The fan experience

As a Messiah student, you'll have many opportunities to be a spectator and become a loyal Falcon fan cheering on our 22 NCAA Division III teams at countless athletic events. Whether sitting at the diamond cheering on the softball team or spending a Saturday watching soccer or lacrosse, it’s a great way to spend time with friends and get in the school spirit.



Athletes looking for a college that is committed to balancing sports and academics will feel right at home at Messiah College, too. 

NCAA teams

Messiah's NCAA athletic teams' academic achievements are as impressive as their athletic accomplishments. Our teams have been consistently presented with high grade point average and scholar-athlete awards—a testament to our goal of developing the whole student through sports.

Club and rec sports

In addition to NCAA athletics, there are many club sports to join and recreational leagues on campus. Our men’s club volleyball team is three-time national champions, and it’s always a fun competition to see which teams win the coveted rec sports league title.


As a Messiah athlete, no matter what level you compete at, you practice something of lifelong importance— directing your talents and hard work toward a greater purpose.
