Islanders Athletics’ return to campus plan has proven effective during the fall semester, with student-athletes from all sport programs participating in training and conditioning activities in a closely monitored environment. A robust Covid-19 testing program has been implemented throughout the fall semester in accordance with safety guidelines established by the NCAA and CDC. Additional guidelines for the upcoming college basketball season were recently distributed by the NCAA and will be implemented by TAMU-CC Athletics.

The athletics department has conducted several events with fans in attendance during the fall semester. Protocols have included universal masking for spectators and event staff, socially distanced seating arrangements in accordance with local and CDC guidelines, touchless ticketing for entry, and a clear bag policy. Similar protocols will be implemented for the upcoming men’s and women’s basketball seasons which will begin on November 25th. Game schedules are being finalized and will be distributed in the coming weeks.
