Johnston Community College strives to provide a competitive athletic program that is consistent with the College's mission and a total educational experience for its student athletes.
The underlying assumption that athletics contributes to the overall development of character, sportsmanship, leadership, integrity and responsible decision-making is consistent with the College's mission to assist all students in developing their full potential for participation in a global workforce and lifelong learning experiences. Jaguars win in the classroom and on the field.
The athletic program, at all times, adheres to the tenets of fair play and amateur athletic competition as defined by National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
The College also holds its coaches, administrators, and student athletes to a high standard of sportsmanship and ethical conduct. The College competes in Region X and offers men's Division III basketball, and women's Division II basketball. Men's and women's golf compete in Division II.
