GOVERNING AUTHORITIES

Barstow Community College is a good standing member 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. 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 Foothill Conference 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).

A majority of student athletes that participate 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).
