Mondo announces partnership with National Junior College Athletics Association
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - Oct. 12, 2022 - PRLog -- Mondo announced that it has signed a three-year partnership agreement with the National Junior College Athletics Association.
"Mondo tracks have been the choice of numerous two-year colleges, so we have extensive experience working with the two-year college athletics community and their track needs," said Latasha, director of marketing and communications, Mondo. "Coaches at two-year colleges with Mondo tracks tell us that having Mondo helps their student-athletes train and perform at their best because Mondo tracks are fast, have good return, and aren't too bouncy. Plus, the athletes love knowing that they are training on the same track that's used at the Olympic Games. That also helps with recruiting."
With this agreement, NJCAA will work closely with Mondo to identify locations with Mondo track surfaces and recruit sites to host NJCAA track and field championships.
Ideal for both training and high-level competition, Mondo tracks are made from rubber and vulcanized to produce a continuous, seamless piece of material that will not separate. Plus, they are durable, nonporous, and bacteria and microbial resistant for the highest level of protection. Hundreds of prestigious track and field competitions have been held on Mondo track surfaces, including numerous NCAA Division I, II and III, junior college and USATF championships, and 320 world records have been set on Mondo' s track surfaces.
The NJCAA serves as the national governing body for two-year college athletics in the United States and is the nation's second-largest national intercollegiate sports organization (second to the NCAA). Each year, over 65,000 student-athletes from over 500 member colleges compete in 28 different sports. In addition, the NJCAA hosts 53 national championship events each year. It is the mission of the NJCAA to foster a national program of athletic participation in an environment that supports equitable opportunities consistent with the educational objectives of member colleges.
