Middlebury athletics: In pursuit of excellence, both on and off the playing field.

At Middlebury, we recognize that participation in athletics builds character and leadership skills. Our athletes learn the values of hard work, dedication, cooperation, and the importance of fair play and teamwork. Middlebury’s superb coaching and first-rate facilities create an atmosphere that encourages student-athletes to develop as players and as individuals.

The athletics program at Middlebury places paramount importance on helping students lead well-balanced lives. Comprehensive programs, which include varsity, club, and intramural participation, offer athletic opportunities to all. We stress good health, physical fitness, and fitness activities that may be pursued throughout life.


Middlebury is highly successful in fielding exceptional athletes who are also exceptional scholars. Our varsity and club sports teams are highly competitive nationally, frequently winning regional and national championships. Our coaches, recognized widely for their coaching abilities and leadership, work closely with athletes to help them reach their full potential.
