At Marywood, we believe you can't separate spiritual awareness and intellectual growth from physical activity. We are deeply committed to helping students realize their full potential through the values they gain from being part of a team and engaging in physical fitness activities. Several recent additions honor our commitment to wellness: our synthetic turf field, aquatics center, and newest sport rugby.
Our multipurpose synthetic turf field features lights and a state-of-the-art sound system. It serves as home field for our soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, and, soon, rugby teams. Our new men's and women's rugby teams will take the field for the first time in the 2018-19 academic year, bringing the total number of varsity sports offered at Marywood to 22. Rugby has been growing in popularity across the country. Currently, we are seeking gifts to help us resurface the 97,000 square foot field.
Marywood's aquatics center features an 8-lane, NCAA-compliant pool with 3-meter and 1-meter diving platforms. It has enabled us to establish men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams, and it will support aquatics classes in our health and physical education curriculum along with community recreational opportunities.
