In addition to preparing students for success through academic endeavors, Pitt Community College features an intercollegiate athletics department that is committed to educating and empowering student-athletics for success in life, higher education and the workforce by emphasizing teamwork, character and sportsmanship.
Pitt Community College fields intercollegiate athletic teams in Baseball, Men’s Basketball, Softball and Court Volleyball that compete in Region Ten of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
Pitt Community College believes that athletic participation is a privilege and seeks to provide an environment. Student-athletes not only represent themselves and their families, they represent Pitt Community College and we strive for each student-athlete to embrace the responsibility that role entails and carry that label with pride and dignity.
Pitt Community College athletes must abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the Department of Athletics and its coaching staff and are subject to all rules governing the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and Region Ten in which we participate. Student-athletes must maintain a minimum grade point average, which meets or exceeds the NJCAA requirements for participation as well as guidelines set forth by the Athletic Department and Pitt Community College. PCC Athletics is committed to providing the best opportunities for our student-athletes that will allow individual growth and team success as well as create opportunities.
