KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Heart of America Athletic Conference has developed a revised league schedule for the upcoming 2020-21 season.
The original conference schedule showcased a mix of three cross-division games and four divisional competitions each night for the majority of the schedule, with regular season play coming to an end on February 20.
The new schedule features a front-loaded division focus that highlights six division contests and one cross-division game for the majority of conference play dates through January. The revised schedule also adds built-in additional make-up dates for any postponed contests, which will give institutions some flexibility as they navigate the COVID-19 landscape.
“We are continuing to adjust our sails as we navigate the COVID-19 landscape,” shared Commissioner Lori Thomas. “We have learned so much from the obstacles and challenges of our fall sport schedules and this overhaul allows us to put what we’ve learned into action as we move into the conference schedule.”
Division play is slated to open on Wednesday, November 18. The top four teams from each division will advance to postseason play. The league’s postseason tournament, which will feature three single-elimination rounds, is scheduled to begin with the quarterfinals in late-February.
Each member institution will be updating schedule information on their individual athletic sites and the conference site.
