Athletics and fitness

The health and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, staff and Green Knights fans is top of mind. The college is implementing the following measures to ensure safety.

Fitness center

The Mulva Family Fitness & Sports Center is currently open to faculty and staff, with enhanced cleaning that follows the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC) and CDC guidelines. The fitness center will reopen to students on Monday, Aug. 24, by-appointment. More information on making an appointment for the fitness center will be forthcoming. Exercise equipment is being restricted to comply with physical-distancing guidelines, and access to equipment that can’t be thoroughly cleaned is restricted. The college discourages high-risk individuals from using the fitness center.

The Northern Collegiate Hockey Association, the conference affiliation for men's and women's hockey, has not yet made a determination for its schedule.
