Message from the Director of Athletics
Thank you for your interest in York College and the Panther Athletic Programs. Established in 1890 in the heartland of America, York College unifies the academic and social elements of the college experience with an active and exciting athletic experience. As a four-year, co-educational, residential institution, York College aspires to build a diverse and inclusive campus community that is touched and transformed by the teachings of New Testament Christianity.
With the new implementation of our developmental programs, at York College your priorities can help determine your athletic opportunities as well as scholarship opportunities. During the 2013-2014 academic year, York College will offer 12 NAIA varsity sports: baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's track and field, men's and women's soccer, softball, wrestling, and volleyball. Developmental programs and scholarships have been created for the majority of these sports as well.
York College is strongly committed to the NAIA's Champions of Character initiative. Core values associated with that initiative include: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Servant Leadership, and Sportsmanship. Participation in intercollegiate athletics is seen in the relationship of developing whole persons, and as such is integrally related to the overall educational experience at York College. Intercollegiate athletics afford student-athletes the opportunity to develop character, leadership qualities, and responsible decision-making.
York College is a founding member of the Midlands Collegiate Athletics Conference (MCAC), which competes in Region IV of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Other member schools include: Bellevue University (NE), Central Baptist College (AR), Central Christian College (KS), College of St. Mary (NE), College of the Ozarks (MO), Haskell Indian Nations University (KS), Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OK), Southwestern Christian University (OK), and and Waldorf College (IA).
York College provides an equitable, diverse, and competitive intercollegiate athletic program that is properly administered, educationally sound, and a resource for enhancing the entire campus.
We hope you will take the time to learn more about us.
