Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Michigan State Canceling Swimming and Diving Programs Due to Lack of Funding”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

This is all because of the pandemic and the policies that came with it. Expect to see a lot more of this.

Michigan State University Athletics announced Thursday that all men’s and women’s swimming and diving varsity sports will end at the conclusion of the 2020-21 season.

The move to cancel these programs was brought on due to the financial strain the university is experiencing from the pandemic.

“The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have touched every area of our life. It’s forced us all to evaluate not only our current place, but also our prospects for the future. Michigan State Athletics is not immune from those calculations,” a statement from the athletics department read.

Going forward, scholarship commitments will be honored for any student-athletes who choose to finish their undergraduate degree at MSU, the university said. For students who choose to transfer, the university is offering help with that transition. Also, coaching contracts will be honored through June 30, 2021.
