Welcome to Paradise Valley Community College Athletics. 

The Mission of Paradise Valley Community College is to educate the whole person and to serve our students and our communities by providing learning opportunities that are designed to help them achieve their goals.  We believe athletics are an integral part of that mission.  We strive to serve as a model amongst NJCAA athletic programs for excellence in academic success and athletic achievement.  We empower Puma student-athletes to achieve championship performance, while graduating/transferring and preparing them for life after intercollegiate athletics with the highest priority on integrity.

The success of our student-athletes both on the field and in the classroom is a priority for our coaches, faculty, and staff.  Their success is important to all of us, because we know college is an experience that shapes individuals while advancing the well-being of our society.  It is an experience of discovery and self-improvement, the learning of multiple perspectives and the development of an inclusive approach that takes into account all voices.  Being part of the Puma family helps cultivate better citizens, producing members of our community who possess a greater understanding of the public good.

Being a PVCC student-athlete is hard work.  But learning to balance academics and athletics offers lessons of a lifetime.
