The National Junior College Athletic Association has made a decision in regards to spring sports competition at this time.
- The NJCAA sent out a statement on Friday:
- "As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation as it impacts our member colleges, the NJCAA has made the decision to suspend all spring competition through Friday, April 3rd along with the postponement of basketball championships until April 20th.
- "The NJCAA is also extending the hardship season competition ruling to 60%- should teams cancel their season before the limit is reached. Student-athletes will not be charged a year of eligibility for the 2020-21 season. The NJCAA is also looking at increasing its allowable number of letters of intent which will be vetted by the eligibility committee.
- "Our goal is to look after the safety and security of all involved, while also still providing a pathway to allow opportunities for our student-athletes and the ability to compete for a National Championship."
- The situation will continued to be monitored.
"This ruling is in the best interests of our students and student-athletes," Jim Monaco, Pima's Interim Athletic Director said.
