BSU has a strong athletic tradition, which has grown to include 22 intercollegiate varsity sports teams, a full range of intramural athletic programs, and a number of club sports programs.
The Edward C. Swenson Athletic Fields are used by a variety of student athletic teams. The football field is surrounded by a running track and there are also fields for baseball, softball, and soccer. Tennis courts are conveniently located just a short walk from a number of student residence halls and academic facilities.
Alumni Park is a baseball/softball complex situated next to Swenson Athletic Fields. The complex was a project of the BSU Foundation, an alumni organization dedicated to the growth and enrichment of the Bridgewater State University community.
The John J. Kelly Gymnasium (located next to the Science Building) is a great place to unwind after a day's worth of classes. Swim in the Olympic-sized swimming pool, shoot some hoops in one of the two gyms, or lift weights in the weight room. The Human Performance Laboratory, where extensive cardiovascular research is carried on, is also located in this building.
