Over the past three years the Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) has been competing against institutions from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCOA) with the goal of competing for the NATYCAA (National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators) Cup in the State Associations Division and the Learfield Cup.
The NATYCAA Cup recognizes program excellence in two-year college athletics based on success in championship competition.
The Learfield Sports Directors' Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institutions' finish in up to 10 sports-five women's and five men's.

The NWAC is pleased to announce that the Community Colleges of Spokane has won the 2015-16 NATYCAA State Associations Division (California Community Colleges Athletic Association and the Northwest Athletic Conference).
