If you are looking for a challenge and want to better yourself in the classroom and on the field, we have what you are looking for and much more. Treasure Valley Community college is located in Ontario, Oregon, along the Snake River, about 50 miles west of Boise, Idaho. If you are interested in transfer programs to a four-year university, or a two-year Associated degree, Treasure Valley Community College offers a variety of courses to satisfy your career interests. The excellent teacher to student ratio, on-campus housing, food service, and the opportunity to play college baseball makes Treasure Valley the perfect place to start your college experience.
Athletically, Treasure Valley Community College is a member of the Northwest Athletic Conference. We compete in the Eastern Division of the NWAC, which is arguably one of the toughest in the nation. The Eastern Division has produced NWAC champions in a number of sports, including baseball. We have the resources to offer athletic scholarships to student-athletes who we feel have the character and talent to help us win a championship. Do you have the goal of playing for an NWAC Championship?
Our baseball program has been in the NWAC since 2003, and has had an outstanding tradition of success. The program has won the East Region four times in 2005, 2013, 2014, and 2015. They have been to the Regional 12 out of the 13 years and made five trips to the NWAC Championships. The program has also been to the College World Series twice, most recently in 1990, where we finished fifth in the nation.
We have an eight-week fall schedule along with an extensive conditioning program in the winter. Our regular season begins in March and consists of 25 dates with the Chukars playing doubleheaders or two games on each date for a 50 game regular season schedule. Should the Chukars finish the season in the top four teams in the Eastern Division of the NWAC, then they proceed to the NWAC playoffs. If the Chukars win their league title they then receive a bye to the NWAC Championships. If they finish 2nd-4th, they then would play in an NWAC super regional hosted by each regions #2 seed.
In addition, we have the ability to place our returning players in a number of summer programs in an effort to provide an opportunity for our players to continue developing their skills. We provide the exposure our student-athletes need to get to the next level. A majority of our sophomores receive opportunities to play at the four-year or professional level. The program has produced 7 Major League Baseball players, had 27 players drafted, and sent over 200 players on to the next level, 58 being the Division 1 level.
Our outdoor and indoor facilities are excellent. Elks Memorial field is located on campus, 100 yards from the baseball clubhouse. The field has lights, natural grass, four turf batting cages, a full-inning by inning scoreboard, concessions, restrooms, a souvenir stand, a press box, and brand new covered stadium seating. The Stadium is also equipped for live internet video broadcasting of home games and four angle cameras for use of hitting and pitching analysis on Right View Pro (A MLB system). We also have a quality indoor hitting facility with three full tunnels, two Iron Mikes, two Jugs machines, and portable mounds next to the player's clubhouse and weight room.
We have a genuine concern for the overall welfare of our student-athletes. Everyone associated with our program works very hard to earn their rewards. Our number one priority is education and preparing our student-athletes for the future as we strive for excellence.
