Hamline Athletics and Campus Recreation

Hamline Pipers take to the field, ice, court, and more on 22 NCAA DIII varsity teams, 20 of which compete in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC). Or, join one (or more) of dozens of intramural and club teams covering nearly every sport. Whether you’re a seasoned player or want to try something new, Hamline has plenty of opportunities to play and stay active.
