The Clackamas Community College women's soccer team is in its 15th season as a program and have achieved unrivaled success in that span. Since the program's inception in 2002, the Lady Cougars have accumulated a record of 169-24- 42 (W-L-T), made four Northwest Athletics Conference Championship appearances winning three league titles, 8 final four appearances, 8 Southern Region Championships, produced 56 NWAC all-stars, 7 Southern Region MVP's, 3 NWAC tournament MVP's, 3 NWAC Coach of the Year awards, 5 Southern Region Coach of the Year awards, 25 players named to the NWAC Sophomore All Academic team, 1 Thriftway Scholar Athlete and 4 NWAC Academic Leadership awards.
The Cougars have made a playoff berth in 12 of the past 14 years of the program's existence and have continued to promote players to the next level. The Cougars also excel in the classroom. Over the past 14 seasons, 30 Cougars were named to the NWAC All-Academic Team (an honor bestowed to qualified sophomores). The program promotes excellence in the classroom by having mandatory study hall with tutors as well as being one of a few NWAC schools to have a dedicated academic advisor (PJ Martineau) who sets up educational plans for each student-athlete and tracks their development throughout each term at CCC.
The program also promotes involvement in the community with volunteer work. The Cougars are involved with Top Soccer, which teaches children with disabilities how to play soccer. The players also have participated in an ASL walkathon, community soccer clinics and camps, the Susan G. Koman for the Cure Walk as well as fundraising throughout the community.
