We are the proud home of 12 consecutive Coast Conference All-Sports trophies – awarded to the top athletic program in the region. Varsity teams compete in eight sports for men: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, soccer, swimming and diving, track and field, and water polo. The eight sports for women include badminton, basketball, cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, track and field, volleyball and water polo.
All entering students have two years of eligibility at the community college level and must be enrolled in 12 units while competing. Nine of those units must be attempted in courses that are consistent with the student-athlete's educational plan. Most athletic programs follow a yearlong calendar of conditioning, training and competition. The Athletics Department offers dedicated full-time support staff members; special academic cohorts including REACH (Reading, English, Athletics, Counseling and Humanities) and FAST (Football Academic Success Team); and leadership development opportunities in the Student- Athlete Advisory Council. Information about each program and coach can be found on the Athletics Department website.
