Director's Message

Welcome to Gator Athletics. Since 1969, intercollegiate athletics has been a vital element to the campus culture of Green River College. The athletic department is committed to the overall vision and mission of the institution. The department strives to have each athlete reach their fullest potential in every area of the student-athletic experience. Student-athletes will develop academically, socially, mentally and through the physical realm of competition.

I am thrilled that you have decided to become part of the Green River experience. The coaching staff and I are committed to your success as we work hard to promote the continued growth and well being of each student-athlete.  We encourage our student athletes to integrate their athletic opportunity with their whole collegiate experience. This is done by stressing campus involvement, character development, sportsmanship, and servant leadership.

Green River Athletics is a proud member of the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges which provides our student athletes opportunities for competition as well as post-season play.  Our student body takes pride in our achievements and has continued to support athletes in volleyball, soccer, cross country, basketball, golf, track and field, baseball, softball and cheer.  

I look forward to working with you.  Let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you in achieving your goals during your time at Green River. Go GATORS!!

In Sport,

Bob Kickner
Director of Athletics
