Athletics & Recreation

Hawks Have Fun.

About one-third of Hartwick students compete in varsity athletics—so no matter the season, there’s always a reason to cheer each other on.

We’re built for competitive and casual athletes.

Binder Physical Education Center houses Lambros Arena, Moyer Pool in the Sally Griffiths Herbert ’88 Aquatics Center, Elting Fitness Center, a practice gym for pick-up games, racquetball and squash courts, a strength-training room, dance studios, and saunas.

We also have six tennis courts; a 400-meter synthetic track; Wright Stadium, where our football, field hockey, and lacrosse teams play; the all-weather Elmore Field for soccer; and three natural grass fields for varsity practice and intramural and club team play.

Men’s Varsity Sports
Basketball, cross country, football, indoor track, lacrosse, outdoor track, soccer, swimming & diving.

Women’s Varsity Sports
Basketball, cross country, equestrian, field hockey, indoor track, lacrosse, outdoor track, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, and volleyball.

For the beginner, the casual athlete, and the hardcore competitor, recreational and competitive sports are available all across campus. As a Hartwick student, you’ll have opportunities to create a new team and plan your own competitions, regardless of your background, skill, or physical ability.

Hawk Pride.

If you’re more comfortable rooting from the sidelines, join Swoop, the mascot of the Hartwick Hawks. Show your Hartwick pride all season—but never more than during Code Blue. It’s Hartwick College’s campus-wide spirit drive for special home games. Students, faculty, and staff turn out in droves, wearing blue and white, to cheer on our men’s and women’s teams.
