Athletics

Harvey Mudd College, Claremont McKenna College and Scripps College are associated in a joint program of intercollegiate athletics, intramural and recreational activities, physical education and club sports known as Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (CMS) Athletics.

The CMS Facilities are expansive and cover most, if not all, of your sporting needs. A list of facilities can be found at the CMS Athletics website and include:

  • Football field
  • Gymnasium (aerobic fitness room; weight room with both free weights and a Nautilus system)
  • Soccer field
  • Lacrosse field
  • Nine-lane, 400-meter track
  • Baseball field
  • Softball field
  • Aquatics center with a competition pool for swimming, diving and water polo
  • Twelve lit Plexipave tennis courts
  • Volleyball courts
  • Numerous intramural and recreational fields

The Linde Activities Center, located on Harvey Mudd’s campus, includes a weight room, basketball court and aerobics room.

The Sallie Tiernan Field House contains a weight room, aerobics room, cardio machine room, soccer/lacrosse field and a 25-meter lap pool, all located at Scripps College.

Robert’s Pavilion is currently under construction at Claremont McKenna College (CMC) and upon completion will have even newer facilities available to all Harvey Mudd, CMC and Scripps students and athletes. Robert’s Pavilion will replace Ducey Gym at CMC, which means that some facilities are temporarily unavailable or are sharing resources during construction.

Intercollegiate Competition

The intercollegiate athletic program is one of the most successful in the country. A member of NCAA Division III and the nine-member Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC), CMS sponsors 21 intercollegiate sports for men and women.

Intramural Competition

Students who do not participate in intercollegiate competition may join intramural sports teams for men and women. There is a friendly but fierce rivalry among residence halls in such sports as inner-tube water polo, flag football, volleyball, soccer, basketball, softball, golf, swimming, tennis, bowling and ultimate Frisbee.

Club Sports

Club sports of ballroom dancing, fencing, men’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s rugby, men’s and women’s ultimate Frisbee, men’s roller hockey,  volleyball, cycling and equestrian play an important role in The Claremont Colleges’ list of activities.
