AWC has more than 50 clubs and organizations ranging from math, music, athletics, to culinary and chess clubs.
AWC's athletic teams compete in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference (ACCAC) and are collectively known as the Matadors. They competed in the Western States Football League (WSFL) until 2018, when changes in football programs in nearby colleges made it prohibitive for them to continue their program.
The Arizona Western College Matadors field 8 intercollegiate teams, four for men and four for women. Men's sports at Arizona Western include baseball, basketball, and soccer. The Matador women compete in basketball, soccer, softball, and volleyball. The basketball, baseball, and football teams have produced numerous professional athletes like Leonard Thompson, Crawford Ker, Rafael Araujo, Bengie Molina, Sergio Romo, Randy Gregory, and Nate Archibald. In 2014, the Matadors' football team won the El Toro Bowl to finish the season with an 11 - 1 record.
