CCU is an NCAA Division II athletics school and competes in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC), one of the largest and most competitive conferences in the nation. CCU Athletics is also a member of the National Christian College Athletics Association (NCCAA). In recent news, the Cougars advanced to the NCAA basketball national tournament, NCAA golf super regionals, and the NCCAA basketball and baseball national championships. Colorado Christian University Athletics is also a four-time winner of the RMAC Sportsmanship Cup since the award was established in 2006.
At CCU, we place a high value on the academic success of our athletes; our goal is for the average grade point average of our student-athletes to meet or exceed that of the general student body. We also place a high value on the mentoring process and the integration of faith in sport so that in all things, we accomplish our mission: “To glorify God by following his guidance in transforming lives through discipleship, academic accountability, and excellence in intercollegiate athletics.” We represent our University and Jesus Christ well when we perform to a level worthy of our opponents.
Through the challenges of competition, our athletes have the opportunity to develop character traits of courage, discipline, endurance, leadership, teamwork, faith, and dependability. Such traits help prepare our student-athletes to profoundly impact the community.
