LA Southwest Women's Basketball Philosophy

Welcome to the 2017-2018 season of Los Angeles Southwest College Women’s Basketball!

I’m very excited to be part of a tremendous athletic tradition at L.A. Southwest College and it is my top priority to help build the women’s basketball program into something that the school as well as the community can be proud of.

My goal every time we step on the floor is to prepare our young ladies mentally and to improve their fundamentals, so they can move on to have successful careers at four-year colleges and universities - as well-prepared student-athletes.

Academics is a very important part of my coaching philosophy. We can’t be committed to what we do as a team on the court if we are not as committed in the classroom and it is my belief that with a degree, our student-athletes are prepared to achieve more in life as well-rounded young adults.

Thanks again for all your support,

La’Nette Dillard

South Coast Conference

The South Coast Conference was officially authorized by the California State Athletic Committee of the California Community and Junior College Association (CCJCA) in October 1967. The South Coast Conference was created in 1968. Fully sanctioned women's athletics began in 1977-78 when CCJCA voted full recognition to women's and coed athletics under the same code as men's athletics.

California Community College Athletic Association

The California Community College Athletic Association is an integral part of California's extensive community college system. As authorized by the State Legislature, the Education Code provides the CCCAA the opportunity and authority to establish the rules and regulations to administer the athletic activities of the nearly 27,000 men and women in the state.
