On January 31st, school officials announced that an esports team would be launched at Jefferson Community College. The team will compete against other NJCAAE schools starting this coming August.
“We’ll be like the fourth or fifth school within our conference that will participate in esports,” said JCC’s Director of Athletics Jeff Wiley. “I think you’re going to see a lot more student-athletes on our campus.”
JCC is currently making renovations to its gaming lab to support the esports team. The venue is located on the top floor of the school’s Jules Center.
Jefferson Community college is a higher education institution located in Watertown, New York. The school was first established in 1967.
