Tri-C Suspends Fall and Winter Athletics Due to COVID-19

College joins other institutions in canceling seasons given outbreak


CLEVELAND, June 8, 2020:  Due to uncertainties created by the COVID-19 outbreak, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) is suspending fall and winter athletics to safeguard student-athletes, coaches and community spectators.


The risk of spreading COVID-19 during team activities is simply too great. It would be challenging — if not impossible — to implement the precautions and protocols needed to ensure a safe environment during competition, practices and other aspects of athletics.


Tri-C is not alone in its decision. Two of the College’s rivals in the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference — Owens Community College and Sinclair Community College — have also suspended sports for some or all of the 2020-2021 academic year.


Meanwhile, a growing number of colleges and universities across the country that chose to begin fall sports programs are now reporting coronavirus cases among athletes.


Tri-C’s decision sidelines six teams that compete during the fall or winter seasons: women’s basketball, cross country, indoor track and volleyball, plus men’s basketball and soccer.


The College will fulfill its commitment to student-athletes by honoring scholarships and working with them to identify other needed resources in their academic and athletic pursuits.


A decision regarding the 2021 spring sports season will be made in the fall.
