The Southwest Preparatory Conference cancels fall sports due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It has become the first group in Texas to cancel High-school sports events for the fall season.


The SPC Board of Directors has approved the cancellation of sports, including football, cross country, field hockey, and boys and girls volleyball.

The SPC includes 18 private schools. Almost eight of these conference schools are based in the DFW Metroplex: Cistercian, Episcopal School of Dallas, Fort Worth Country Day, Trinity Valley, Greenhill, Hockaday, the Oakridge School, and St. Mark's.

The board came up with the decision and gave this statement, "We recognize each of our member schools is under unusual and challenging circumstances regarding each aspect of school operations. We recognize we are members of a Conference with a wide variance in local conditions, approaches, and opinions regarding how to handle these challenging circumstances related to athletic competition. We recognize our member schools are located in multiple metro areas, spread over a wide geographic area, with varying health conditions, regulations, public opinions, and governmental recommendations."
