UVI Athletics Cancels Playing Season for Spring 2021

The University of the Virgin Islands Athletics Department has made the decision to cancel its playing season for Spring 2021 due to surging COVID-19 cases across the United States. COVID-19 has directly impacted all levels of intercollegiate athletics and is projected to rise within the US southeastern hemisphere. “The health and safety of our student athletes, as well as our coaches, staff and all stakeholders will always be our top priority,” said Dr. Jerel Drew, UVI athletics director.

An increase of cases in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Louisiana, the competition states for all UVI athletic competition is expected to reach an all-time high. In light of this, the Athletics Department has concluded that the risks are far too great for student athletes and staff to travel.
