Emerson College’s student-athletes, also known as the Emerson Lions, compete in 14 Division III Intercollegiate programs. We belong to the highly competitive New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) and are home to teams in basketball, baseball, cross-country, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Games are streamed live using PlaySight technology, so fans can watch from anywhere, and coaches can provide real-time feedback to players. Recent Lions achievements include a 2022 NEWMAC championship win for the Women’s Soccer team and six student-athletes being named to the Spring 2023 NEWMAC All Sportsmanship Teams. 

Every student on the Boston campus has access to high-quality athletic facilities; supportive fitness staff; and a variety of physical activities, such as intramural dodgeball, volleyball, futsal, and basketball. Our Fitness Center boasts a wide variety of fitness equipment and machines. The Bobbi Brown and Steven Plofker Gym, named for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics founder Bobbi Brown ’79 and her husband, hosts open facility hours for shooting hoops or other sports activities. 

At Emerson Los Angeles, students have 24/7 access to a yoga studio and fitness center in the building. Students studying at Kasteel Well can use a weight room on the grounds and receive a discounted membership to a fitness center with a variety of equipment and an indoor swimming pool in the village of Well.

Whether you’re competing in a Division III match or playing in a pick-up game, participating in Emerson athletics and recreation builds self-discipline, teamwork, and grit. These traits reinforce your ability to excel in academics and at any goal you set in life.
