About Us

The Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference exists to govern and conduct championships for the conference's 16 varsity sports. Chartered in the late 1960's, the conference is composed of 16 Maryland community colleges competing in a variety of varsity intercollegiate athletics.

Each season the MD JUCO verifies the eligibility of all its student-athletes, schedules and statistics for statewide competition. To help foster the best academic and athletic experience for student-athletes, the MD JUCO relies heavily on the work of its sports liaisons, coaches associations and the MD JUCO Advisory Council.

The MD JUCO does not coordinate NJCAA national or regional statistics or schedules. Visit www.njcaa.org for national standings, schedules and statistics. For information regarding updating national statistics, consult your athletic director.
