About Athletics at Waubonsee

All hail the Chiefs!

The success of intercollegiate athletics programs is determined by the achievements of its student-athletes. And the Waubonsee Chiefs represent some of the best in the nation. Waubonsee’s renowned Athletics Department is comprised of student-athletes focused on excellence — in their studies and their sport.

Playing with honor

Part of a winning athletic tradition, Waubonsee's Athletics Department annually averages more than 165 student athletes across 13 sports — and 85 percent of our athletes transfer to four-year institutions to finish their degrees. We're part of the eight-member Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) and consistently contend for the conference's annual All-Sports Trophy, bringing this honor home in 2009-2010. Waubonsee also belongs to Region IV of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), with several of our teams earning national ranking in the annual NJCAA polls. This level of recognition ignites the spirit of the college, garnering support among students, faculty, staff, alumni and our community.
