The Community College of Rhode Island Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation, an integral part of the curriculum, is dedicated to each individual physical education student and student-athlete by providing a high quality, nationally acclaimed and accredited program which promotes academic and athletic excellence.
The intercollegiate program at the Community College of Rhode Island is an accepted and integral part of the curriculum which produces many benefits difficult to achieve in other areas of education. The coaches of intercollegiate sports often times have greater opportunity to achieve many educational goals by using the athletic fields as an extension of the classroom. Under these circumstances, intercollegiate teams achieve many educational goals because they have the advantage of more time on task and smaller numbers of students who are highly motivated. Intercollegiate competition achieves greater measures of physical fitness, motor skills development, and sound social, emotional and mental attitudes, while pursuing the academic and athletic growth and development of each individual student-athlete. We will excel in sportsmanship, team play and competitive spirit while providing a strong academic foundation.
