Athletic Director's Welcome - Cleveland State Community College - Cleveland State Community College

Athletic Director's Welcome

Dear Student Athlete,

On behalf of the Cleveland State Community College Athletic Department, I would like to welcome you to Cleveland State Athletics.  You are a part of one of the top junior college programs in the country.  Athletes at Cleveland State excel both in the classroom, as well as the playing field or the basketball court.

You have an opportunity to receive your education, as well as participate in intercollegiate athletics.  Our goal for you is to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity.  We are here to support you and help you achieve your academic, athletic goals.  You will find that Cleveland State is dedicated to your academic and athletic success.  Your coaches and the Cleveland State faculty and staff will challenge you to achieve your goals.  The work will be challenging, but the reward will be great.

I encourage you to take advantage of the programs that the college provides to further your development and to attain your degree from Cleveland State.

As an athlete at Cleveland State, you will represent our program not only in competition, but in the classroom and out in the community.  We encourage you to take this responsibility seriously and represent Cleveland State and its athletic program in a way that is reflected in the overall goals of our program.

The next two years will “fly by”; I hope that you enjoy your time at Cleveland State and take advantage of all that Cleveland State has to offer.

I would like to wish you success in all that you do while you attend Cleveland State.


Mike Policastro

Director of Athletics and Campus Recreation
