The Central Valley Conference announced today the difficult decision to suspend all athletic competition for Fall 2020. Fresno City College is one of the colleges in the conference that will comply with this decision. This decision was made as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on our community and nation. (The official statement is below.)
Athletics at FCC is an integral aspect of college life for our students and our community. This decision was made in an effort to keep our student athletes, staff and community members safe. Other Fresno City College services and educational programs are primarily online in the fall, with limited on-campus interaction.
“The COVID-19 virus has impacted all aspects of our life. We continue to work with faculty, staff and county public health officials in an effort to support opportunities for our coaches and students to continue focusing on conditioning and academics,” said Dr. Carole Goldsmith, Fresno City College President.
This decision will affect ten teams in nine sports at Fresno City College: football, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, wrestling, men’s and women’s cross country, water polo and men’s and women’s basketball.
