Pac-12 sports aren’t coming back anytime soon.
Due to concerns over the coronavirus, the conference announced Monday that it has suspended all team activities through May 31. Previously, team activities were suspended through the end of March.
Most notably, this extension all but wipes out spring football games and practices. The Arizona Wildcats were scheduled to have their spring game on April 4.
However, the conference says it will “convene regularly” to assess the circumstances, so theoretically this suspension could be lifted sooner than May 31.
Here are the key elements of the policy:
- 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.
