NSAA moving forward on fall sports

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (PlayNorthStar.com) — The North Star Athletic Association (NSAA) and its Board of Directors are preparing to move forward with athletics in the Fall in conjunction with the member institutions re-opening their campuses. The North Star Athletic Association had issued a pause in all conference activities on March 13 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since that time, the NSAA leadership and member campuses are collaborating with the NAIA and a myriad of agencies on many jurisdictional levels to prepare the best course of action moving forward, both in the short term and in the long term.

As development of return to play guidelines and contingency plans will remain fluid with the priority remaining the overall health and welfare of everyone in the NSAA community.

“We are currently preparing for Fall sports to begin on time. How that occurs and is executed may not look the same, but our goal is to move forward with the best possible outcome. Allowing our member campuses the ability to exercise autonomy and flexibility to return to practice and competition safely is important,” stated North Star Commissioner Cory Anderson.

“The NSAA leadership has worked hard to find mutually agreeable contingency plans thar are beneficial to the North Star membership. Finding balance in the resocialization of Fall sports to our member campuses and remaining mindful of the crisis which has negatively impacted so many is our goal.”
