NJCAA Adjusts Sports Seasons

Sports are going to look a little different at St. Clair County Community College and all other colleges that are members of the National Junior College Athletic Association. The NJCAA has announced an adjusted plan of action for the 2020-21 academic year.

According to NJCAA President and CEO, Dr. Christopher Parker, “Through a unified effort from our Presidential Advisory Council, the Board of Regents, and leadership staff, our most recent plan of action provides a path that keeps our student-athletes competing at the highest level with proper safety measures in place. As we move forward as an association, we will continue to provide opportunities for our student-athletes, coaches, and all those involved with the NJCAA to be safe and successful.”

Close-contact fall sports, like soccer and volleyball will move to spring semester. Cross Country will still compete in the fall. Winter sports are expected to begin in January with the Championship seasons moved to March or April. This includes men’s and women’s basketball and bowling. Baseball and softball seasons are expected to remain intact.

SC4 also has affiliation with the Michigan Community College Athletic Association, which supports the move by the NJCAA.
