Like it or not, we’re facing the reality of the potential of some or all fall sports being eliminated due to the pandemic. The WIAA has already decided to delay the start of the fall season by three weeks from mid-August to September 5th for football and 7th for the rest of the sports.

NWAC shuffles fall sports to February due to pandemic
The reality of the pandemic has caused a change in direction for schools in the Northwest Athletic Conference, including Wenatchee Valley College…
In a decision announced last week by NWAC Executive Director Marco Azurdia, the Executive Board approved a plan to move the majority of fall sports to winter and spring quarters.
Men’s and Women’s Cross Country and Men’s and Women’s Golf will commence in the fall on a reduced and modified schedule. All other NWAC sports will begin competition in winter and spring quarters of 2021 with reduced schedules as well. This means soccer and volleyball will start around the same time as baseball and softball.
According to NWAC Executive Director, Marco Azurdia, “We have been thoughtful, comprehensive, flexible, and listened to our constituents. It is time to move forward. The plan pushed the conversations with our member college administrators thus leading to the Executive Board’s decision. We have said from the beginning that flexibility, creativity, adaptability, and patience are essential to the success of our return to play.”
