D’Youville will resume athletics team activities wherever permitted to do so by government regulations in accordance to those guidelines. D’Youville’s Director of Athletics coordinates with NCAA conference peers on a weekly basis and is preparing to adhere to all guidelines set forth by the NCAA. There will be no indoor or outdoor competition for the fall 2020 semester. Spectators will not be permitted to attend any practices or competitions until further notice. This is a decision that will be re-evaluated periodically based on the evolving situation and regulatory guidelines providing oversight for the athletics activities.
When D’Youville decides to allow spectators to attend athletics events, individuals will be mandated to wear the proper PPE and adhere to social distancing guidelines proposed by D’Youville. In the event that someone does not feel comfortable attending in-person or if capacity limits prohibit in-person attendance, D’Youville is preparing to live-stream athletics events for remote viewing. All policies for attending athletics events will be clearly posted on the athletics website as well as outside all athletics facilities.
