Branson Athletics Practices Cancelled

Athletics Directors Rich Mazzola and Veronica Bosque announced on Friday evening, December 4 that athletics practices on campus would not resume on December 7 as planned. They wrote:

"Following today’s press conference by six Bay Area city and county public health directors, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person athletics practices for December, effective Monday, December 7, 2020, through at least January 4, 2021. 

We understand that this is incredibly disappointing news; after many months of eager anticipation and careful planning, we all were looking forward to welcoming students and coaches back for practices. However, we believe the health and safety of our Branson community is paramount, especially as we see COVID case counts rapidly increase across the state and the Bay Area." 

Planning is now underway with the team coaches to create virtual experiences for the teams during the remaining two weeks of classes before Winter Break.
