Pacific YOU & Athletics

Who do I need to contact to get more information on playing a sport at Pacific University? Should I contact the coaches first? When or how is it the best time to reach out? Is there anything I need to do on my application to indicate that I am interested in playing a sport? These are just a few of many questions that our families have and we are here to answer them for you.
