The presidents of the South Coast Conference Colleges made the decision to suspend athletic competition for traditional spring sports for the 2021 season, it was announced February 25.
To ensure El Camino College student athletes remain in shape and ready when competition does return, the college is returning athletes to campus for conditioning purposes, March 10. Conditioning will occur outside only and the athletic department will implement social distancing guidelines recommended by the California Department of Public Health. Equipment will not be shared.
“We realize that maintaining optimal athletic stamina is critical to the future performance of our student athletes,” said El Camino College President Dena P. Maloney. “By implementing stringent and proven safety measures we can offer student athletes the opportunity to strengthen their abilities and be ready when they do compete.”
“At this time we are excited to have our student athletes get back on campus for conditioning,” said ECC Athletic Director Colin Preston. “It is the first step that is needed in the process to return to what our student athletes love to do; practicing and competing. We will continue to evaluate the current trends in Los Angeles County and will be prepared for the next steps.”
Sports returning to campus for conditioning include badminton, baseball, women’s basketball, football, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swim and dive, men’s and women’s track and field / cross country, and men’s and women’s volleyball.
