Athletics & Recreation is planning for a return to full activity, starting this fall with the resumption of intercollegiate practice and competition activities and increased activities for club sports, intramural and recreation. Varsity student-athletes on fall teams are scheduled to report for pre-season practices starting August 17 and Brown will host its first home contest of the 2021-22 athletic campaign on Sunday, August 29th at 1:00 p.m. a women’s soccer game against Holy Cross.
Team practices may be held both indoors and outdoors with full team practices inclusive of all team members, coaches and support staff. All practices, strength and conditioning sessions, and sports medicine activities must be supervised by team coaches, strength and conditioning coaches, and athletic trainers. The number of athletes permitted in indoor practices is limited by the capacity of each facility, based upon RIDOH guidelines for maximum occupants per square foot.
While actively participating in practice/games, student-athletes are not required to wear a face covering during either inside or outside activities. However, all student-athletes must maintain social distancing and wear a face covering when not actively competing in a drill or in competition (indoors) and must maintain social distancing when not actively competing in a drill or in competition (outdoors). Face coverings must be worn at all times in the strength & conditioning facility, in the athletic training rooms, and during in-person team meetings.
Athletic facilities are also open for voluntary activities for student-athletes.
