Westcliff Athletics

Westcliff Athletics competes as a full member of the California Pacific Conference (Cal Pac) and National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) for nearly all of its sports. Since Dean of Athletics, Shawn Harris, took the helm, this department has grown exponentially in the number of student athletes, as well as now sponsoring 28 varsity sports: Baseball, M/W Basketball, M/W Beach Volleyball, Cheer, M/W Cross Country, E-Sports, M/W Futsal, M/W Water Polo, M/W Lacrosse, M/W Soccer, Softball, Stunt, Surf, M/W Swim, M/W Tennis, M/W Track & Field, M/W Volleyball, and Women’s Wrestling. Westcliff Athletics also offers an academy team (developmental program) for another 11 teams. Most impressive though is the 13 collective championships earned throughout the 2022 fall season and spring 2023 season.

Our athletic department is guided by the 5Cs; we strive to find great athletes with superior CHARACTER, who can establish an exceptional CULTURE, by making a tremendous impact in the COMMUNITY, by being fully COMMITTED to excellence, which will translate into CHAMPIONSHIPS! Our 5Cs are the epitome of who we are and what we do on and off the field of play.

Our athletes work hard in the classroom and seek to be a student first, representing Westcliff University as exemplary student-athletes.  Our teams compete as true Warriors and battle wholeheartedly against all levels of competition. We recruit athletes from near and far and represent countries from all around the world. Check our site for the team’s schedules and come cheer on your Westcliff Warriors!
