Academic Commitment

The athletic department at Clearwater Christian College is committed to academic excellence. We partner with our student-athletes to make sure they are successful in the classroom, as well as on the playing field. At CCC, we believe that academics come before athletics; our student-athletes must be dedicated and disciplined in order to compete in both arenas.


First-time freshmen are eligible for consideration provided they do not enter under academic probation. All other athletes (transfer and current students) must satisfy the 12-24 Hour Rule. This means the athlete must be enrolled in at least 12 hours each semester while having passed 24 hours in their previous two semesters. In addition, student-athletes must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least a 2.0 to participate on one of our teams.

Cougar Spotlight

Playing basketball at Clearwater has been an amazing opportunity, because I have made so many great memories and great friends by being on the team. God has blessed me by being a part of the women's basketball team, because I get to be involved with a great group of girls that strive to honor and glorify God above all else. Playing basketball is so much fun, but it is also a great way to grow closer to God. The team has devotions every day before practice, and we all get to share with each other what God is doing in our lives. Whether we win or lose, the praise goes to God, and ultimately that is all that matters.
