UMAC Information

The Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) Council of Presidents and Chancellors supported a recommendation from the UMAC Council of Athletics Directors to suspend conference competition through December 31, 2020, in the sports of men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s indoor track and field.

Conference competition in winter sports will begin in 2021 with modified conference schedules for men’s and women’s basketball.  The adjusted conference basketball schedules will be finalized when additional information is available including but not limited to NCAA Sports Science Institute (SSI) requirements for winter sports and confirmed NCAA Division III Championship dates. Engagement in non-conference competition during the fall semester remains at the discretion of UMAC institutions and will not be governed by the UMAC.
