On Wednesday, the NCAA Division I Council voted to allow voluntary on-campus athletic activities to resume in football and men's and women's basketball starting June 1, multiple sources confirmed to ESPN.
I think this means the NCAA says players can come to campus June 1 but it would still depend if uconn allows it at that time, right?
>>An NCAA vote Wednesday cleared the return of student-athletes to campus in football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball on June 1 through June 30, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports. This decision ends a moratorium on all athletic activities through May 31.
UConn already had a 1,000 kids on campus from March to May even after they sent everyone home. President Tom K said there were no outbreaks during this period.You can't have a season in football without the proper preseason fitness training followed by the team practice work. This is a good opportunity to use testing for covid as well as other measures to see if the people involved in a large group in close contact can stay virus free. If the sports teams can not then bringing back the entire student body would be a no go. The same applies for the men's and women's hoop teams coming back on June 1. It is a controlled setting and seems to be worth a try to see if the coming school year can be possible in any semi-normal fashion.
