BRIEF: Athletic events canceled for remainder of semester

The California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) Board of Directors voted unanimously on Thursday to cancel the remainder of the 2020 spring sports season.

According to CCCAA, the spring season of competition for 9,500 student athletes will be restored, provided they have not quit nor been cut from their team prior to the postponement, which was announced on March 12.

“College athletics are facing unprecedented circumstances and we are doing our best to address the concerns that have come about as a result,” Jennifer Cardone, CCCAA Interim Executive Director, said in a press release. “Undoubtedly, it’s a challenging time but student-athletes are at the center of our focus as well as what’s in the best interest of our institutions.”

Face-to-face recruiting and travel are prohibited until April 15, but will be revisited next month.

Nontraditional seasons and practices outside of regularly scheduled classes are also canceled through June 30.
