The Pasadena City College Athletics 2020 Spring Sports season has officially been canceled effective immediately due to the growing concerns over the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S. and the state. This action was taken by the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA), the governing body of state athletics. The PCC baseball, softball, women’s badminton, men’s and women’s track and field, men’s and women’s swim teams seasons and events schedule are canceled due to the ruling and we approve of this decision for the health and safety of all student-athletes, coaches, staff, administrators, and officials during this unfortunate health crisis.

This is the statement from the CCCAA released Mar. 12, 9:25 p.m.:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Due to concerns over COVID-19, the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) Board of Directors voted Thursday to immediately postpone practices outside of regularly scheduled classes, and competition for all spring sports, as well as any and all nontraditional sports seasons, indefinitely.

“It’s important that we look out for the well-being of our student-athletes,” said Keith Curry, Chair of the Board of Directors.

Jennifer Cardone, CCCAA Interim Executive Director, said the Board of Directors understands the effects this will have on student-athletes and said the CCCAA will be working to minimize those impacts to student-athlete eligibility for the CCCAA as well as the four-year college level.

“We regret the effect this has on our outstanding student-athletes and the hard work and dedication they’ve invested in their seasons,” She said. “However, we feel it’s in the best interest of our student-athletes to take this action.”
