If you are someone who enjoys the thrill of competition and the chance to challenge yourself physically, you will 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 is 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 are always looking for new ways to “Get in the Game.”
Loyola Marymount Athletics grooms champions in 22 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, bringing 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.
Over the past two decades our Lions have claimed 35 of their overall 48 conference championships, and 45 of their 67 NCAA postseason appearances. Many LMU student-athletes have advanced to the next level in their respective sports by competing in professional leagues and the Olympics.
