We know that this has been an incredibly difficult time for all of our student athletes and appreciate how badly everyone wants to return to conditioning, practices, and competition. Unfortunately, the public health conditions in our region and around the state have worsened dramatically in the past several weeks.
As a result, Santa Rosa Junior College has made the very difficult decision to cancel all "Early Spring" sports (including all sports originally scheduled to take place in Fall and Winter seasons of 2020).
At Santa Rosa Junior College, that includes:
- Cross Country, Women’s
- Cross Country, Men’s
- Football Men’s
- Basketball, Women's
- Basketball, Men's
- Volleyball, Women's
- Soccer, Women's
- Soccer, Men's
- Wrestling, Men’s
We remain optimistic that, as public health conditions improve, we will be able to begin resuming activities. College leadership will address resuming in-person training once Sonoma County has progressed out of the “Purple” tier based on the statewide reopening blueprint.
The Big 8 Conference, including Santa Rosa Junior College, has yet to make a decision about the status of late Spring sports and we remain hopeful that the widespread availability of the COVID-19 vaccine will improve conditions to the point where we are able to resume team activities and competition at that time. Santa Rosa Junior College will make a decision about late Spring sports prior to the CCCAA's late February deadline.
We understand how incredibly disappointing this news is to so many of our student athletes, just as it is to our coaches, administrators, and staff. Above all else, Santa Rosa Junior College is committed to keeping our student athletes, coaches, and staff safe and healthy, and look forward to returning to competition as soon as possible.
