Athletics and Recreation
Opened in August 2020, key facilities of the Harold Alfond Athletics and Recreation Center include: the only Olympic-sized Myrtha international competition pool in the Northeast; an ice arena; a 200-meter indoor track; a climbing wall; nine squash courts; dance, yoga, and meditation studios; and one of the largest fitness centers at any liberal arts college.
Compete at the highest levels while building relationships and habits of mind you’ll carry with you always. Whether varsity athletes, club sport devotees, or intramural enthusiasts, our students don’t have to choose between preparing for the future and enjoying their present.
For details about the athletic recruitment process, please review the NESCAC Admissions Statement, which is shared among all colleges in our conference.
Colby owns 10 acres on Messalonskee Lake, seven miles from the campus. Students have full access to facilities, including a picnic area with charcoal grills, a small beach for swimming, croquet, horseshoes, and two small bath/changing houses.
