Recreation and Athletics

We are planning for a return to normal operations of the Kendall Sports and Dance Complex, as well as to varsity and club sports.

Athletic Competitions

The Mount Holyoke College Department of Physical Education and Athletics is excited to begin athletic competitions during this fall season. The New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) President’s Council recently approved the Fall 2021 COVID-19 Protocols for institutions that will be competing this fall.

Mount Holyoke College and opponents of Mount Holyoke College will adhere to strict health and safety protocols that are agreed upon by institutions in advance. These protocols will include specific masking and/or testing requirements for all individuals involved in a contest (e.g. student-athletes, coaches, administrators, officials, event workers, etc.).

Mount Holyoke College is not permitting external spectators at any venue until October 11, 2021. Only Mount Holyoke College students and employees with the appropriate lanyard will be permitted at athletic events.

Please stay tuned to the Mount Holyoke College Athletics website and each team’s schedule page for updates as the season progresses. On the schedule pages, you will also find links to view each contest via live video stream.
