HACC Suspends Athletic Programs for Fall 2020

HARRISBURG, Pa. - HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, has made the decision to suspend all athletic programs for the fall 2020 semester as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. 

“We are saddened to temporarily suspend our athletic programs, but we believe it is the right decision to protect the health and safety of HACC students and employees,” said John J. “Ski” Sygielski, Ed.D., MBA, HACC’s president and CEO. “This decision was made based on careful consideration of the current situation and risks posed by COVID-19. HACC’s campuses will be closed until at least Dec. 31, 2020, and under those circumstances, we are unable to provide space for athletic programs to practice and host games.”

This suspension will impact the following sports offered at HACC:
  • Golf  
  • Men’s and women’s basketball
  • Men’s and women’s cross country 
  • Men’s and women’s soccer
  • Women’s volleyball
As part of the suspension, three full-time employees in the Athletics Department will be furloughed until further notice. The College also employs 11 part-time coaches. HACC recognizes these employees’ dedication and commitment to our students, the success of the programs and the College. 

Students and employees were notified of the decision on July 9, 2020. 

Additional information regarding this issue is available at and in the College’s online newsroom:
