Frequently Asked Questions

What is the plan for the Pacer athletic teams?

William Peace University athletic teams will continue to follow NCAA and USA South guidelines as it prepares for a return to full competition in the Fall of 2021. The Pacers persevered and all athletic programs were able to compete during the Spring semester. The University will continue to provide athletic competition opportunities, but student-athletes must also maintain compliance with all recommendations and protocols. These include but are not limited to, masking, COVID testing, distancing, and hygiene considerations. In addition, WPU athletics strongly urges all athletes to be vaccinated prior to participation. Full vaccination will have a positive impact upon the overall athletic experience for athletes, spectators and parents. The Fall of 2021 brings us great hope for the future of Pacer athletics but our primary concern remains the health and safety of our students. All returners and recruits will receive information from the athletic department administration and the athletic training staff prior to their arrival on campus. Students should contact their coach, athletic trainer or athletic administration if they have any questions or concerns about NCAA or WPU athletic communications.
