COVID-19 Era Dropped & Suspended Sports

UPDATES & NOTES

NEW PAGE: SPORTS CANCELLATIONS TRACKER 

July 3 Update: The fall/2020-21 sports cancellations has grown to need its own page. That link is above. This page is DROPPED sports or suspended sports. Please note the change. 

NOTES
Florida International had no athletes impacted by the loss of indoor track, thus their athlete count for that sport is zero.
Alabama-Huntsville dropped two Division II sports and one Division I sport. Sports where schools are competing "up" list that school's conference by that specific conference where they compete. Division I Ice Hockey since reinstated.
Central Michigan dropped men's indoor and outdoor track, but athletes were for both sports. Athlete count is from the website's published roster and the outdoor contains the impacted athletes.
St. Edward's lists cheer as a co-ed sport. The athlete totals should be two men, 15 women. UMass Dartmouth dropped co-ed sailing, it's counted as a women's sport with a roster adjustment of two men, seven women (adjusted for rostered seniors due to the new academic year).
Schools listed as closing in 2020-21 aren't YET counted as schools closed, since technically their doors remain open. Schools that will stay open until overtaken by others (ex. Pine Manor) are not included.
Since we've passed the 2019-20 academic year, schools announcing closures but still competing for the 2020-21 academic year will also be counted as closing. 

REINSTATED PROGRAMS (5)
Alabama-Huntsville (Division I Men's Ice Hockey)
Bowling Green (Division I Baseball)
Brown (Division I Indoor, Outdoor Track & Field, Cross Country)

SCHOOLS WITH A CANCELLATION OF FALL SPORTS WITH WINTER SPORTS TBD AFTER JAN. 1
Pratt Institute (Division III)
The College of New Jersey (Division III)
