New Athlete Information
Welcome to Lasell College Athletics!
The athletic program at Lasell College provides student-athletes the opportunity to develop and display their talents through collegiate-level competition. At Lasell College, athletics are considered an integral part of a sound educational experience with the goal to have each student-athlete strive to reach his or her potential on and off the field. The athletic department fosters the development of sportsmanship, community, fair play, positive societal values and physical well-being for all participants.
Lasell's highest priority is to ensure that each student-athlete receives a superior education and successfully completes an academic program. We believe the leadership, teamwork and self-discipline learned on the playing field are qualities that lead to both athletic and academic success.
Lasell College is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III, the Easter College Athletic Conference (ECAC), the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) and an associate member of the North Atlantic Conference (NAC). The college follows the philosophy and the eligibility guidelines of NCAA Division III and of all associated conferences.

In addition to our varsity athletic programs, Lasell offers plenty of ways to stay active.
