SUNY Morrisville Athletics will continue to follow NCAA and New York State guidance, and updates to participation will be made in accordance with any changes made by each organization.
All student-athletes will participate in two campus-administered COVID-19 tests prior to starting practice for the Spring 2021 semester. The first test will be administered as students return to campus, and the Athletics Department will conduct a second round of testing on Monday, Feb. 8, 2021. Team practices will then be allowed to begin as soon as the results of this test have been confirmed.
For team practices, student-athletes are permitted to hold team workout sessions in groups of 10 or fewer, as recommended by NCAA guidelines.
Following New York State and NCAA guidance, outdoor workouts are of the utmost importance to minimize risk of spreading COVID-19 and will be held whenever possible.
In accordance with campus cleaning protocols, locker room use will be prohibited.
