Only eight of the schools have football: Butler, Coffeyville, Dodge City, Fort Scott, Garden City, Hutchinson, Highland and Independence. The conference is not divided into divisions for football.[1]

The regular-season champion is considered the Jayhawk Conference champion while the playoff champion is considered the Region VI champion.

Division I vs. Division II

KJCCC members can choose to compete in either NJCAA Division I or Division II in any sport (Except football, which does not have a Division II). All members compete in Division I in baseball but other sports are split.

The majority of schools are Division II in volleyball and softball. In these sports, the Western Division consists of the Division I schools while the Eastern Division consists of those choosing to play Division II. This results in an unbalanced alignment. This season (2010), KJCCC softball has 14 members playing softball in the Eastern Division and only 5 in the Western Division.

In men's and women's basketball, only Johnson County, Fort Scott, Kansas City Kansas and Highland currently play Division II. Beginning with the 2013-14 season, those four schools will compete in a separate division (Tentatively called "East Division II"). Butler will move from the Western Division to the Eastern Division to help balance out the divisions.
