Unfortunately the impacts of the Coronavirus and the most up-to-date measures to prevent spread have now terminally impacted the NCSA’s chances of hosting the 2020 NCSA World Series scheduled to be held May 14-17 in Columbus, GA. At present there are only nine remaining NCSA member teams that have not officially been shut down for the remainder of the school year. Despite the Governor of Georgia beginning the process of reopening the state this week, there are not enough potential teams available to successfully host the event which normally consists of a field of sixteen teams. The NCSA is also of the opinion that there is not enough of league wide representation to effectively conduct a National Championship event in a modified format should health and safety concerns dissipate by mid-May.
The health and safety of our nationwide community and all those associated with the NCSA continues to be our No. 1 priority, and our hope is to play a role – responsibly – in the world’s return to enjoying the sports we love.
While we can all agree, this is certainly not how we envisioned or wanted this season to come to an end, it is the reality given the impact of COVID-19. We thank you all for your continued support of the NCSA and the love for the game. We do wish we were in a much different state of the world and had much better news to provide. However, we have been optimistic throughout this process and will continue to do so. We hope that you can share in our optimism and know that we as a league will be better than ever in 2020-2021.
We will be in touch in the coming days and weeks with updates on this past season and plans moving forward to prepare for next season. If you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know. Stay safe!
