The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference announced this week it is abandoning plans to hold its fall sports competitions during the spring.

The fall season is now cancelled, the PSAC says -- but there are some caveats.

Should six or more of the PSAC's member institutions "commit to participating in any of those sports, the conference will reinstate a championship season," the PSAC said.

The decision to cancel PSAC mandated fall sports competition does not preclude individual institutions from participating in countable athletically related activities, nor exploring competition outside of the previously mandated schedule, the conference said.

The PSAC has 18 member schools. The fall sports season includes football, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, field hockey, and women's volleyball.

The conference said it will announce a decision on the upcoming winter sports season -- which includes seasons for men's and women's basketball, wrestling, indoor track & field, and swimming -- next week.

The PSAC Board also voted to proceed with its intended mandated schedules and championships for 2021 spring sports season, the conference said. PSAC-sponsored sports the spring are: men's and women's outdoor track & field, tennis and golf, as well as baseball, softball and women's lacrosse.
