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 soccer in college is such a gift that God has given me. I love playing soccer. Even before Christ saved me, soccer was my escape when things were rough in my life. It was everything to me. But now that God has so gloriously captivated my life, He's letting me use my love for soccer to help me love Him more. I always think ahead to the future, and I just know that some of my best college memories will be from playing. God has also taught me so much through playing. Probably the biggest thing being, to just step back and realize that every game could be of eternal significance, if I would just play it that way. To play for Him. Lessons, life long friendships, and good times.
