CAA Adopts “Extreme Flexibility Model” for Olympic Sports Scheduling in 2020-21

RICHMOND, Va. (June 3, 2020) – In response to the multitude of challenges associated with the CoVID-19 pandemic, the Colonial Athletic Association has adopted an innovative scheduling concept for Olympic team sports during the 2020-21 season.

The Extreme Flexibility Model (EFM) is designed to provide institutions with the opportunity to maximize cost savings relative to expenses associated with regular-season travel, while also providing student-athletes and coaches with the safest possible options when traveling to away contests.

Under the model, each CAA institution has committed to play at least the minimum number of contests per sport to meet NCAA sport sponsorship requirements, and has the option of scheduling additional games up to the NCAA maximum if they so choose. While it is expected that in many instances conference institutions will compete against other league members, it will not be required that an institution play any CAA contests. However, CAA institutions in the same region would have the ability to play multiple games against each other.

"We remain immersed in a period of time in which there are still more questions than answers," said CAA Commissioner Joe D'Antonio. "I am confident that when the time is appropriate our institutions' Presidents and Chancellors, working in conjunction with federal, state and local governments, will guide each of our campuses through the resocialization process. As our athletic departments participate in that process, the EFM provides the CAA with the best opportunity to play regular season contests during the 2020-21 academic year."

The format and field size for conference tournaments is still under discussion and will be finalized in the near future.

The EFM will be used in the sports of baseball, field hockey, men's and women's lacrosse, men's and women's soccer, softball and volleyball, and all final scheduling decisions will be made in accordance with federal, state and local health guidelines, as well as in consultation with policies put in place on each individual campus.

UD will re-open on September 1. Send everyone home at Thanksgiving. Finish the last two weeks of the semester on-line, ending in mid-December.

What if UD FB is on a playoff run? How about UD Basketball & other Wnter Sports? It seems like many of the FBS colleges are planning to open in mid-Aug, end clasroom instruction just before the Thanksgiving break, and send everyone home to to take on-line exams. I still haven't seen anything addressing how you handle athletics under this scheme.

Chill Bill. Good people are working long hours to do what’s best for all concerned. All that’s required from you is a little empathy for what they have to do, like forgoing their summer time off, and patience.

While the article is about St. Thomas moving from D3 to D1, it's also noted the NCAA will vote this week on a plan for schools to start playing Sept 5th.

"I think we'll have a football season, but I think we'll have interruptions." ... Big 12 commissioner

"The Pac-12 has required each of its schools to test every student-athlete before returning to campus. The SEC has strongly encouraged it but has not made it a requirement. The Big 12 and ACC also have left any testing decisions to each individual campus."

"Unless players are essentially in a bubble -- insulated from the community and they are tested nearly every day -- it would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall. If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year." .... Fauci

Hope it is ok to just comment? I don’t have the links as they were push notices, but Apple stores are temporarily closing in several states, the Toronto Blue Jays just shut down their training facility, 5 Phillies tested positive, and college after college are reporting players with infections, including Texas with 13 players.

I agree with Fauchi, it will be hard to play college football let alone MLB or the NFL. There is big money at stake, but things are getting very bad in much of the country. At least baseball and football are played outside as opposed to .....

23 Clemson players test positive

We expected some players to test positive upon returning to campus. But Clemson players have been back since June 1, and isolated for 7 days before first tests. So this clearly spread within the team recently.
