Derek Viveiros enters his fifth year as the Bristol Community College Athletic Director. Since his arrival in 2010, the program has hit major strides on and off the field of play. The number of student-athletes at Bristol has increased by 112% since 2010, which can be attributed to a significant increase in student-athlete grade point average, the implementation of a student-athlete advising program, and academic monitoring.
Under Viveiros’ leadership, the Bristol Athletic Department has competed in five regional tournaments, including a championship game appearance in men’s soccer in 2013 and a MCCAC Championship in men’s basketball during the 2013-14 season. In 2012, Bristol Athletics implemented coed tennis and started the "Bristol Invitational" to kick off the season.
Viveiros serves on the Region XXI women’s soccer committee, chairs the Region XXI tennis committee, and is a member of the National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA).
Derek came to BCC via Iowa Wesleyan College where he spent three years as lead assistant on the baseball team, serving as the hitting and outfielders coach for the Tigers. In his first two years at IWC, Viveiros helped the Tigers become one of the top hitting teams in the Midwest Collegiate Conference. In 2010 IWC led the conference in hits, slugging percentage, home runs and runs batted in and ranked second in batting average. The IWC offense set a program record with 72 homeruns in the 2010 season. The Tigers won two conference championships during Viveiros’ time at IWC.
Prior to his arrival at Iowa Wesleyan, he served in similar positions with Alderson Broaddus College in Philippi, WV and with current Region XXI opponent, Dean College
