Athletic Department

It is the philosophy of the Lasell College Athletic Program to place the highest priority on the overall quality of the educational experience and on the successful completion of academic goals. Athletics are conducted as a part of the student-athlete's educational experience. The athletic program is meant to complement the educational program and vice-versa. The Athletic Department will strive to encourage participation by maximizing the number and variety of opportunities offered in varsity and intramural programs. It is the goal of the Athletic Department to foster the development of sportsmanship, community, fair play, positive societal values and physical well-being in all participants.

Lasell College holds membership in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III, the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC), and the Great Northeast Athletic Conference. All teams have access to post-season play through conference championships, the ECAC and the NCAA. Lasell currently sponsors seventeen varsity sports teams: basketball, volleyball, soccer, field hockey, cross country, lacrosse, softball, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field are offered for women; and basketball, baseball, soccer, cross country, lacrosse, volleyball, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field are offered for men. Participants in the athletic program receive the same treatment as all other students. Division III student-athletes receive no special privileges in admission, financial aid, advising, grading or living accommodations. The emphasis of the program is placed on the welfare of the participants, and not on the spectators or the entertainment value of sport.

Intramural programs are provided for the college community throughout the year and include flag football, beach volleyball, dodge ball and basketball. Step-aerobics, cardio kickboxing and muscle conditioning classes are offered as non-credit class activities throughout the semester.

The Athletic Center is located in the middle of campus and is home to the basketball/volleyball courts, locker rooms, overhead track, and aerobic/dance studio. The Edwards Fitness Center, located adjacent to the Athletic Center on the first level of the Edwards Student Center and the McClelland Fitness Center, located on the first floor of McClelland Hall, are equipped with both cardiovascular and weight training equipment. Both Fitness Centers are staffed and available for student use approximately 80 hours a week; whenever the Fitness Centers are open for use, there is a certified staff member available (students may not use the Fitness Centers in the absence of a certified staff member). Taylor Field is adjacent to the field house and is used for varsity soccer and softball. Grellier Field is located on Aspen Road and is an artificial turf field used for varsity field hockey, and lacrosse. The Athletic Center and Fitness Centers are open for students, faculty and staff use during the academic year. Please check the centers for hours of operation. Students are encouraged to use the facilities regularly to maintain health and fitness. Other facilities include tennis courts located on Maple Terrace, a beach volleyball court located on Woodland Road, and a boathouse on the Charles River.
