Athletics

We believe Regent students are made for strength — to train hard and go big — whether inside the classroom or on the playing field. It’s part of your calling to represent Christ in every area of life. Through our growing athletics program, students develop teamwork skills that position them for academic and career success. As a Division I South Region member institution in the National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCAA), Regent offers opportunities for our student athletes, the Regent Royals, to participate in intercollegiate sports, club sports and intramural sports. The construction of a new Athletic Complex with state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor facilities will foster an explosion of team spirit, while giving our athletes a venue to glorify God through sports.
