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

God has given me the opportunity to play both basketball and volleyball here at CCC, and I am so thankful! The girls I've had the privilege to play sports with are my closest friends. Every day before practice, we share prayer requests, praises, or a passage from God's Word. It's awesome being challenged by my own teammates to grow more Christ-like through playing basketball and volleyball. I will never forget the memories I've made and the blessings I've received while playing sports.
