Supporting Our Students — You!

Our faculty, coaches and professional staff provide opportunities for skill, strength, and strategy development while also creating a supportive environment in which student-athletes can build academic habits and time management skills.

While our highly competitive teams are regularly rewarded with post-conference opportunities, Foothill student-athletes are expected to work hard in the classroom as well.

Our strong transfer success rates show that hard work pays off. There are Foothill Owls across the state and across the country earning 4-year degrees, competing at the next level, and reaching their goals. We invite you to visit us for a class or event, and share in Foothill Owl pride!
