Sea Devil Code of Conduct

We don’t just raise banners, we RAISE champions

Student-athletes recruited into the CFCC athletics program are extended the privilege of participating in intercollegiate athletics.  This privilege in no way constitutes a right to take part.  In return for the privilege of participating in the intercollegiate athletics program, student-athletes must be willing to accept personal responsibility and/or accountability for their behavior.  Student-athletes have significant responsibilities.  In order to maintain good academic/athletic standing, student-athletes are expected to abide by all CFCC College policies and procedures, CFCC Student Code of Conduct, and follow rules set forth by the CFCC Athletic Department, and ultimately the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).  CFCC student athletes are expected to represent themselves, their team and the College with honesty, integrity, and character whether it be academically, athletically or socially.
