After consulting with health experts, state-wide higher education officials and the Bay Path COVID working group, President Doran has determined that we cannot safely conduct fall athletics. As a result, we must cancel the fall 2020 athletic season for our soccer, volleyball and cross-country teams. Athletics is a valued part of the Bay Path University experience for our student-athletes and the University community. The health and safety of our students, coaches, staff, officials, fans and opponents is very important and this decision reflects our commitment to these values. We are now exploring creative ways to keep our student-athletes connected, engaged and active during the fall semester. This may include limited access to the athletic fields, the fitness center, on-line strength and conditioning training and SAAC virtual events.
The winter and spring seasons are yet to be determined. It is our hope that we will be able to conduct those seasons in a safe manner.
We will emerge from this situation stronger and ready to compete again and represent Bay Path University in the NECC and NCAA.
Director of Athletics
