Say this about Nassau CC: there's never a shortage of games going on here.
Football, volleyball, men's and women's soccer, tennis, cross country, wrestling, bowling, indoor track, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, golf, spring track and field, men's and women's lacrosse--NCC's sports program rivals that of most four-year schools.
And the teams are almost always good.
NCC's football team has had winning seasons, including several undefeated ones, for more than two decades. Men's lacrosse has won more than 20 national titles and is a regular in NJCAA title games. The wrestling team has not only won two NJCAA championships in recent years but produced several All Americans in different weight classes. And just last year, the men's basketball team won a division title while the men's tennis team won a national championship.
That's not all.
Nassau's intramural sports program offers an array of athletic activities, beginning in September and running through May. A typical semester features flag football, dodgeball, and three-on-three basketball, along with a host of co-ed team sports--volleyball, tennis, racquetball, soccer, and handball. There are also individual competitions, such as three-point and slam dunk contests, open to the entire student body.
Most intramural activities take place in the Phys Ed Complex during club hours (11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m.) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It doesn't cost anything to participate, and you don't have to be a world class athlete--just someone interested in fun, fitness, and friendship.
You can find out more about both intercollegiate and intramural sports, including schedules and start times, at http://www.ncc.edu/studentlife under "Athletics" and "Intramural Sports." The action gets going early (the first weeks of September in most cases)--so don't miss out.
Whether you're a diehard fan, a gym rat, or just somebody who likes to stay active, you'll find a home in NCC's Phys Ed Complex. Chances are you'll also make some good friends there, students who enjoy competition and whose idea of a good time is to work up a sweat.
