Tri-C Postpones Athletics Until Fall 2022
Campus recreation centers will reopen for classes later this year
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) is postponing all Triceratops interscholastic athletic programs until fall 2022.
The decision was reached after careful consideration of the estimated timeline for achieving widespread immunity to COVID-19, as athletic programs require student-athletes and coaches to remain in close proximity to one another for extended periods of time
Tri-C is among several Ohio Community College Athletic Conference schools to suspend its athletic programs for some or all of the 2021-2022 academic year.
During the hiatus, the College will rebuild and consolidate its athletic programs under the guidance of a Collegewide athletics director. The College will begin a search to fill the newly created position later this spring.
Campus recreation centers will reopen in the fall for physical education classes, sports and exercise science classes, and some student engagement activities. The partial reopening will include protocols to ensure the safety of students, instructors and staff.
Recreation centers will not be open to the public, and all campus swimming pools will remain closed until further notice.
As the number of vaccinated individuals increases and COVID-19 cases decline, the College looks forward to resuming cocurricular activities and restarting Triceratops athletics in 2022.
