A message from the athletic director:
At La Sierra University we are "servant leaders." It is through servant leadership and hard work that we believe we can find success. "The only place you will find the word success before work is in the dictionary," otherwise success comes with hard work.
It is important for us that through our athletics program we develop our athletes physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.
