November 19-20 Soccer Clinics -
The fall of 2016 will see the birth of the women’s soccer program followed by the start of the new men’s program in the fall of 2017. Coach Art Mota will be leading both programs. Student athletes interested in making history should contact Art at 541-278-5892 or 541-936-4819.
Art Mota has over 20 years of coaching experience and 11 years of experience as a soccer referee. Coach Mota holds a USSF E/D coaching license, a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from California State University, Fresno, and a Master’s in Sports Coaching/Sports Psychology from the United States Sports Academy. He comes to BMCC from Chemeketa Community College in Salem, Oregon where he quickly rebuilt the program and earned the respect of fellow coaches, teams, and officials.
“I am very excited about this opportunity. It doesn't happen often when you get to start a college program and lay the foundation for the future. My top priority will be to recruit student athletes who are determined in earning a degree and moving on to a university. I am just as competitive as any other coach, but academics will always be first and foremost. This first season will be very challenging. The NWAC is a strong conference in soccer and what incoming players have to prepare for is the speed of play and physical/mental demands of the college game. Student-athletes coming to BMCC will quickly find out that expectations are high, fitness and fundamentals will be emphasized, respect towards officials and opposing teams at all times, and conduct yourself in a manner that positively represents BMCC.”

Mi principal prioridad será reclutar a esutdiantes-athletas que están decididos en obtener su titulo y seguir a una universidad. Soy tan competitivo como cualquier otro entrenador, pero los estudios será siempre en primer lugar.
Esta primera temporada será muy difícil. La NWAC es una conferencia fuerte en el fútbol y lo que los jugadores entrantes se tienen que preparer es la velocidad del juego y la demanda física y mental del juego colegial. Estudiantes-atletas a BMCC rápidamente encontrarán que las expectativas son altas, condicion física y fundamentos será enfatizado, el respeto hacia los arbitros y los equipos contrarios en todo momento, y comportarse de una manera que representa a BMCC positivamente.”
Please join Timberwolves Women's Soccer in welcoming Tyra Carter! Tyra made history by becoming the first ever recruit for the BMCC women’s soccer program. Tyra will be a 2016 Hermiston High School graduate. Her dad is a Blue Mountain Community College graduate so she is following in her father’s footsteps. I’m looking forward to coaching her this up-coming season. I am very excited for Tyra and her family.
