Men's Baseball Coaches

Entering the 2013-2014 school year, Coach Rebandt will begin his third season as the head coach at Clearwater Christian College.

CCC is coming off a successful 2013 campaign finishing fourth at the NCCAA DII College World Series. Rebandt picked up his first career coaching win on February 2, 2012 against Northwood University.

"My goal for this program is to see young men develop from the inside out, preparing them for the world beyond college, with Christ being at the center of it all. The game of baseball has many experiences that teach us about life, and it's a great opportunity to bond together as brothers in Christ, while impacting the community around us." At Clearwater, he has coached four All-Region players, two All-Region Honorable Mention players, one All American-Second Team player, and one Scholar-Athlete.

Along with coaching at Clearwater, Josh has spent the 2012 and 2013 summers coaching for the Niagara Power, a summer collegiate baseball team in the New York Collegiate Baseball League. The Power, an affiliate of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, use baseball as a ministry, spreading the Gospel to opponents, kids at camps, and churches through many unique outreach opportunities. He was the Pitching Coach in 2012, as Niagara went on to win the Western Division, falling to the Syracuse Jr. Chiefs of the Eastern Division in the Championship series. Rebandt led a pitching staff that had the second lowest ERA in the NYCBL, producing 3 NYCBL All Stars, 2 NYCBL 1st Team members, and the NYCBL Pitcher of the Year. Rebandt was an assistant coach for the Western Division in the 2012 NYCBL All Star Game. In 2013, Rebandt was promoted as the Head Coach for the Power and was named as one of two managers for the NYCBL All Star Game. Rebandt's team represented Team Second Impact. He coached five Power players that were named to the NYCBL All Star Team, and two that were named to the Second Team-All League.

Coach Rebandt graduated from Brother Rice High School and played for head coach Bob Riker, in Bloomfield Hills, MI. He went on to play at Adrian College for one year before transferring to Clearwater for his final three years. He was a team captain at Clearwater all three seasons.

As a player, his teams saw a lot of success on the field. He played on an MHSAA Division 4 State Championship Runner-Up in 2005 (Southfield Christian HS), an NCAA DIII College World Series team in 2008 (Adrian College), a National American Semi Pro World Series Championship team where he was named the MVP in 2008 (Troy Jet Box), and an NCCAA DII College World Series team that lost in the national championship game in 2011 (Clearwater Christian College).

Josh also serves as a Recruiter in the Admissions Department at Clearwater. He graduated from Clearwater Christian College in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in General Studies. He is the youngest of four children in his family. He has two older brothers, Adam and Jeff, and an older sister, Amy. His oldest brother Adam played professionally in Australia for one season. His parents Ralph and Carol Rebandt live in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Josh resides in Clearwater, Florida.

Coach Taylor is in his third season as an assistant coach for the Cougars as the team starts up to 2013-2014 school year. Jack has been coaching players of various ages for many years. He has a true passion for the Lord, the players, and the game of baseball.
