Athletic & Recreation Program

Athletics

Located in the Wellness Center, the Georgian Court University intercollegiate athletics program seeks to develop individuals of integrity and character who exhibit a passion for excellence in academics and athletics and are leaders among their peers and in their communities.

Our goal is to:

  • provide each student-athlete with a competitive intercollegiate experience that exemplifies sportsmanship, ethics and teamwork;
  • challenge their physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth in a way that encompasses the Mercy core values of justice, respect, integrity, service, and compassion;
  • empower them to achieve academically and athletically and enhance their leadership skills so that they enjoy success both during and beyond their athletic experience.

Georgian Court offers historically competitive intercollegiate competition in these NCAA Division II sports: men’s and women’s basketball, cross-country, lacrosse, soccer, indoor and outdoor track and field, and women’s softball and volleyball. The athletics program is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II and the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC). Georgian Court Athletics competes in the university’s Wellness Center and surrounding fields and courts. Admission to all athletic contests is free with a current Georgian Court ID card.

Recreation & Intramurals

The GCU recreation and intramurals program seeks to promote good mental and physical health, as well as improved personal wellness and social interactions throughout the GCU community by encompassing a variety of activities for participation. The program is designed to create an atmosphere that encourages individuals to develop a lifelong pattern of wellness through positive recreational activities regardless of skill level.
