For the first time in the history of the organization, the NJCAA will host a day dedicated to its member institutions. NJCAA Day will be held on Thursday, Oct. 19 as the national office will celebrate its student-athletes, coaches, staff, alumni, and fans.
To celebrate the first-ever #NJCAADay, official partners of the organization- adidas and Team IP have offered exclusive promotions for a limited time. Team IP has powered the first-ever NJCAA online apparel store and will provide special #NJCAADay promotions. adidas, the official apparel, footwear, and accesory brand of the NJCAA will provide fans with an exclusive offer of 20% off of online purchases along with free shipping using the code NJCAADAY17.
The NJCAA is a proud organization that ensures its student-athletes receive the recognition they deserve, both on and off the playing surfaces. “This is a chance for our members to showcase how great of an organization the NJCAA is,” stated NJCAA Associate Director of Media Relations Ricky Webster. “The NJCAA is one of the premier sport organizations in the United States that is home to some of the top student-athletes in the world. Oct. 19 is a day for our members to highlight all of the great things our organization accomplishes day in and day out.”
NJCAA Day will be an opportunity for NJCAA members and those associated with the institutions to express the pride they have for their school, conference, region, and national affiliation. Student-athletes, coaches, staff, alumni, and fans are encouraged to take to social media using the hashtag #NJCAADay to show off what it means to be a part of the NJCAA. "We want our members and our fans to be as creative as possible when it comes to showing off the great things their institution has to offer," Webster added.
The NJCAA saw great success with its Welcome Back Week campaign in the month of August. With the help of member schools, #NJCAADay has the potential to become a longstanding tradition that focuses on the meaning of being a member of the NJCAA.
Mick McDaniel, president of the NJCAA Executive Committee took to social media to encourage those to participate in the upcoming #NJCAADay.
