Landmark Conference Releases Return to Play Statement (June 10, 2020)

The Landmark Conference released the following statement on Wednesday, June 10, 2020.

The Landmark Conference Executive Board, which consists of each member institution's President, has been meeting diligently since the outbreak of the coronavirus. The Conference has placed a priority on student-athlete wellbeing, along with the health and safety of each campus community.

The Presidents of the Conference unanimously agree that a return to athletic competition in the fall of 2020 is the intent of each respective member institution, but only if it can be done safely. Therefore, each member institution will continue to work within local and state health guidelines, along with guidance from national organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American College Health Association (ACHA), and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), as they finalize their reopening plans.

The Landmark Conference's primary focus for the fall of 2020 will be competition among conference members; we plan to culminate with a conference postseason tournament. Specific details regarding scheduling, the postseason, and other policies will come later this summer.
The Conference is also cognizant of the importance of its spectator policy to parents, alumni, and fans. We will make an announcement regarding a conference-wide spectator policy by Monday, August 3.
