July 23, 2020 –
The American announced that the start of fall Olympic sports will be September 1st at the earliest. The delay will give the member schools time to put in protocols for a safe return for the student-athletes, coaches, and staff.
The sports affected are men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, and volleyball.
Temple participates in the American in fall Olympic sports with the exception of field hockey where the Owls are members of the Big East. At this time the Big East conference will not play any non-conference games during the fall semester.
For games that were scheduled before the September 1st date, the schools can make the adjustments.
The league will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.
