Kinesiology, Athletics and Dance


The Bear Cub Athletic Trust (familiarly called the BCAT), was formed in 1995 as a committee under the auspices of the Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) Foundation. The organization drew together Bear Cub boosters, SRJC coaches, other college employees, and alumni to assist the SRJC athletic programs in various capacities such as fund-raising, volunteer support and as a liaison between the department and the community.

For almost two decades, under the leadership of our dedicated chairs, Bob Salisbury, Rick Call, Jim Ward, Mike Keefer, Jim Lanz and Laurie Beard, money has been raised in support of the various athletic programs. Funds raised have been used to:

  • support the purchase of state championship rings for the student athletes;
  • defray the cost of new department web pages;
  • provide video equipment for use by the coaches and student athletes;
  • purchase equipment for the athletic training room;
  • provide equipment for the various sport teams;
  • assist with costs associated with hosting tournaments, meets and state play-offs; and,
  • fund the Fall and Spring Award banquets for student athletes.

Since its inception, BCAT Committee members as well as various boosters have volunteered countless hours supporting athletic program activities and
events. These activities include:

  • hosting hospitality rooms for visiting coaches and officials at play-offs and tournaments;
  • setting up, running and supervising gate and concession operations;
  • promoting merchandise sales at home games; and,
  • planning and staffing events which include the annual Hall of Fame Dinner, the SRJC Golf Tournament, the annual Polenta Feed, the Clo Classic football game and the Fall and Spring Athletic Awards Banquets for SRJC student athletes.

Under the guidance of current chair, Laurie Beard, the Executive Board and General Membership Committee, the BCAT looks forward to an active year of providing annual fund-raising activities and helping where needed within the department.

SRJC Endowment Fund for Excellence in Athletics

In 2006, under the leadership of the Bear Cub Athletic Trust an endowment fund was established to ensure financial support for the athletic programs in perpetuity. The BCAT initially contributed to start this fund and continues to makes yearly contributions. Interest is made available yearly to the Kinesiology, Athletics and Dance Department in support of their needs. If you are interested in making a donation which will have a lasting impact on our student athletes, you can contact Athletic Director Ron Myers at 707/524-1849; the SRJC Foundation at 707/527-4348; or you can make a direct donation at the following link. d/79231/Default.aspx
