NJCAA announced its updated plan of action for the 2020-21 academic year

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – All close-contact sports will be moved from the fall to the spring semester this year, the National Junior College Athletic Association announced on Monday following a Board of Regents vote. 

NJCAA football, men’s and women’s soccer, and volleyball will flip seasons to the spring, while cross country will remain in the fall.

All winter sports will begin in January, including men’s and women’s basketball. The majority of championships will be moved from March to April, while indoor track and field championships will be held at the beginning of March.

The spring sports season was tweaked the least, as minor adjustments were changed to dates, including baseball, softball, men’s and women’s golf, and track & field.
