BMCC participates in both the Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) and the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA). The NWAC is the parent organization for 36 community colleges in Oregon and Washington.

BMCC sponsors athletic teams under the NWAC that include:

Our rodeo team competes in the NIRA Northwest Region with universities and colleges from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.

NWAC and NIRA colleges provide a variety of academic and vocational offerings as well as many enrichment activities for their students.

Under the guidance of BMCC’s coaches and athletic director, student athletes are part of an athletic program that:

  • Stresses academic, personal, and athletic excellence 
  • Strengthens success-producing traits such as dedication, discipline, focus, integrity, communication, organization, and leadership 
  • Emphasizes the value of teamwork
  • Creates a positive, lasting memory of BMCC for each athlete

BMCC has been active in the rodeo world almost since the college was founded. Our men’s and women’s rodeo teams compete in intercollegiate rodeos throughout the Northwest and nationally. The team has enjoyed great success over the years by winning numerous regional championships and by winning the national championship in 1987 and the national reserve championship in 1999. Our BMCC rodeo team has produced many regional and national champions who have gone on to participate in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and become world and national PRCA champions.

If you are interested in becoming part of the Timberwolves pride and spirit, please contact the BMCC Athletics Department or team coach.
