Director

Welcome to the Diné College website, First and foremost, Thank You for supporting our institution and the athletic teams offered. We are very proud of our student-athletes for their hard work and commitment to academics and athletics.

Intercollegiate athletics contribute to our young Diné men and women through structure and the framework of organized and disciplined programs. Diné College Athletics is an essential part of the education process, it offers a confident and purposeful experience that will strengthen the growth and development of our Diné athletes.

We encourage full participation in academics, because of the important life lessons that are learned when student-athletes are involved in their own education. There are many gratifying opportunities associated with being a student-athlete, with the right attitude and planning, student-athletes will achieve a proper balance between academics and athletics.

Student Athletes are encouraged to work hard, display sportsmanship, and show respect for teammates, coaches, officials, and opponents.
