Oxnard College to Reinstate Women’s and Men’s Basketball

The Oxnard College Athletic Department is proud to announce the reinstatement of Women’s and Men’s Basketball for the 2014-15 school year. Reinstating Oxnard College’s Basketball programs will provide an opportunity to extend the mission of being a multicultural, comprehensive institution of higher learning. Oxnard College empowers and inspires students to succeed in their personal and educational goals.

Meetings were held with students, faculty, staff, and friends to gather feedback. A variety of factors were considered in making the final decision, including the impact on student life, college-community relations, and the role of athletics as a rallying point for the vitality of the institution.

The Condors will field both Women’s and Men’s Basketball teams for the 2014-15 season. Scheduling, recruitment of student-athletes, and many other pertinent logistical details will need to be addressed soon. Plans are underway for a full coaching staff to be in place before the end of spring semester so that recruiting can take place.

“It’s a breath of fresh air for our department and college,” said Athletic Director, Jonas Crawford. “This reinstatement is a great sign that our institution is on the rise and shows the tremendous value our administration has for athletics.” Oxnard College President, Dr. Richard Durán, commented, “I am pleased to be able to restore two athletic programs to provide opportunities to develop students outside of the classroom.”

If anyone is interested in playing for the Condors next season, please contact the Oxnard College Athletic Department at (805) 986-5825 or email Jonas Crawford, Athletic Director, at jcrawford1@vcccd.edu.
