ECC Women's Soccer Makes History

In 2021, and for the first time in 12 years, ECC's Women's Soccer won the Regional Championship this past spring, going undefeated in regional play. They then made history and became the first team in their program to compete at the NJCAA Division III National Championship in Newark, New Jersey.

Athletic Department Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a positive competitive environment for student-athletes, where ECC will challenge them to grow physically, mentally, and socially so that they are prepared to be successful in their next stage of life. We will do this by building Character and Life Skills at all times.

ECC is a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), Region 4, and the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference member. Post-season play in NJCAA Region 4 leads to the national competition.

The ACE Program for Student-Athletes

The Athletes Commit to Excellence (ACE) program is an academic monitoring program that helps student-athletes learn the necessary skills to help them succeed. In the ACE program, each sports team meets with the athletic director and staff early in the semester. During this meeting, they outline the program requirements and provide helpful information on educational success. The program aims for each student-athlete to achieve academic, athletic, and personal success by learning life skills that will be a foundation for their future successes.

Are you interested in joining a great team?

As a student-athlete at ECC, you'll learn to lead, work with a team, and persist toward a common goal. Off the field, we'll help you build your time management and study skills and become a successful college student. Many of our student-athletes compete at four-year institutions nationwide, including Wake Forest, Coastal Carolina, and Kent State. Just fill out the form to qualify.
