Deadline day set for Corsairs, CCCAA sports

By Ray Hamill — November will be a big month for College of the Redwoods sports, with a huge decision looming.

It was announced on Wednesday that the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) will meet on November 6 to discuss the fate of the association’s fall and winter sports schedules, which are currently tentatively set to begin in January.

A final decision is expected on November 25.

In the midst of COVID-19, back in July the CCCAA voted to push back the fall and winter sports to the new year, with the spring sports seasons slated to begin in early April and run through late June.

For CR, that means cross country, soccer, volleyball and basketball would start pre-season practice in mid January with games beginning in February.

If the CCCAA does not give the go-ahead in November, however, a new date will be set for the spring sports.

Corsairs continue to lead the way

The Corsairs are trendsetters.

The CCCAA said on Wednesday that by next week there will a total of 54 community colleges in California holding some type of restricted in-person conditioning/skills classes for their student athletes, following the lead of CR and a select few.

The Corsairs were among just 15 of the 100-plus community colleges in the state to begin their own conditioning/skills classes earlier this month.

And with things going smoothly through the opening few weeks, much of the rest of the state is now ready to follow their lead.
