The conference said it could allow for a shortened competitive schedule amongst conference opponents if COVID-19 risk has reduced by mid-September. Until then, teams will continue to train through the fall for competition in the spring.
"Safety, health and the well-being of student-athletes, coaches, administrators and the campus community at large is the primary concern and responsibility of the Atlantic 10 Conference and its member institutions," the conference said in a statement.
The A-10 has no reached a decision regarding winter sports like Basketball at this time.
The fall competitive schedules for men's golf, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's swimming and diving, and women's rowing will also be postponed, as will non-traditional competition seasons for baseball, softball and women’s lacrosse.
