The Pacific Coast Athletic Conference (PCAC) is an intercollegiate athletic conference governed by the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA).  We are comprised of ten community colleges including, Cuyamaca, Grossmont, Imperial Valley, MiraCosta, Miramar, Mt. San Jacinto, Palomar, San Diego City, San Diego Mesa, and Southwestern, all of which offer a wide variety of athletic competition.

We pride ourselves on honesty, integrity, and commitment to our students, educators, and administrators.  We strive for athletic excellence by promoting and developing student leadership and are committed to fostering gender equity and fair opportunities for students/athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators.


Commissioner's Message  New!


As the commissioner for the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference, I would like to welcome all of the new student athletes choosing to compete in community college athletics at one of our ten member colleges this 2014-15 season. We hope that at the end of this journey, you will be able to emphatically say, that it was the right choice for you.

We have learned a lot about our student athletes over the years. There are elements that both support and deter positive academic and athletic outcomes. On the positive side, I recommend that you take advantage of college resources. Do not wait to ask for help or intervention. Student support is one of our strongest assets. See your counselor, form study groups, and surround yourself with student athletes that share your vision and goals. Do not cut corners. Be the person you envision yourself to be through motivation and perserverance.

John Woods,

Chet DeVore Award

Grossmont edges Mesa for 2013-14 Chet DeVore Award (July 25, 2014)
Grossmont College edged out San Diego Mesa by 213.5 points to 211 points to win the 2013-14 Chet DeVore Award, emblematic of the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference member college with the most successful men’s and women’s intercollegiate athletic program for the academic year.

Grossmont, under Athletic Director Jim Spillers, won or tied for six conference championships, in women’s volleyball, women’s water polo, women’s tennis, men’s basketball, men’s water polo and men’s swimming & diving. The women’s volleyball team finished second in the state.

The award is named after the late Chester S. "Chet" DeVore, founding Commissioner of the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference. DeVore was President / Superintendent of Southwestern College in Chula Vista from 1961, when he supervised construction and development of its new Chula Vista campus, until his retirement as one of the nation's most respected community college CEOs 21 years later. He became the first Commissioner of the PCAC, the host conference for community college athletics in San Diego County and Imperial County, in 1982. He served until his retirement from that post in 1998. DeVore, a World War II hero and Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient who left a long legacy both in academics and athletics at the college, conference, state and national levels, died in January 2011. He was 92.
