NCAA to allow voluntary activities starting June 1st

College sports’ pandemic policies have been uniform. That may be about to change

The NCAA took the first step in a return to college athletics on Wednesday.

NCAA Division I football and basketball players can return to campus for "voluntary athletic activities" on June 1, following a Division I Council decision Wednesday.

Should schools allow campuses to open for the eligible student-athletes to conduct workouts, they should be in compliance with necessary state and local regulations, such as practicing proper distancing and limiting the size of groups.

UCLA suspended all athletic events beginning March 12, and with additional cancelations from the Pac-12 and NCAA, both the men's and women's basketball programs were unable to complete their postseason competitions.

However, that announcement followed details of reopening phases issued by the state of Kentucky and University of Louisville that differ from guidelines Duke Athletics must adhere to.

Bron even talked about playing on the same team as Jordan in a few runs and made sure to let us know they didn't lose ANY games. Well that almost became a reality in 2011, James revealed in a podcast on Uninterrupted with Paul Rivera and Maverick Carter .

For Indiana and other Big Ten schools, that ability to return remains dependent upon the Big Ten lifting its own ban on all organized team activities, which is set to expire on June 1 as well. Many athletic departments need the revenue generated by football to fund other sports.

"I think we can get there", Smith said.

In more than 30 years at The N&O, Chip Alexander has covered the N.C. State, UNC, Duke and East Carolina beats, and now is in his 11th season on the Carolina Hurricanes beat.

GU's fall sport athletes usually trickle back to campus in late July or early August, but Roth indicated numerous men's and women's basketball players - especially those who come from other countries - stay on campus throughout June and July to take advantage of summer academic sessions.

The council also made several other structural moves, including temporarily waiving minimum attendance requirements for Football Bowl Subdivision schools to retain FBS status, the highest level of college football.
