After careful consideration and many conversations with our student-athletes and coaching staff, the women’s basketball, men’s basketball and women’s volleyball intercollegiate teams have opted to participate in the scrimmage/alternate season as outlined by the NJCAA.

“The NJCAA Board of Regents met Tuesday, January 19, 2021 to pass necessary adjustments for sports during the spring 2021 semester in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The changes affect national tournaments for Division III men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and volleyball, and a scrimmage/alternate season allowance.
The NJCAA will not host national championships in the sports of DIII men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and volleyball during the 2020-21 academic year. With the 2020-21 seasons permitted to begin competition this week, less than 20% of the Division III men’s basketball, women’s basketball, or volleyball programs expressed an intent to participate.  After discussions with the National Office, on behalf of the remaining teams, region leaders voted to cancel the national championship events in these sports and conclude postseason competition at the regional level.”

Scrimmage / Alternate Season

“Member colleges who are not participating during the spring 2021 competition season in the sports of men’s basketball, women’s basketball, volleyball, men’s bowling, women’s bowling, and wrestling will have the opportunity to compete in a scrimmage/alternate season during the spring 2021 semester.  Teams must opt-in to participate in the scrimmage/alternate season and opt-out of their respective NJCAA competitive season prior to their first competition by communicating with the NJCAA National Office.

The scrimmage/alternate season may begin on April 12, 2021, and must conclude by the member college’s last day of finals or May 22, 2021, whichever comes first.  Teams will be permitted eight (8) hours of contact per week, including scrimmages.  Teams will be permitted to participate in five (5) scrimmages against outside competition.  Scrimmages are limited to no more than two (2) outside opponents.  Student-athletes must be enrolled in a minimum of one (1) credit hour and have a valid physical on file to compete in a scrimmage.”
