SEC Makes Adjustments Due to Covid-19

April 3, 2020 by Courtsey

The SEC today announced that all in-person athletics activities, including team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, whether voluntary or required, as well as camps and coaches clinics, will be suspended through at least May 31, based on public health advisories related to continuing developments associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The SEC had previously announced that in-person athletics activities were suspended through April 15.

Activities, such as casino games are growing in popularity in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition, virtual film review that does not include physical activity is permissible. Effective April 6, activity of this nature will be expanded to four (4) hours per week consistent with an NCAA rule waiver and NCAA legislation, an increase from the previously permissible maximum of two (2) hours per week. Any such activity must be scheduled in accordance with the institution's established Time Management Policy and must not interfere with required class time for online instruction.

SEC member institutions will continue to provide their student-athletes with care and support to meet needs in areas including academics, medical care, mental health and wellness, nutrition and housing as needed. You can find out more about us online casinos.

Further, the conference announced on April 1st that schools which were scheduled to host Conference championship events that were cancelled in 2020 due to issues related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) will now host those events in the spring of 2021.

Those effected events are as follows:

- Alabama, SEC Women's Tennis Championship and SEC Softball Tournament
- Arkansas, SEC Men's Tennis Championship
- Georgia, SEC Equestrian Championship
- Texas A&M, SEC Outdoor Track & Field Championships

Schools that would have hosted these events in 2021 and will now serve as host in 2022 are Auburn for equestrian, Florida for women's tennis and softball, Ole Miss for outdoor track & field and Georgia for men's tennis. Appropriate adjustments will be made to the hosting rotation for equestrian, men's and women's tennis, outdoor track & field and softball conference championships in ensuing years.
