Nichols Bison Sports

Varsity sports at Nichols provide a competitive environment ideal for students learning to be successful leaders--on and off the field. Students at Nichols can participate in 19 varsity programs at the division 3 level of the NCAA. Nichols teams compete in the Commonwealth Coast Conference, New England Football Conference, and ECAC Northeast Hockey.

Varsity sports--indeed, all sports--at Nichols complement what students learn in the classroom. Club, varsity, and intramural sports provide vital teamwork and team-building experiences that hone students' abilities to plan, practice and execute personal and team goals.

While we build a state-of-the-art addition to Chalmers Field House (scheduled to open in fall 2015), students still enjoy many fitness and recreational activities, including our:

  • basketball gym
  • indoor climbing wall
  • racquetball courts
  • weight room
  • fitness room
  • outdoor basketball and volleyball courts
  • soccer fields
  • softball fields
  • four locker rooms
  • conference room and administrative offices
