CU Buffs Rick George Updates Fans
Collegiate athletics have been canceled for the remainder of the spring, but CU Buffs athletic director Rick George emailed fans to thank them for being loyal and provide an update on the student athletes.
George reiterated that all athletic events, including awards ceremonies, have been canceled until further notice. It is unclear at this time if this will remain the same if school reopens for the semester.
The deadline to renew football season tickets has been extended to May 6, and the ticket office team will be working remotely and filling orders online.
As for the student athletes, Zoom was immediately utilized to help transition the students into an online school environment. Athletes that remain in Boulder are still being provided breakfast and lunch, and will continue to be provided meals moving forward. Students will also continue to have access to medical care through telehealth video conferencing to support students’ mental and physical health needs.
George reiterated that the main focus in the coming weeks is for the health and wellness of the athletes, saying, “Our leadership team, coaches and staff are working hard to care for our student-athletes. We understand that the current situation is uncharted, but we have a great team that is working diligently to provide the best experience possible for our student-athletes.”
