As of right now, plans are to have Football season next spring. Teams will play a slate of six regional conference games, with teams split into divisions. The games will are slated to span from Feb. 27 through April 24, with a championship game set for May 1.

Volleyball is also typically played in the fall. Its season will instead bump to the first weekend of January. The conference plans to develop regional schedules for other sports in the future. Conference officials announced in July that the fall season would be suspended.
