Jayhawk Conference Unifies in Historic Vote

Brock Kappelmann - October 21, 2016 6:02 am

The Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference (KJCCC) held a special meeting October 20th to address roster and scholarship limitations. The meeting resulted in two bylaw changes.

Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, the KJCCC will be comprised of institutions competing at the NJCAA Division I and Division II levels and will follow NJCAA roster limits for all participating sports. This change removes previous KJCCC out-of-state and roster size limitations.

The KJCCC also passed scholarship changes to begin with the 2018-2019 academic year. These changes align with NJCAA guidelines. If a new bylaw is not passed related to scholarship limitations at the April 2017 KJCCC meeting, then beginning with the 2020 academic year, the bylaw would revert back to the current KJCCC scholarship limitations.

Dr. Mike Calvert, president of KJCCC, stated “The meeting consisted of positive dialogue that resulted in unanimous support, proving that the conference is united and moving forward together.”

Both bylaw changes were passed unanimously.
