LCC cancels basketball and volleyball seasons

LANSING, Mich. – Lansing Community College has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 basketball and volleyball seasons.

As COVID-19 continues to rage across our state and nation, we found no reasonable avenues to make indoor sports safe for our student-athletes, coaches, or families.

We understand that this decision is disappointing to our LCC community and beyond,” said LCC President Steve Robinson. “We must remain vigilant in our quest to keep our students safe and healthy.”

 

LCC considered delaying the decision in hopes that there might be some turnaround, but with the latest COVID-19 restrictions reissued by the MDHHS taking effect Monday, Dec. 21 through Jan. 15, 2021, it seems unlikely that indoor sports could resume safely.

Student-athletes’ scholarship dollars will not be impacted.

The spring 2021 semester which begins Jan. 11, will offer mostly online classes, with select face-to-face and hybrid options available.

We encourage our LCC community to remain hopeful and continue to practice safety measures like wearing a mask, hand hygiene, physical distancing, and avoiding gatherings to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
