Patriot League Approves Cost-Saving Measures

The Patriot League athletic directors unanimously adopted several cost-saving measures that pertain to the conduct and administration of the Patriot League regular season and Championships. These measures were endorsed by the membership for implementation in 2009-10 and are in response to the current financial climate and anticipated budgetary impact on their respective campuses. It is expected that the measures will be in place for at least two years, pending further review of the economic condition.

Specifically, the measures adopted by the athletic directors include the creation of a sport specific travel squad size policy for all 23 sports, the elimination of awards banquets at League Championships for all sports and the use of teleconferencing for all head coaches meetings and select administrative committees.
