Broward College has made the decision discontinue its Athletics programs. The College has had an incredible history of participation in collegiate sports since 1962, and it has been a great source of pride. We are proud of our student-athletes, our coaches and staff, and thank them for their commitment to our institution and the community. The discontinuation of the athletics program is part of the 2020-21 budget approved by the Broward College District Board of Trustees on Tuesday, June 30, to reallocate the use of the College's resources to impact all 63,000 students we serve.

Student-athletes who choose to continue their education at Broward College will receive their scholarships for an additional year.  The Athletic Director will remain on staff for one year to assist student-athletes seeking to play sports at another institution.

We know this discontinuation is difficult, and we appreciate your understanding.
