Camden County College is pleased to announce the return of athletic competition for the Spring 2021 semester.
In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated the tough but necessary decision to suspend athletic competition for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. Since that time, CCC has been exploring ways for student-athletes to return to competition in a healthy and safe atmosphere.
Currently, the programs are returning are Basketball, Men’s Wrestling, Baseball, Softball, Golf, Soccer and Women’s Tennis. Outdoor Track and Field is still to be determined due to the availability to compete at regular season events and Nationals.
Basketball has begun practicing and will tip off a ten-game regular season schedule on March 4. The basketball teams will practice and compete at off campus facilities while the gymnasium serves as the coronavirus vaccination site for Camden County.
Although no regular season wrestling matches have been scheduled at this time, Men’s Wrestling has also begun practicing. Baseball and Softball will begin practicing on February 22. Baseball is slated to toe the rubber on March 17 and Softball on March 30.
Soccer will begin practicing March 1 with their first match scheduled for April 2. Golf and Women’s Tennis should begin practicing mid-March. Our golf program is arranged to tee off at our home facility on March 29 and Women’s Tennis will begin their schedule in April.
CCC is adhering to all federal, state and local guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our student-athletes while providing them an opportunity to participate in athletics. All rostered student-athletes and participating coaches will undergo daily screening and temperature checks.
In addition, NJCAA Region XIX guidelines do not permit any spectators at indoor athletic events. Since fans are prohibited this semester, CCC will attempt to livestream as many events as possible or record events for the athletic YouTube channel.

We are excited to see our student-athletes compete again. Go Cougars!
