Competitive teams

Competitive events with nearby colleges give Simon’s Rock students the opportunity to test their mettle while making new friends outside of the college community.

Participating in competitive athletics requires a higher level of commitment, responsibility, and enthusiasm and provides yet another unique opportunity to learn and grow during the educational process. The coaching staff’s primary goal is to contribute to your liberal arts curriculum by utilizing the sports arena as their classroom and providing you with tools and experiences that will prepare you for life after Simon’s Rock.

Additionally, you will experience the camaraderie and excitement of participating in a team sport. If you are interested in playing on any of the Simon’s Rock competitive teams, please be in touch with the coaches during the summer; all Simon’s Rock teams compete in the fall semester.
