How we think about Collegiate Athletics

At George Fox, athletics is not separate from our mission; it’s an integral part of it. The field and the court are also classrooms. Just like professors, George Fox coaches live out the Be Known promise by mentoring and building relationships with students while also pushing them to achieve their full potential. Our vision is to have the most formative athletic experience in the country, using competition to sharpen the character of each student-athlete.

Bruins are fierce competitors, and we firmly believe that being competitive and being Christ-like are not incompatible goals. We pursue excellence, and we test our excellence against others while keeping God’s bigger picture in mind.

There's no better place to play Division III sports than George Fox University.

Whether or not students choose to participate in a collegiate sport, all students have the opportunity to compete in intramural team sports. Our intramurals program gives undergraduate students an outlet for friendly competition and a forum to build relationships, foster teamwork and create memories. Intramural sports are often played in the Hadlock Student Center. Sports offered vary from year to year, but often include:

  • Basketball (3-on-3 and 5-on-5)
  • Dodgeball
  • Flag football
  • Floor hockey
  • Kickball
  • Pickleball
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
