Recent directives from the NCAA and Southland Conference enabled basketball student-athletes to begin voluntary athletic activities on campus, with Islanders strength and conditioning staff present, throughout the month of June.

The first phase of Islanders Athletics’ return to campus has proven effective and will be extended in preparation for the return of fall sport student-athletes later this summer.

Student-athletes will be required to participate in a robust screening process based on NCAA and team physicians’ recommendations before being cleared for participation in athletic activities.

The athletics department is preparing for fan attendance at events this fall and will release schedules in the coming weeks. We will comply with all state and local guidelines regarding event capacity and social distancing and will ensure the safest environment possible for Islanders fans.
