COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The national headquarters of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) announced today that the competitive bid process for hosting 10 of its national championships is officially underway.
The nation’s second largest national collegiate athletic organization with over 500 member colleges, the NJCAA is seeking quality hosts and competitive bids for the championships of women’s basketball (Division II), men’s golf (Division I and Division II), men’s lacrosse, men’s soccer (Division III), women’s tennis (Division III), men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field (Division III) and volleyball (Division II and Division III) set to take place from 2015-16 to 2018-19.
“Our association is stronger today than it has ever been thanks in large part to the great partners we have that host our championship events,” said NJCAA Executive Director Mary Ellen Leicht. “Hosting an NJCAA Championship has many benefits but what is most important to us is that our member colleges and student-athletes get a first-class experience.”
