The Eastern Cincinnati Conference is one of the premier athletic and academic conferences in Ohio.  The ECC is comprised of Anderson, Kings, Loveland, Milford, Turpin, Walnut Hills, West Clermont, and Withrow High Schools.  In addition, Little Miami, Lebanon, and Winton Woods will join the conference in the 2020-2021 school year, making an already tremendous conference even better!

Visit our website often, as updates are done daily.  The "In The News" tab at the top of the page contains links to school-specific stories, while the "Athlete of the Week" tab contains the week's top performers selected by their respective coaches.  Also, check out our Twitter HERE and Facebook HERE pages as well.

One of the things that makes the Eastern Cincinnati Conference special is the member schools' ability to come together as one and support one another - whether it be in times of sorrow, triumph, or sportsmanship and leadership.  This was best exemplified April 12 when the conference held its inaugural ECC Leadership Summit at Kings High School.  The event featured a number of team-building activities.  Guest speakers included UC Athletic Director Mike Bohn, NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz, OHSFCA Hall of Famer Vince Soriano, and Kings football coaches Alex Garvin and Ron Corradini.
