On Wednesday, the Division I Council approved a package of proposals that would move fall NCAA Championships to the Spring, including men's and women's soccer.

Schools that are playing this fall can be considered for the playoff field. The Division I men's and women's championships will take place on March 15, according to the release.

Volleyball's regular season will begin January 22 and end on April 10.

The men's bracket will include 36 total teams, made up of 24 automatic qualifiers and 12 at-large selections, while the women's bracket will include 48 total teams of 31 automatic qualifiers and 17 at-large selections, according to the release.

Most regular seasons would end in the second half of April, with the exception of cross country and water polo, which would conclude their regular seasons in March.

Envelope with 'ricin' sent to White House
According to Mayo Clinic, Ricin is poisonous and can be produced from the waste that results from processing castor beans. Investigators believe the package was sent from Canada and have identified a woman as a suspect, the newspaper reported .

Tournament selection date: April 25.

Men's and women's soccer's regular season will begin on February 3 and end on April 24.

The council also adopted emergency legislation altering the rules for each sport's traditional championship (fall) and non-championship (spring) segments.

Fall championships slated to go forward in the fall would still count towards a conference's automatic bid, with the ACC, Sun Belt, SEC, Big 12 among the leagues planning to play in the fall. If health conditions allow for spring competition, the regular season would start in late February.

The NCAA additionally said the competition oversight committee will continue to study cross country, after concerns were raised over conducting cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field in the spring term.
