St. Olaf College is part of the intensely competitive Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) and has the most varsity sports (25!) out of the eleven other NCAA Division III colleges and universities within MIAC. Since 1999, St. Olaf athletes have earned All-American honors more than 25 times, and had student athletes go on to play professional football and baseball. Here at St. Olaf, we wear our black and gold on our sleeves.

While playing on a varsity team is a great option for some, St. Olaf also offers 14 club sports and over 40 intramural options for students with busy schedules and a passion for keeping in shape. Ranging from the serious (basketball and soccer) to the downright silly (whiffleball and innertube water polo), over 75% of students at St. Olaf participate in an intramural sport during their time at St. Olaf College. Their wild popularity brings four different “blocks” with sports for each season so no matter if you’re a four-season athlete or someone who enjoys a casually competitive game of broomball with friends, St. Olaf has the perfect athletic options for you.

In addition to the variety of sports on campus, St. Olaf also offers the highest quality workout facilities available. With multiple indoor tracks, two weight rooms, and an indoor climbing wall, St. Olaf is here to keep you healthy, regardless if you’re training for a triathlon or working out for the first time.
