The Riverhawks championship mentality and execution takes our student athletes to the next level once they leave UCC. Many RiverHawks go on to be successful in university athletic and academic programs while maintaining a firm grounding in giving back to the community.

Apply to UCC

One of the first steps on the road to playing with the Riverhawks is applying to the College. It's free to apply. Plus, it let's the academic staff know that you are interested in attending here.
