JCC sports seasons

Some important news came out Monday that affects the fall sports season at Jefferson Community College and other junior colleges.

The NJCAA held an emergency board meeting to vote on a proposal that would shift the seasons of fall and winter sports due to COVID-19. The proposal passed.

Men’s and women’s basketball will now start with practices on January 11 with the season starting January 29. The regular season would end March 27 and championships would begin April 19.

Volleyball would begin with practices also on January 11.

The only sport that could be run in the fall at JCC is cross country.

JCC athletic director Jeff Wiley says the college will have to decide what sports can be run after the first of the year with the number of staff they have.
