Update on 2021 Outdoor Championships

2021 Outdoor NEICAAA Championships

Date: May 14 and May 15, 2021 The date chosen for the meet was determined last February based on the dates of the Division III and the IC4A Championships, as a majority of NEICAAA members are from Division III and many of the Division I schools participate marginally in the IC4A Championships. Had NEICAAA known the Division III Championships would be cancelled, a different date would have been selected which would also have accommodated the Big East schools.

Location: Veterans Stadium, New Britain, CT

There is a limit of 4,000 people that can be present including athletes, coaches , and spectators. NEICAAA will monitor the number of officials and spectators and asks for each school to monitor Covid restrictions.

Coaches: Please let Irwin know as soon as possible of your intention to compete as there are many contingencies to consider:

There are several COVID Regulations to consider, including:

  • Whether to compete men and women together or on different days

  • Whether to have trials or heats on time bases on preceding situation

  • Whether to compete with 32 running, 24 field event sizes or less

Timing/Officials:

NEICAAA has secured a timing company and key officials procured, but still need field event officials
