At Clearwater Christian College, we offer men's and women's sports that compete on regional and national levels. As a result, the athletic program is
an integral part of campus student life. No matter the season, there is always a game to be found somewhere; whether on the field, court, ballpark, or
Our teams practice hard and compete to win as members of the South Region of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA), Division II.
While we strive for excellence in all of our athletic programs, we do not believe that winning is our chief goal.
The underlying focus of our athletic program is not the competition itself. We offer a competitive schedule that is intended to bring out the best in
every athlete; however, our main desire at Clearwater Christian College is to bring honor to Christ. At CCC, we see our athletic program as a perfect

It's a good parallel to the cause of Christ
and the resources He gives us in our challenges during this earthly race. Like our fellow Christians, we are all pursuing the same goal--to
glorify Christ in all we do. Playing college soccer has been challenging, but the rewards are so evident and to be part of something that
you could never achieve on your own is a privilege that I hope many others come to enjoy in their college experience.
