MISSION: To provide all student-athletes quality intercollegiate
sports that will complement the college’s instructional programs, enhance student life on campus, and foster
community interest and support.
PHILOSOPHY: The growth of Cuyamaca College sports is to give all
potential student-athletes opportunities to master advanced physical skills, enjoy team
participation, and gain benefits of vigorous physical competition.
Student-athletes should gain rewards from playing sports that transfer to later
life such as an appreciation for social diversity, increased leadership
abilities, and the achievement of success through hard work.
The connections of academic achievement and athletic performance
must be a caring and responsible
service given by all coaches and support staff. Facilitating institutional goals
towards higher rates of 4-year transfers should be a cornerstone in maintaining athletic eligibility for
Cuyamaca athletes. The college should also benefit from the increase in
full-time students that a sports program provides.
Intercollegiate sports at Cuyamaca create a student-centered
campus, build school spirit and encourage spectator support by staff, families,
friends and the community. Athletic events afford participants and fans a chance
to use the beautiful facilities and to visit the campus.
Cuyamaca College Athletics is under the governance of the
California Community College Commission on Athletics, the Pacific Coast
Conference, the GCCCD, and Cuyamaca College. Athletic policies and procedures
are developed and maintained to support these governing institutions, their
rules and regulations.
