Athletics Overview, Vision, Mission Statement and Values

Simmons University sponsors nine NCAA Division III varsity intercollegiate athletic teams. Athletics gives its athletes the best practice times, outstanding equipment and facilities, funding, and the undivided support of nearly 1,700 students who cheer on the athletes and encourage them to succeed in a spirited environment.

Since the 1989 opening of the Holmes Sports Center, varsity sports at Simmons have grown tremendously, both in the number of programs offered and the depth of the talent among athletes. In 2016, Simmons showed its strong support toward Athletics with the opening of the $13 million outdoor athletic complex, Daly Field. The state-of-the-art facility is the "greenest" field in New England, using environment-friendly organic infill.

While the majority of Simmons' competitive athletes are recruited out of high school, many skilled walk-ons get plenty of opportunities to play. Regardless of skill level, all Simmons athletes are students first. To enjoy the glory of athletic achievement, they must possess the desire to study and compete in an environment that rewards and respects academic excellence.

Simmons is a founding member of the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC), and an associate member of the New England Men's and Women's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC). All teams take on worthy opponents outside the GNAC such as MIT, Tufts, Brandeis, Smith and Wellesley, among others.
