At GW, we believe a world-class university deserves a world-class athletics program. Our goal is to build champions in the classroom, in the community, and in competition.

With 27 varsity programs and more than 30 club and intramural offerings, we engage our students, our campus community, our alumni, and our fans through the spirit of healthy living and competition. With your help, we can take GW Athletics to new heights.

Take Facilities to the Next Level

Recent renovations made to the Barcroft Baseball Park, Mount Vernon Athletics Complex, and the Charles E. Smith Center were made possible, in part, by philanthropy. Our fields and courts are used regularly by intercollegiate teams, club sports, intramural teams, and recreational groups. These facilities need frequent upgrades to match the level of competitions that they host.
