BARSTOW COMMUNITY COLLEGE INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS

SPORTS

The intercollegiate athletic program at Barstow Community College consists of a combined 4 men’s and women’s varsity sport teams including baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, and women's softball.

GOALS

It is the goal of the Barstow Community College Intercollegiate Athletics Program to represent the best interests of the educational mission of Barstow Community College, as well as the many communities of greater Barstow and the High Desert region in spirited athletic competition with other community colleges, providing competitive opportunities for both men and women students in a wide variety of sporting endeavors.

It is also the goal of the intercollegiate athletic program to:

1. Ensure all student-athletes are given maximum opportunity and support for achieving their academic goals;

2. Provide the best possible environment to enable each student-athlete to compete to the fullest extent of his or her capabilities;

3. Establish support systems enabling student-athletes to develop into well-rounded, responsible, successful and mature individuals; and

4. Encourage student athletes to assume leadership roles both on campus and in the community.

GOVERNING AUTHORITIES

Barstow Community College is a member in good standing of the Community College League of California’s Commission on Athletics (COA). As authorized by the state legislature, the Education Code provides the COA with the authority to establish the rules and regulations to administrate the intercollegiate athletic activities of the California Community Colleges.

The California Community College system, which is composed of 72 districts and 108 campus sites, annually enrolls nearly 2.9 million students and employs over 70,000 citizens of the state. Nearly 25,000 student athletes participate annually in intercollegiate athletics at California’s Community Colleges and the COA oversees nearly 100 regional and state-final events that produce champions in 20 men’s and women’s sports each year.

Barstow Community College is also an affiliated member of the Foothill Conference, which provides league competition for the program. Along with the Vikings, the FC includes Antelope Valley College (Lancaster), Chaffey College (Rancho Cucamonga), College of the Desert (Palm Desert), Mt. San Jacinto College (San Jacinto), Rio Hondo College (Whittier), San Bernardino Valley College, and Victor Valley College (Victorville).

It should be noted that a majority of student athletes participating in California Community College programs transfer to a four-year college or university to continue their academic and athletic careers. These students are required to meet the eligibility standards of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and or the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

SEASONS OF SPORT

The Barstow Community College Intercollegiate Athletic Program recognizes two distinctive seasons of sport, which coincide with the semesters of the academic year. The fall sports include men’s and women’s basketball.

The spring sports include baseball and softball. Men’s and women’s basketball is recognized as the one sport that spans the semesters, though the season begins in the fall.

Barstow College has been a strong influence among California Community Colleges for over three decades.  It has always maintained an exceptional faculty and student system that emphasizes attainment of the educational and vocational goals of our students.

Athletics at Barstow College is an important part of the educational process.  The athletic department is committed to providing a variety of inter-collegiate sports that will provide inter-conference, invitational, sectional  and/or state competition.  Barstow College Viking teams have been fortunate to be State and Division Champions in years past and are committed to achieving continuous excellence.
