The Ultimate Goal


Wildcat Teams

We offer a comprehensive athletic program with 10 collegiate sports to fit the athletic interests of our student body. We also anticipate adding a women's softball program and a men's soccer program in the near future.



What West Has to Offer

Committed to Student Athletes

Our quality coaches and programs will challenge your skills and help you improve as a student and an athlete. Academics are the number one priority of our department with an eye on graduation and transfer to a four-year college or university following a successful career at West.


Academic Support & Medical Staff

We provide outstanding student-athlete support systems with academic guidance from a full time athletic-academic counselor. In addition, our staff includes two full-time equipment and facilities attendants, and eligibility clerk, and an athletic department secretary. Student-athletes' sport medicine needs are handled by a National Athletic Trainers Association certified athletic trainer and several student trainers as well as a group of team medical doctors from Kerlan-Jobe, a renowned LA orthopaedic group.


Outstanding Facilities

Our facilities include quality weight and strength equipment, a gym with two full size courts for basketball and volleyball, a nine lane all-weather running track, artificial turf football/soccer field, and more. Our facilities will be further improved with new construction beginning in the fall of 2010 on a football grandstand; new softball, soccer and baseball fields; and a new Allied Health and Wellness building that will include a weight rooms, offices, classrooms, locker rooms, an Olympic outdoor swimming pool, athletic training room, and team meeting rooms.
