The Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) intends to move forward with scheduled conference seasons and championships for all fall sports including cross country, field hockey, soccer and volleyball for NDMU. This is an exciting next step in our return to campus for our student-athletes and our Notre Dame community.
All-CSAC institutions are firmly committed to following expectations outlined in the CSAC Return to Play Plan in combination with all NCAA safety recommendations. At NDMU, we continue to follow our NDMU Together safety protocols and closely monitor all local, state and federal guidelines in maintaining the health and safety of our community and our student-athletes.
All current rostered fall student-athletes have been in contact with their respective coaches to prepare for the start of their season. At this time, only students who have been cleared to come to campus are eligible to participate in athletics this fall. Any questions regarding eligibility can be directed towards the athletic director, Ashley Hodges.
The CSAC Board of Directors, athletic administrators and conference office staff will continue to monitor the conditions of COVID-19 throughout the semester to maintain the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, officials and game personnel and make necessary adjustments as the season proceeds.
