If you want to talk about Monmouth University Football, Quincy University Basketball, Notre Dame Men's Soccer, or whatever, this is the place.

Has the Summit League announced how they are going to handle COVID, with cases rising and teams be unable to play games, will games be rescheduled or will teams forfeit? I haven't seen an anoucement and not seeing anything on their website, unless I'm not looking in the right place.

The Summit League alters COVID-19 No Contest policy for league games.

The Summit League’s Joint Council voted unanimously to change its COVID-19 No Contest policy for the remainder of the 2021-22 men’s and women’s basketball league season on Tuesday.

Originally, teams that were unable to play a scheduled league game due to positive COVID-19 cases and/or quarantine requirements would have to forfeit those contests this season, impacting league standings.

The approved adjustment allows for institutions to request that the league declare games as no contests if a team does not have eight or more players and one or more coaches available due to COVID-19 protocols. If a team does not have that number of players or coaches due to COVID-19 protocols or local health authorities require a team to discontinue participation, the game will be declared a no contest and will not be rescheduled.

For seeding purposes regarding The Summit League Basketball Championships, if teams have played a different number of League games due to no contests, winning percentage will be used as the first criteria to determine seeds.

Any changes to COVID-19 policies regarding spring sports sponsored by The Summit League will be discussed at a later date.
