Sports To Resume At JCC In February
December 11, 2020


Jamestown County Community College plans to resume intercollegiate athletic competition in February 2021.

Men’s and women’s basketball, swimming and diving, and wrestling contests will be held, adhering to federal, state and local guidelines regarding COVID-19, said George Sisson, JCC’s athletics and recreation director.

“Building on the success we have established with mitigating risk during the fall semester, we feel we can move forward in providing a safe, meaningful, and worthwhile opportunity for our student-athletes,” noted Sisson.

Tools for determining a safe return to play included the New York State Supplemental Guidance for Athletics at Higher Education Institutions during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency document, successful participation in multiple sports by area National Collegiate Athletic Association and United States Collegiate Athletic Association schools, and preseason practices and workouts held on JCC’s Jamestown Campus during the fall semester.

Baseball, golf, softball, and women’s soccer are on track to begin competition in March, Sisson added. Earlier in the year, the National Junior College Athletic Association board of regents voted that all 2020-21 NJCAA sport seasons (fall, winter, and spring) would not count toward student-athlete eligibility.​
