MIAA suspends all sports activities

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) and its member institutions announced Thursday the suspension of all sports activities.

The suspension applies to all institutional practices and competitions in any MIAA sport until further notice.

The association’s decision is the result of ongoing consultation with campus leaders, and it follows Thursday’s decision by the NCAA to cancel winter and spring championships for all three divisions.

The health of MIAA student-athletes, coaches, administrators and their communities is paramount during the ongoing coronavirus health crisis, the association said. The MIAA and its member institutions will continue to closely monitor all information and developments connected to the COVID-19 disease.
