NJCAA cancels spring athletic seasons and National Tournaments

Per the NJCAA:

Following the recent recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the NJCAA has made the decision to cancel all upcoming basketball championships as well as all spring competition, effective immediately.

Spring competition includes all practices, regular season, postseason, and national championship play.

Regarding eligibility for spring sports, no spring sport student-athlete who was enrolled at a member college in 2020 will be charged a year of participation.

Along with the cancellation of competition, all on and off-campus recruiting for all sports will be halted until April 15 with further evaluation to be assessed at that point in time. 

The NJCAA will explore the opportunity to expand allowable Letters of Intent for spring sports for both the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years under the recommendation of the NJCAA Eligibility Committee.
