BRIEF: Sports on hold until 2021

The California Community College Athletics Association (CCCAA) Board of Directors approved the implementation of the Contingency Plan (Plan D) for the return of athletics in the 2020-21 school year.

All sports will be held in 2021 with basketball, cross country, football, women’s golf, soccer, women’s volleyball, water polo and wrestling taking place from February to April.

Badminton, baseball, beach volleyball, men’s golf, softball, swim and dive, tennis, track and field and men’s volleyball will start their seasons in April and end in June.

“I know I speak for the entire CCCAA Board that moving Fall athletics to Spring 2021 is a huge disappointment,” said Dr. Erika Endrijonas, Board Chair and President of Pasadena City College in the press release. “However, the need to keep our student-athletes and the amazing coaches and athletic trainers who work with them safe was simply the only option available with the virus spiraling out of control across the state.”

The Board of Directors will meet on July 17 to discuss more regarding their decision.
