NWIC participates in an Intramural Athletic program. Men’s and Women’s basketball being among the most popular of athletic programs; students compete with other Tribal Colleges and Universities, as well as in pre-season games against regional community colleges.

Students have the opportunity to participate in women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s golf and co-ed softball. Other sports are available based on student interest such as cross country, canoeing, and tennis.

Student athletes are expected to be leaders both on and off the court. It is the expectation that athletes attend all of their classes, sit in the front of the classroom and actively participate in class.

The purpose of the intramural athletics at Northwest Indian College is to make participation in sports a meaningful part of student-centered education and to foster wellness, camaraderie and social development through competitions and activities.
