After the Big Ten Conference announced a bombshell conference-only football schedule today, the National Junior College Athletic Association announced a recommendation that all member colleges move most fall athletics to the spring semester of 2021.
”The NJCAA Presidential Advisory Council, along with the NJCAA President and NJCAA Board have recommended that a majority of NJCAA competition move to the spring semester of 2021. The organization is finalizing the plans that provide engagement, safety, and regional leadership to support our student-athletes during the fall and spring semesters.
Individual NJCAA regions will discuss the recommended changes prior to the NJCAA Board of Regents Meeting on Monday, July 13 where an official plan of action will be decided. More information will be provided following Monday’s meeting.
We must adjust accordingly to support and sustain NJCAA programs. The association as a whole is collectively working to provide the best opportunities to be successful on and off the field for our student-athletes.
More information will be added as it is received by Mississippi Sports.
