Intercollegiate Varsity Athletics

Each year about 200 Simmons students enjoy the challenge, training, and experience of intercollegiate athletics. This is an opportunity to compete against other colleges in New England and to acquire the skills of teamwork, leadership, and sportsmanship. A professional staff of competitive coaches will help you achieve goals specific to your sport. Most practices are conducted in the evening for two hours; competitions are weekdays and weekends. Coaches are available to meet with you to answer any questions before the season begins and to talk about try-outs, commitment, schedules and teams. Stop by the Athletics Department in the Sports Center at any time or call/email the coach listed on the athletics website.
