Division II Student-Athletes and Advocates:

SAAC members at Division II institutions throughout our country have been informed of a recommendation from the Division II Commissioners’ Association to place both minimum and maximum competition contests/dates on all sports during the 2020-2021 academic year.  While we both appreciate and recognize the importance of this pandemic, we also believe that reducing minimums is absolutely an appropriate step for the 2020-2021 academic year.  This allows for an appropriate cost containment baseline. 

However, reducing maximums is not aligned with Division II’s mission.  Further, as many SAAC groups and student-athletes were not consulted on this topic, we are urging the NCAA Division II Management Council and NCAA Division II Presidents’ Council to enact the reduction in minimum competitions – permitting cost containment throughout our entire division – but also protecting the maximum competitions as they stand.   In other words, ONLY REDUCE MINIMUMS, NOT MAXIMUMS, IN EACH SPORT. The minimum reduction accomplished the cost containment goal.

Thank you for your time, consideration, and support –
