The Physical Education/Health Education/Athletics department provides physical courses that fulfill our district and/or college graduation requirements and the foundation courses for those students interested in completing a certification program in Physical Education. We also provide for the general community served by our campus the opportunity to participate in classes for development of skills and knowledge in individual and team sports. In addition, we have the obligation to provide courses that enhance life-long fitness, health, and recreation.
Contra Costa College is committed to promoting academic excellence for all students. Academic success by student athletes is considered more important and valuable to the College than winning records for competitive teams. Thus, the latter may be sacrificed if the former is in jeopardy.
