FARMINGTON, Utah – Following a vote Monday by its Presidents’ Council, the Big Sky Conference has canceled all practices and workouts for its athletic departments through May 15. This action includes the cancellation of all spring football practices that had not yet been completed.

Big Sky institutions continue to retain the option to provide support services for their student-athletes while following national, state and campus protocols for social distancing and preventing the spread of COVID-19. These services may vary based on each institution’s circumstances and can include athletic training, academics and mental health, as well as other programming that is in the best interest of supporting the student-athletes.

On March 18, the Presidents’ Council canceled the 2020 Big Sky spring athletic competitions and championships, as well as suspended team or individual practices and workouts until at least April 3. The Presidents’ Council also had voted on March 12 to suspend competition for spring sports and to cancel the remainder of the 2020 Basketball Championships.
