Sports & Recreation

Whether you’re on the court, on the field or cheering in the stands, you’re one of the team.. We have 16 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) programs and plenty of intramural teams so everyone can get involved and become Champions of Character!

What does it mean to be a Champion of Character?

It means who you are and how you do things matters. When you’re a Cougar athlete, you don’t just show up for practice. You’ll come with us during school visits and campus clinics to talk to younger athletes about the importance of character and sportsmanship. As a collegiate athlete, these younger students look up to you. It’s an incredible opportunity to be a good role model and lead by example. You will be among the best anywhere.

Join something bigger than yourself.
