The Cal State Dominguez Hills athletics department has built a national reputation for athletic and academic achievement, further solidified by the 2011 NCAA Track & Field 4x400 National Championship and the 2008 NCAA Men's Soccer National Championship, the men's soccer program's second NCAA Title in an eight-year stretch, which included both NSCAA National Coach and Player of the Year honors.
The Toros compete nationally at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II level, and are a member of the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA), recognized nationally as the NCAA Division II "Conference of Champions," with 154 NCAA National Titles to date.  Additionally, CSUDH is the only NCAA Division II program to capture both men's and women's soccer titles after the Toros women's soccer team garnered the first-ever NCAA National Championship for CSUDH in 1991.
Away from the pitch, a CCAA Conference high three Toro baseball players were drafted in both the 2015 and 2014 Major League Baseball amateur drafts, with one selected this past season,
Cal State Dominguez Hills sponsors 10 intercollegiate athletic teams that serve approximately 200 student-athletes in men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, men's golf, baseball, women's volleyball, softball, and indoor/outdoor track and field.  A source of even greater pride than the Toros' considerable athletic achievements has been the success of Toro student-athletes in the classroom.  Toro student-athletes have boasted three Rhodes Scholar candidates and two Rhodes Scholar finalists since 1987 while winning two prestigious Woody Hayes Scholar Athlete Awards, making CSU Dominguez Hills one of just two schools in the nation with multiple award winners.
In 2008-2009 alone, the Toros boasted the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American of the Year, as well as the CCAA Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the first and third such honors won by the school, respectively. 
Athletic facilities such as the Torodome (gymnasium), fitness center, swimming pool, tennis courts, track and all-purpose field are available for use by enrolled students, faculty and staff.  Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use the facilities when there is no conflict with classes or other scheduled events and approved supervision is provided.
