Norwich Athletics: we play to win

Discipline. Determination. Hard work. That defines our student-athletes inside and outside the classrooms.

Success in studies comes first. Success in competition is important too, as is good sportsmanship. Our teams are focused on being the best, and you can bet we play to win. Just ask our nationally-ranked men's and women's rugby teams, as well as our perennial powerhouse men's and women's ice hockey teams. We've also dominated conference championships most recently in football, cross country, men's and women's lacrosse and men's soccer. Norwich offers 21 athletic varsity sports, and our teams know how to stay focused.

    Students who attend the Esports Summer Camp in Fall 2022 and who subsequently enroll at Norwich University as a full-time degree-seeking student will receive a scholarship worth $2000 toward their tuition and fees during the first semester of their enrollment at Norwich.  This scholarship is not renewable, is only valid at Norwich University, and only applies to the first term of enrollment.

Students interested in receiving this scholarship must try out for the team and be accepted as a varsity team member based on academic standing, experience, ability, and fit. Attendance at our ESports camp does not guarantee being accepted as a varsity ESport team member or receiving the annual $3,000 scholarship offered to varsity team members.
