When do we practice?
Practice is scheduled daily (Monday through Friday) from 1-4 pm. So make sure you schedule your classes so that you are out of class during that time. Morning or evening/night classes are best.
What days do we play?
Most matches are scheduled on Wednesday and Friday nights. There are also a few Saturday tournaments.
What do I need to bring with me when I start?
When you first arrive, you will need to have the following items:

The Application for Admission is free. If you have not already applied, you may do so here. When you are finished with the application, there will be a link to take you to the free application for financial aid (FAFSA).
This is a must! Even if you know that you do not qualify! NO financial assistance can be given unless the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is completed. This is the most time consuming step, but perhaps the most important! Here's how to apply:
- Click here to begin and follow the directions on the page.
- The FAFSA will ask that you provide them the code for the school you are applying. Enter 001176
- Get a PIN from the U.S. Dept of Education at www.pin.ed.gov/appinstr.htm (Both the you AND a parent need to get your own PINs)
You may take a placement test at any community college. However, to find out about placement tests through West Hills click here. The score from that test will allow our advising staff to accurately place you in the appropriate math and/or English class. .
There are three options for students: 1) live at home and commute, 2) live off campus (i.e. apartment), or 3) live on campus.
