If you’re someone who enjoys the thrill of competition and the chance to challenge yourself physically, you’ll have no problem finding plenty of opportunities at LMU. This is an active place!
At LMU, we like to play as hard as we work. Whether it’s cheering on our LMU Lions Division 1 athletic teams, participating in one of the many intramural or club sports or just playing a game of pickup soccer, we’re always looking for new ways to “Get in the Game.”
Loyola Marymount Athletics grooms champions in 21 men’s and women’s varsity sports, ranging from baseball to cross country, basketball to swimming. Most LMU teams compete in the West Coast Conference, which affords our atheletes superior athletic and academic competition. Last year, the WCC ranked second among all Division I conferences in the NCAA Academic Progress Rates report, based on graduation and retention rates.
LMU Athletics earned the 2005-06 West Coast Conference Commissioner’s Cup, an all-sports award presented to the league’s top-performing school in conference play. Many LMU student-athletes have advanced to the next level in their respective sports by competing in professional leagues and the Olympics.
