Sports & Athletics

Alongside PUC's mental endeavors and spiritual community, we have always worked to promote healthy living. Our gymnasium, known officially as Pacific Auditorium but more endearingly called "The Covered Wagon," stays busy with students playing sports in formal and informal groups. The fitness center and weight room, climbing wall, pool, track, and tennis courts are used for both classes and independent recreation. From physical fitness classes to our many popular intramurals to league sport teams, there is something for every student.

Pioneers Athletics

Our Pioneers teams in men's and women's basketball and cross country, men's soccer, and women's volleyball play in the California Pacific Conference, a division of the National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics.
