The ODAC is set to begin fall athletics competitions on Friday, Sept. 11, the D3 conference announced on Friday.

Men’s and women’s soccer schedules have been changed. Both sports will now play a complete round-robin schedule with the men now playing 12 league games and the women 13. Non-conference games scheduled after Sept. 11 not in conflict with the league schedules are unchanged at this time.
Additional changes are likely as the league schools have agreed to minimize overnight travel.

“A great deal of thought and consideration has gone into these guidelines,” Shenandoah University Director of Athletics Dr. Bridget Lyons said. “I want to thank all of my fellow athletic directors and especially the athletic trainers for putting the time in to come up with a way we can get our student-athletes back on to the playing fields in the safest manner possible.
“Student-athlete safety is our focus and we will continue to monitor this situation as it is constantly evolving. We will have announcements regarding scheduling changes, spectators, and safety protocols in the near future.”
