Less than 24 hours after the NCAA canceled the winter and spring championships, it sent a memo granting another season of eligibility to spring student athletes. 

In a memo, the NCAA Council Coordination Committee said it "agreed that it will be appropriate to grant relief for the use of a season of competition for student-athletes who have participated in spring sports." 

While that will grant players another year of eligibility, there are a few questions that still need to be answered. One of the biggest is how that will impact financial aid limits for the programs. The committee has yet to come to that decision yet, but said that will be addressed. 

This decision comes less than a day after all spring sports in the college sports were suspended due to the growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus. The cancellation of the NCAA championships may have essentially ended careers of many seniors across the country, if their conference seasons and tournaments aren't reinstated. 

Winter sport athletes don't have the hope of a regular season being reinstated. The cancellation of postseason tournaments ended the careers of winter sport seniors. While the spring sport athletes have been granted another year of eligibility, the winter sport athletes haven't yet. The committee said it is looking into solutions for those athletes.
