The athletics program at Albright College is geared to student-athletes who love their sport and want the freedom to explore everything college life has to offer.
Albright sponsors 20 sports teams on the varsity level, 10 for men and 10 for women, with more than 30 percent participation of the student body in intercollegiate athletics. The college also supports four established club teams (men's lacrosse, deck hockey, men's and women's rugby, badminton, and ultimate frisbee) and a wide variety of seasonal intramurals.
Albright is a member of the 16-team Middle Atlantic Conference, arguably the nation's strongest NCAA Division III conference. Because of that, student-athletes at Albright have the rare opportunity to compete on a high level and enjoy the benefits of the small-college environment. In addition to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and MAC, Albright is affiliated with the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC).
Albright coaches ask for dedication both on the fields and in the classrooms. Despite the challenge, many Lion athletes earn grade-point averages of 3.0 and above in a variety of pre-professional disciplines and distinctive programs. Clearly, Albright is about academic excellence, first and foremost.
