The Azusa Pacific Cougars are the 17 varsity athletic teams that represent Azusa Pacific University, located in Azusa, California, in NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports. The Cougars compete as members of the Pacific West Conference for most sports except football (Great Northwest Athletic Conference), women's swimming and diving (Pacific Coast Swimming and Diving Conference), and women's water polo (Golden Coast Conference). Prior to the 2012-13 academic year, the Cougars competed in the Golden State Athletic Conference as part of the NAIA. On July 11, 2011 Azusa Pacific began the three-year transition process to becoming a member of the NCAA. At that time, they joined the Pacific West Conference of NCAA Division II and became a football-only member of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.[2]

Azusa Pacific Athletics achieved eight consecutive wins of the Directors’ Cup from 2005 to 2012, with a total of 108 GSAC Championships and 36 NAIA National Championships.[3]
