Sport and Virtue

The Belmont Abbey College Department of Athletics values each college athlete as student first and athlete second, and in so doing, strives to create exceptional students so that in all things God may be glorified.  In this endeavor, the athletic department is guided by the Catholic intellectual tradition and the Benedictine spirit of prayer and learning.

While training our athletes to become superior competitors, the Department believes in adhering to the physical and emotional needs of student-athletes in order to maintain their health and well-being. Coaches, faculty and staff continuously encourage learning and academic excellence while strengthening the athlete’s talents and performance.

The Department values the principles of Reclaim the Game and supports athletes in developing virtue, sportsmanship, honesty and integrity.

All students are highly valued and regarded as significant participants in diversifying, expanding and developing our college as well as our athletic program. The Athletic Department will ensure the equal treatment of all student-athletes.
