Monaca, PA - Community College of Beaver County (CCBC) announced today the cancellation of intercollegiate competition for the winter season and will not resume play any sooner than April 1, 2021, due to the ongoing global pandemic and the current state of the spread of COVID-19 both in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and in Beaver County. This decision directly impacts the men’s and women’s basketball programs’ competitive schedules. The women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s cross-country programs will remain on hiatus for the 2020-21 academic year.
“With our Region XX partners, we have considered a number of scenarios regarding the feasibility of competing in NJCAA sports. Together, our institutional leadership has determined that cancelling our winter sports season is necessary to do our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our student-athletes and larger community safe by abiding by the best practices and recommendations of the Commonwealth and CDC,” said Colin Sisk, CCBC Director of Student Life and Athletic Administration.
CCBC’s head coaches and athletics administrators are working closely together on opportunities to provide an enriched, fulfilling experience for our Titan student-athletes, including conditioning workouts and practices with their coaches under guidance developed in consultation with Region XX and other peer institutions.
Looking forward to the 2021-22 season, the NJCAA determined that any student-athlete who remains enrolled in good academic standing at an institution, whether they competed in a full schedule, partial schedule, or no schedule at all, would not be charged with a year of intercollegiate eligibility for their sport this academic calendar year (Fall 2020-Spring 2021). Also, they may compete next season, even if this year would have been their second and final year of junior college eligibility.
