BULLETIN: Jan. 13, 2021 — NCAA Division II field hockey is all but cancelled for the spring season

Remember this?

This afternoon, the Northeast-10, the only other Division II field hockey conference to have an Automatic Qualifier to the NCAA Division II field hockey tournament, has decided not to have a regular season or a conference tournament during the repositioned fall season, which had been scheduled to start quite soon.

Now, the news release from the NE10 does mention an allowance for individual teams to schedule individual games with opponents, subject to local health regulations as well as NCAA policies. Teams are also allowed to practice, train, and engage in various team activities.

According to The Worcester Telegram, at least one school, Assumption, is looking to form a pod with other local Division II colleges to schedule limited competition this spring, which is something that looks an awful like the spring hockey scrimmages that usually dot the landscape that time of year.

With these kinds of announcement flowing through the news, you wonder if collegiate field hockey for the 20-21 academic year is a fool’s errand.
