NAIA Announces Return Date for Fall Sports

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics is planning to resume fall sports pending government health approval.

The NAIA told Southern Oregon University in a letter Thursday that all fall sports could resume in September.

With the return to football now in reach, SOU’s head coach Charlie Hall says there’s a lot of excitement… but also some concern.

“We’re excited to get to do that but we’re also very aware that we’re in the middle of a pandemic.” Hall says, “There’s a lot of concerns and safeguards that need to be in place for staff and players to be safe. ”

The letter states that 50 percent of the teams per sport *must be cleared before the season can begin. All fall sports are expected to resume September 5th, football will begin one week later.
