Humboldt State Athletics

The California Collegiate Athletic Association Board of Presidents announced on Tuesday that the conference intends to proceed with a traditional conference schedule this fall.

“Given the current conditions, it is appropriate for us to return to athletic competition,” chair of the CCAA Board of Presidents Dr. William Covino said. “Of course, we will be monitoring the situation as it unfolds over the coming weeks and months and make any adjustments as necessary.”

According to a press release announcing the decision, “The CCAA plans to align with CSU system guidance, procedures and best practices in regards to all vaccination policies, keeping the health and safety of our campus communities across the conference as our top priority.”

“Needless to say, we are extremely grateful to the Board of Presidents for allowing us to move forward with a traditional schedule for the 2021-22 season,” conference commissioner, Mitch Cox said. “Our student athletes, coaches and staff have been incredibly resilient this past year, and I know that they will be excited to have the opportunity to get back out on the field of play and compete.”

The CCAA suspended conference competition last spring and for the entire 2020/21 school year.

According to the press release, “Additional information about conference schedules will be publicly available at a later date, with further updates on spectator status determined by each campus as local conditions warrant.”
