As athletic director at KCC, I am very proud to be a part of such a winning tradition. I am equally pleased to be associated with the student-athletes who work as hard in the classroom as they do in their respective sports.
I have been fortunate to have played in the National Football League, winning two world championships. But earning my degree was one of the most important achievements of my life. Here at KCC, we believe our sports teams are an extension of the classroom and that—through competition—our athletes will learn valuable life lessons.
About KCC athletics
KCC offers intercollegiate men's basketball, women's basketball, baseball, softball, men's soccer and volleyball.
The Cavaliers compete in Region IV of the NJCAA, which includes colleges in Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan. Each team also plays against teams from a number of other states across the country. KCC’s athletic programs are open to students enrolled in 12 or more credit hours who meet NJCAA eligibility requirements.
KCC does not charge recruitment fees for any of its college sports and is not affiliated with any third-party recruiters. Only KCC coaches are able to give scholarships, recruit or make athletic commitments.
KCC follows all NJCAA regulations regarding international student athletes.
KCC's basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball and soccer head coaches may recruit international students to play for their teams. Division I & II coaches may offer a tuition waiver for their athletes, though it is not guaranteed.
If you are a prospective international student, please visit KCC's international student page to learn more about enrolling at KCC.
Equity in Athletics
Any coeducational institution of higher education that participates in a federal student aid program and has an intercollegiate athletics program is required to publish an annual Equity in Athletics report.
This report is available on the United States Department of Education's Office of Post Secondary Education webpage. Once on the site, type in Kankakee Community College as the "Name of the Institution." This report contains participation rates, financial support, and other information on men's and women's intercollegiate athletic programs.
The college also maintains a Right to Know and College Disclosures page. Hard copies of this report may be available upon request.
