NRCC Student Activities will offer a men’s baseball team and women’s softball team during the 2012-2013 academic year. Club sports in basketball, volleyball, soccer and cheerleading are being discontinued. I look forward to building the two sports we will offer this year through our affiliation with the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). Ben Kramer, Student Activities Counselor
