SWCC is excited to offer its region’s student athletes a chance to continue to compete in the sports that they love, while at the same time developing skills that will make them better employees and coworkers. Students, as part of a sports team, learn the important lessons of working together, dedication, and respect. The athletic program has two primary components. First, under the leadership of Athletic Director Jason Vencill, the college is excited to join the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) and offer scholarship-supported programs in ten sports. Those sports include: wrestling, basketball, softball, baseball, volleyball, golf, tennis, cross country, and soccer.

In addition, Southwest offerings of club sports will be expanded to feature more activities of interest to the region: fishing, rifles, archery, cheer, and dance.
