Pac-12 Extends Ban on Team Activities

March 30, 2020
863

 The Pac-12 announced Monday that following a meeting of its CEOs, it has made the decision to extend its previously announced suspension of organized team activities through May 31. When it was first announced the ban was to run through Monday.

The conference said there “will be certain limited exceptions based upon student-athlete well-being, and with periodic re-evaluations over the coming weeks should circumstances warrant a change in policy.”

The extension means that any chance Cal had of resuming spring football is gone.

Key elements of the suspension include the following:

  • No organized, in-person team activities of any type;
  • No in-person voluntary workouts, film study sessions, meetings, technique drills or practices of any type;
  • Virtual or online supervised voluntary workouts and skill instruction are not permitted, regardless of location;
  • Virtual group activities, including film study, are permitted to two (2) hours per week for football and four (4) hours per week for all other sports.  We are appealing to the NCAA to increase the two-hour football limit in the near future;
  • Coaches can recommend written, self-directed workout plans, and taped demonstration videos on workout plans are allowed in order to demonstrate proper form and technique;
  • In-person, on-campus nutrition may be provided in circumstances where student-athletes are unable to leave campus, and off-campus nutrition is limited to distribution of products normally available on campus
  • It is fully permissible to provide non-athletically related support to student-athletes, including sports medicine treatments, physical therapy and rehabilitation; academic support; and mental health and wellness support.
  • It is permissible for institutions to provide off-campus student-athletes with apparel and personal equipment that is regularly available to student-athletes when they are on campus for conditioning workouts.  It is not permissible to rent, purchase or arrange for conditioning or strength training equipment or machines.
