SWAC response to COVID-19 - 3.12.20 10:30am
2020 SWAC Basketball Tournament Canceled - Alternative to be offered later in year.

Sectionals: March 13-15, 2020 / States: March 20-22, 2020 - CANCELED 

Please see our statement below regarding SWAC and COVID-19. As of 10am 3.12.20 the 2020 SWAC Basketball Tournament  is CANCELLED as it is currently planned. Please see the attached press release and info below  We will remain transparent with you and provide updates as needed. We will continue to work with the SWAC committee to communicate changes as they happen. 

The North Carolina Recreation and Park Association (NCRPA) and StateWide Athletics Committee (SWAC) is following the evolving novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in our state, across the country and the world. The SWAC committee and NCRPA have decided that it is in the best interest of participants, their fans and family, and our host sites that we cancel the 2020 SWAC Basketball Tournament as it is currently planned.  The committee is working with partners to either offer the tournament in its current format in May or June or offer an alternative format for teams to compete. We understand that this may be disappointing to some teams, but the health, wellness, and safety of our members and the communities they serve are essential to all of us at NCRPA, and we are choosing to follow the precedents set by the NBA, NCAA, ACC, and others and err on the side of caution.

We ask that parents, players, family members, and coaches hold off on contacting NCRPA and SWAC, as we work with the department administrators who have submitted teams to determine if and how we can offer a tournament later in the year.

Please see the press release for full details.
