JUCO fall, winter sports delayed for Glendale CC, county schools

Posted

Following the lead of the National Junior College Athletic Association, the Maricopa County Community College District announced Thursday that it is pushing fall and winter sports to the spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. No in-person athletic activity is allowed until January.

The decision was made after recent community forums were held to address public concerns. The district’s 10 college presidents had recommended to suspend sports for the entire 2020-21 school year.

“The forums provided a space for our students, coaching staff, employees and community members to voice their concerns and share suggestions on the state of the 2020-2021 Intercollegiate Athletics Season,” Interim Chancellor Dr. Steven Gonzalesin said in an email sent to the schools.

Men’s and women’s basketball are scheduled to begin Jan. 11, with soccer programs set to get underway in mid-March.
