Bakersfield College offers a wide range of programs and activities for students to participate in and stay active.

From intramural sports like basketball and volleyball to fitness classes like yoga and cardio, there is something for everyone. Bakersfield College is dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle and encouraging students to get involved in physical activities that they enjoy.

In addition to the recreational programs, the department also has a strong athletic program with teams competing in various sports such as football, soccer, softball, and cross country. These teams are composed of students who are passionate about their sport and strive to perform at their best. The department provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills, learn teamwork and sportsmanship, and represent the college in intercollegiate competitions. The coaching staff is knowledgeable and experienced, providing guidance and support to help students reach their full potential.


It is the mission of the Bakersfield College Athletics Department to provide a first-class student athlete experience, compete for championships, cultivate students who complete academic goals or transfer to four-year institutions, and serve as a source of pride for the College and Community.
