Men’s/women’s basketball, tennis, cross country, golf, soccer, and men’s baseball, women’s softball, and women’s volleyball are teams sponsored by Mount Aloysius as members of the NCAA-DIII and of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference. Open tryouts are available for all teams. Please contact the Athletic Director for information. Students are invited to join in the school spirit by rooting for the Mount Aloysius athletic teams as they challenge many worthy rivals at home and on the road.
The philosophy of the Athletic Department of Mount Aloysius College is based upon the recognition of the positive benefits of competition and participation. Sportsmanship, teamwork, self-discipline and self-sacrifice are primary attributes that are gained through athletic competition.
Academic achievement goes hand-in-hand with athletic achievement. Athletic Department personnel must support and promote the total growth of the student-athlete. Student-athletes are students first. Student-athletes should be encouraged to immerse themselves in all positive aspects of the college experience. Athletic participation should enrich the student-athlete’s experience, not limit it. Student-athlete well being is a primary focus and, through athletic experience, character growth, and healthful lifestyles will be promoted.
The Mount Aloysius College Athletic Department supports gender equity and strives for equal support and success in all departmental offerings. Mount Aloysius embraces the philosophy of the NCAA-III and celebrates the efforts and growth of its student-athletes under the guidelines and regulations of the NCAA-III.
Varsity athletes are required to submit completed health forms to the Health Services Office prior to the start of the season in order to participate in any given sport. All student-athletes must carry health insurance. They must present their health insurance card to the Health Services office prior to the start of their practice season. All injuries not covered under the primary health coverage (i.e. dental or vision) will be the responsibility of the student-athlete. If injury is considered catastrophic and the College’s insurance is used, the student athlete will be responsible for the deductible ($1500). They also must complete the physical examination requirement and have all necessary health forms filled out in advance of their first participation. If all health requirements are not completed, the student-athlete will not be cleared to practice or play. A physical examination must be done within six months prior to participation by the student-athlete in order to be acceptable and paperwork from that physical must be forwarded to the Health Services Office.
Student Athlete Code of Conduct
Being a student-athlete at Mount Aloysius College brings responsibilities as well as privileges. As a student-athlete, you are a representative of your team, the Athletic Department and Mount Aloysius College. Your behavior, both on- and off-campus, and in and out of season, creates an image that is a direct reflection on yourself, your team and the College. It is expected that student athletes know, understand and honor the College Code of Conduct for student athletes and demonstrate good citizenship, sportsmanship and integrity during competition, on campus and in the community.
In the event a student-athlete fails to meet the stated expectations of the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, they may be subject to the following sanctions according to the degree and number of violations.
Use of Athletic Facilities and Fields
The facilities and athletic fields are available to students, faculty, alumni, and staff of Mount Aloysius. They are also available to family members of the College faculty and staff. Family members must be at least 12 years of age, and if under the age of 21, must be accompanied by an adult. The facility and athletic fields are also available for community use. For more information on use guidelines, please see the Athletic Director.
The basketball court and fitness center are not available during team practices. Practice times are posted in the gym. On game nights, all recreational areas of the gym are closed.
A. Cumulative Grade Point Average
By the start of the fifth full-time semester (or third year of athletics eligibility), the student-athlete shall be enrolled in a course of study toward fulfilling a major.
Mount Aloysius College chooses not to grant waivers to any student. We believe that a student who is at risk academically should concentrate on his/her studies. The student will be eligible for athletic competition again only after his/her cumulative grade point average reaches a 2.0 or higher.
D. Mid-Semester Reinstatement
It is possible for a student-athlete who is ineligible at the start of a semester to become re-eligible mid-semester, e.g.:
The purpose of the program is to provide the student-athlete with structure and guidance for improving their academic performance. The Program Coordinator will monitor the student’s progress through regular meetings with the student athlete and through consultations with faculty and staff as necessary and appropriate.
Participation in the program is required based on the following criteria:
(Note: at the start of the third semester, all athletes must maintain a cumulative grade point average of a 2.00 or better to be eligible for athletic competition.)
