Big Sky Postpones All Fall Sports Until Spring 2021

Due to ongoing concerns related to COVID-19, the Big Sky Conference is postponing all competition for its fall sports to spring 2021.

The league’s Presidents Council convened on Tuesday to affirm the recommendation from its members’ athletic directors.

The decision impacts all Big Sky sports that compete in the fall, both for their championship season (men’s and women’s cross country, soccer and volleyball) and for their non-championship segment (men’s and women’s golf, softball, men’s and women’s tennis).

Additionally, the Presidents Council confirmed that non-conference contests will not be permitted in any Big Sky fall sport, including football. The Council decided on Aug. 6 to postpone the 2020 conference football schedule until the spring.

Big Sky institutions may continue with permissible athletics activities at their discretion while abiding by NCAA legislation, campus policies and local and state regulations.

Decisions regarding the Big Sky’s winter sports of men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s indoor track and field will be made at a later date.
