PHILOSOPHY OF ATHLETIC PROGRAM

WHAT LIONS ARE MADE OF

Not only do Lions of all different sports root for one another, they also give back to the broader community. In addition to showing up for younger athletes in the local area, Lions work with Athletes Helping Athletes, organizing fundraisers, games, and events for athletes with special needs. Our values are right there in our name:

 
L Leadership - What happens on the field helps to prepare you for life long lessons such as staying supportive of your teammates when struggling with defeat, sharing success with others, staying resilient in the face of adversity, and the value of practicing charity.  
  I Integrity - Live with conviction and honesty.  
  O Opportunity - Achieve your goals and create opportunities for all.  
  N Nobility - Develop your character and moral excellence.  
  S Service - Make the world a better place.

NEVER RUN OUT OF PLACES TO ROAM

At the center of campus you’ll find the Major General Ronald K. Nelson field, a synthetic turf fit for soccer,  field hockey, and lacrosse games. One of the greatest gems of our campus is the Jungé Pavillion an open-air ice rink. Want to get away from it all? There’s 116 acres of open green space at North Campus perfect for hiking, biking, cross country running, and finding peace in nature.

KEEP THAT WINNING STREAK

Bryn Athyn makes sure that every Lion can keep scoring goals, hitting their marks, and setting themselves up for success once they leave campus. All student-athletes must maintain good academic standing in order to continue participating in sports. To make sure that our athletes are reaching their full potential, students in their first academic term are part of additional academic support
