The Athletics Staff at Loyalist maintains an open door policy for all athletes. If at any time an athlete is struggling academically, has a problem they are unsure of how to solve, or just needs someone to talk to, they are welcome to stop by the Athletics Department to chat and work to resolve their issues. If the staff can’t help with the problem directly, they will gladly connect the athlete with someone who can.

Our scholarship program gives talented student athletes financial compensation for their commitment and dedication to their respective teams & academic program. Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the coaches and Athletic Director with certain criteria in mind. To be eligible for a scholarship, athletes must maintain a passing average, maintain a high level of fitness and be a leader within the college community.

Being a Lancer is about more than just being a student athlete; you’re a part of something special that will stay with you your whole life.  The incredible connection we have with our alumni is a testament to the strength of our “Lancer Family”. Many of our athletes remain the closest of friends long after graduation and return to our annual Alumni Games in the fall.
