Sports at CC

edited May 2012 in Community Colleges

I wonder if its possible to make sports in a CC just for fun and without any ambitions to achieve a scholarship or to become a pro. I could find a lot of information about the teams of the CC's which compete against others but I could not find any information for students who'd like to make sports as a balance for studying. I am interested in soccer, swimming & basketball. What do you think? Are there opportunities f.e. in De Anza, SMC, SBCC or mt. San Antonio... etc. ? Hows like the situation in general at colleges?

Thanks for your replies!!

    Do you know any CC's which have very good sport facilities (especially swimming facilities) ?

    i think cc's should all have football soccer basketball and hockey teams. so then it kinda feels like your part of somthing.

    Of course you can make it fun. Sports are fun in general. I was a top high school track recruit but had bad grades so I ended up at a CC. I ran for a year but decided not to my second year. It's just like high school athletics; lots of fun and you meet new people. I did eventually end up running again at the university I transferred to though. A lot different at a D1 school LOL.
