Athletics

 

After careful consideration regarding the unprecedented circumstances brought on by the current state of the global pandemic, Hampshire College has made the decision to postpone varsity sports for the fall 2020 semester until the spring semester of 2021. 

The Hampshire College athletic department seeks to provide wellness and leadership opportunities to improve the well-being of student-athletes, and to build a greater sense of community within the college and outside communities. In the fall semester, Hampshire will continue to engage with student-athletes while meeting health and safety guidelines. The Hampshire fall athletic programs affected by this decision are men's and women's soccer, cross-country, and basketball. 

Hampshire College is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) and the Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC) and has a competitive intercollegiate athletic program that offers student-athletes an opportunity to compete on the regional and national levels. 

The USCAA suspends fall 2020 championships.

Intercollegiate Athletics

Our teams compete for championships in four sports as members of the United States Small College Athletic Association (USCAA) and the Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC). In 2011, its first year as a member school, Hampshire's women's soccer team qualified for the USCAA National Tournament and also won the YSCC League West Division title by being undefeated in regular-season play. The women's cross country team won four straight YSCC championships from 2016 to 2019. Hampshire student-athletes have received special recognition as YSCC League All-Stars for their outstanding accomplishments year after year. Athletic programs include men's and women's soccer; men's and women's cross country; men's and women's track; and men's and women's basketball.

The YSCC is made up of 15 schools from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts.
