ATLANTA (March 12, 2020) — With the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and their families in mind, as well as the current information provided about COVID-19 by health authorities, the All-Star Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 Beyond Sports Women’s Collegiate All-Star Game presented by the WBCA.
The committee followed the guidance, recommendation and leadership from the WBCA and Beyond Sports to come to this decision. The health and safety of our student-athletes and coaches is first and foremost always our priority.
All events associated with the All-Star game are canceled, including the WBCA Coaches’ Classroom and the Kids’ Clinic, both of which were to be held on Saturday, March 21.
The student-athletes selected to participate in this year’s all-star game have worked tremendously hard for this achievement. The committee will work with the WBCA and Beyond Sports to continue to celebrate the all-stars.
