Athletics Return to Lehigh Carbon Community College

published Wednesday, May 26, 2021
Schnecksville, Pa., May 26, 2021 – After a year-long hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, athletics at Lehigh Carbon Community College will return in the fall 2021 semester, allowing both men’s and women’s soccer teams to compete.
 
Team members are currently being recruited for both men’s and women’s teams. Student athletes must be enrolled at LCCC full time and maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA, but there is no GPA requirement for 2021 high school graduates.
 
Athletic director Andrew Johnson, Jr., emphasizes that prior competitive experience isn’t required but is preferred. Student athletes will be able to use the athletic and fitness facilities in Berrier Hall and will have access to a professional athletic trainer through the college’s partnership with St. Luke’s University Health Network.
 
The LCCC teams are members of region XIX of the National Junior College Athletic Association and compete in the Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference.
 
Practices for men’s and women’s soccer start in mid-August with the first game scheduled for Sept. 14.
 
Johnson said he anticipates that the winter 2021-22 season will see a return of men’s and women’s basketball beginning in October 2021, and the spring 2022 semester will see competition for baseball, softball and golf teams.
