Concordia College (NY) has the challenge of balancing the benefits derived from competing at the Division II level and maintaining the integrity of the student-athlete. The primary function of our sports program is to provide the student-athlete with an educational, social, and physical experience that closely emulates the mission of the College. The essence of the student-athletes' experience must adhere to the principles of fair play and amateur competition as defined by the NCAA and Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) rules. The welfare of the student-athlete is an essential aspect of the process.
Academic pursuit is the primary purpose of the College. The priorities when coaches recruit students are academic ability, citizenship and athletic talent. The College has chosen to compete at the Division II level to maximize benefits that can be obtained with a successful athletics program. The pressure of having winning teams, producing revenue and receiving wide media exposure are intense, but they are part of the Division II commitment. Successful athletic teams provide local, regional and national publicity that benefit student recruitment, stimulate alumni pride and enhance development.
The Concordia College (NY) Office of Compliance is committed to ensuring that the department as a whole follows the rules set forth by the NCAA, CACC and the institution. The information contained on these pages is provided in an effort to educate staff, community members, current student-athletes and potential student-athletes to this end. The compliance section of this website is divided into three specific areas: Prospective Student-Athletes, Current Student-Athletes and Concordia College Coaches and Staff.
