NCAA Div. I Gives Spring Sport Athletes Extra Year
The NCAA will allow Division I spring sport athletes who had their seasons shortened by the coronavirus outbreak to have an additional year of eligibility.
The NCAA Division I Council voted yesterday to permit those athletes to compete in the spring of 2021. However, the council did not guarantee financial aid, instead allowing each school to choose how much aid it gives to each returning athlete.
Winter sports were not included in the decision.
Similar actions have already been taken by Division II, Division III, the NAIA and the NJCAA.
