The North Star Athletic Association is issuing a "pause" in all conference activities until March 30. This hiatus includes all in-season spring sports as well as out-of-season sport activities. No organized practices will be allowed during that time period. Teams currently participating on their spring trips will be allowed to complete their schedules at this time.
"This is an extremely fluid situation and we continue to closely monitor current developments, trends, and mandates, which may dictate changes in our plan moving forward", stated North Star Commissioner Cory Anderson. "We are in regular communication with the NAIA regarding decisions they will make at the national level and the possible impact it may have on our student-athletes."
"We have a large footprint and our spring sports cover five states (Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota & North Dakota) which obviously requires dealing with a myriad of agencies. Our desire is to discuss the best course of action moving forward in the short-term and to provide time to consider long-term steps."
