In alliance with the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), officials at Tompkins Cortland Community College have announced major changes to athletics schedules due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Typically occur during the Fall semester, the men’s soccer, women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball seasons have all been postponed until the Spring.
Additionally, basketball seasons – which typically start during the fall semester and continue into the spring – will now be held entirely in the spring semester.
“From the moment we ended the spring seasons back in March, we have been anxiously working on getting our student-athletes back to campus and back competing. And while it is disappointing that we have had to alter our schedules, we are excited that our student-athletes will be back on campus and working with their coaches and teammates this fall,” said Mick McDaniel, Director of Athletics at Tompkins Cortland.
The College’s Athletics Department has been planning for the safe return of student-athletes to campus.
McDaniel and his staff will hold meetings with student-athletes and their families to provide details about physicals, testing, and schedules, as well as provide the opportunity to ask questions.
