Junior Colleges with Women’s Track and Field Programs

The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) governs all Junior College athletic programs. These two-year institutions give student-athletes a chance to develop academically and athletically in a post-high school program before transferring to a four-year institution. Plus, junior college track programs offer athletic scholarships, making them among the most cost-effective options at any collegiate level. Here are a few reasons student-athletes pick JUCO track and field schools:

  • To play at the highest level. Top JUCO colleges are considered feeder schools for NCAA D1 and D2 programs. These coaches might fill empty roster spots on their current teams, including those created by injuries or academic ineligibility, with junior college track student-athletes who are more developed than high school students.
  • Time to develop. JUCO track and field schools are a great option for student-athletes who need more time to improve their athletic or academic performance. It offers a chance to work on your eligibility, cross off some core classes, and boost your athletic ability before moving on to a competitive NCAA or NAIA program.
  • Cost effective. Many junior college track programs offer athletic scholarships at the D1 level and are generally more affordable than four-year programs. When combining athletic, academic and financial aid, it’s not unheard of for some student-athletes to receive full rides for one or both years, potentially saving thousands before pursuing a four-year degree.

How many women’s JUCO track and field schools are there?

There are 272 women’s junior college track and field programs in the U.S. Several of these schools include a mix of indoor and outdoor track and cross-country programs, while some may only compete during the indoor or outdoor seasons. NJCAA track and field operates at the Division 1 and Division 3 levels.  Athletic scholarships are only available at the D1 level.

Check out the NJCAA Women’s Track & Field Teams page for a complete list of JUCO track and field schools with indoor and outdoor programs.
