CCU Cougar Logo

Colorado Christian University is an NCAA Division II college in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC), one of the largest and most competitive conferences in the nation.

"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever." – 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 (NIV)

At CCU, we play to win. But every time we compete, we play to honor Jesus Christ — our audience of One.

As an NCAA Division II university, our hope for our athletes is for "Every athlete to be provided the opportunity to know God and to make Him known, while having a great experience competing as a Division II athlete." Our mission is to empower student-athletes to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and athletically through relational mentoring, discipleship, academic support, and athletic excellence.
