The College of Charleston is an NCAA Division I university in the Colonial Athletic Association.

For the more than 300 student-athletes that make up the College of Charleston’s 19 varsity sports teams, each season is a promise of great things: the thrill of competition, the transformation of pain and hard work into success and glory – the kind of glory you only feel after sinking that 30-foot putt, crushing a kick into the back of the net, stroking a cross-court winner, connecting for a walk-off home run or draining a buzzer-beating three.

Our teams are in the pursuit of greatness – of claiming more conference championships, of playing in more national tournaments, of reaching the Big Dance and the College World Series and winning more national titles.

Look into our eyes and you’ll see it. There’s an undeniable hunger in being a Cougar. Our opponents certainly see it … feel it … bend to it. Because opposing teams know all too well when they face the College of Charleston, whether it’s on the hard court or on open water: Cougars don’t just compete. They fight. Hard.

We wear many masks because we are many things: we’re giant killers, we’re underdogs, we’re Cinderella stories, we’re favorites, we’re the team with a big target on our backs. We are all that and much more.

As a fan or a student-athlete, come be a part of our never-ending quest for championships. Come be a part of the excitement and power that is College of Charleston Athletics. You won’t be sorry.
