Loyalist College and its Athletic Department are committed to providing an extraordinary variety of athletic opportunities that meet the talents, interests and needs of a broad range of individuals. The spectrum of programs and activities available for men and women includes “drop-in” recreation, physical education, intramural and club sports, and a broad array of competitive intercollegiate athletic teams.
The purpose of all Athletic Department activities is to foster and compliment the overall academic and intellectual growth of Loyalist students and provide experiences that will enable them to interact in a special way with other students, test their own personal limits, and gain from the demands and realities of athletic competition and the success and adversity that go with it.
With respect to affirming and maintaining standards of conduct for responsible student behavior within the College community, our goals throughout the department are to encourage the highest level of deportment and performance not only in athletic endeavors but in all phases of campus life, particularly because many of our participants are very visible representatives of Loyalist and, in many respects, important role models.
In attempting to do our part in sponsoring a rich variety of opportunities for students to grow intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally and morally, our goals are to make available high quality coaching, support services, scheduling, facilities and equipment; and to encourage excellence and meaningful interaction, no matter what the level of participation. Furthermore, we aim to strive continually to make sure there is equity among the genders in all our programs and reasonable access to our facilities and our activities so that engaging in them is not overly complicated or difficult.
