What is the likelihood of any athletic teams competing this academic year?

Any athletic engagement will begin and proceed slowly and with an abundance of caution. Knowing how important athletics is in the lives of many students, we hope to provide opportunities for team engagement. 

Williams sports teams will not travel and compete during the fall and winter semesters. Our decision has been guided by the utmost attention to safety protocols to ensure the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, staff and the community. Coaches will work with athletes on approved outdoor training activities. The fitness center and all indoor athletic facilities are closed and likely will remain closed throughout the fall semester. This means that students, including varsity athletes, will not have access to indoor athletic spaces (e.g., pool, squash courts, basketball courts, etc).

Decisions about winter and spring teams have not yet been made. The Athletics Department hosted a special town hall devoted to information and discussion of these issues. Watch the archived video here.
