The Endicott Athletic Department holds memberships in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA, Division III), the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC), the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC), the New England Football Conference (NEFC), the Northeast Collegiate Volleyball Association (NECVA), the North East Collegiate Hockey Association (NECHA), and the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA). The department sponsors intercollegiate varsity teams in the following sports: Men’s and Women’s Cross Country, Football, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Volleyball, Women’s Field Hockey, Men’s and Women’s Tennis, Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse, Men’s and Women’s Golf, an Equestrian team, and varsity club Cheerleading, Crew, Dance, Ice Hockey, and Sailing.

Endicott’s Athletic Department believes that in concert with academic pursuits, intercollegiate athletics challenge students to develop life skills. Just as Endicott’s curriculum is enhanced by the internship experience, varsity athletics give students the opportunity to form and test healthy life-long values and habits. Backed by committed coaches and faculty, Endicott athletes push themselves to realize their academic and physical potential. While winning is important, a truer measure of success is evaluating how each student athlete prepares for competition and the success, failure, and conflicts inherent in sports.


Clubs and Intramurals


The School of Sport Science and Fitness Studies and the Post Center, offer club activities in fitness and intramural sports. One of the unique advantages of Endicott’s size is the College’s ability to respond to students’ interests. Students in the Fitness Club, for example, work out three or four times a week learning new aerobic movements and steps. In addition, club members have the opportunity to lead and choreograph the classes. Many of the students earn their NDEITA (National Dance Exercise Instructor Training Association) certification while members of the club. Other clubs offered include Sport Marketing Club, Sport Activators Club, and Athletic Training Club. Yearly intramural and recreational events include Flag Football, Volleyball, Floor Hockey, 3-3 Basketball, Indoor Soccer, Softball, 5-5 Basketball, Arena Football, Ultimate Frisbee, Racquetball, Tennis, and Pond Hockey. Fitness activities include Step Aerobics, Kickboxing, Power Yoga, Tae Kwon Do, Butts & Gutts, Band-Tastic, Jazzercise, Abs Solutely, Women’s Self-Defense, Circuit Training, Latin Dance, and Endurance Step. Club Sports include Adventure Based Council, Cheerleading Squad, Crew, Dance Team, Fitness Club, Hockey, Kayaking, and Sailing. Student organizers are free to sponsor any event that has enough interest. For a listing of all College clubs, please see the Endicott College Handbook for Students.

Athletic Policies


Academic Policy Concerning Athletes

As a NCAA Division III member, Endicott College supports the Association’s philosophy that financial aid for all students is based on financial need or academic merit.

In compliance with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Endicott College academic officials, each student athlete shall be enrolled in a minimum, full-time course of study of not less than 12 credits per semester and maintain satisfactory academic progress as specified by this Catalog for all credits attempted at all institutions attended Cumulative grade point averages are determined only by courses taken at Endicott College.

NCAA Pilot Research Study

The Endicott College Athletic Department has been accepted into the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) two-year drug testing research pilot for the 2007-08 and 2008-09 academic years. Results from the pilot will be strictly confidential and used only by the NCAA to determine whether it will implement a drug testing program as a condition of membership. Currently Divisions I and II have year-round drug testing programs in place. Approximately 10% of Endicott student athletes will be randomly selected for testing in each year of the research. There will be no sanctions or identification for any athlete who tests positive for use of a banned substance during the pilot program. Along with testing, the Athletic Department will also be implementing a drug education program that is associated with the research pilot.
