Athletics

Welcome to MCC Athletics!

At MCC, we are dedicated to providing you with a well-rounded college experience. As a student athlete you can gain valuable skills and experiences that will benefit you both on and off of the field.

MCC Athletics provides you with many opportunities to engage in competitive and recreational sports. 

As a student you can choose from:

  • Club and intramural sports participation
  • Varsity competition teams
  • One-on-one or small group recreation pick-up games

By joining the Athletics Program (Go Nighthawks!), you can gain valuable skills and experiences that will benefit you, and your career path, both on and off the field. 

Clubs & Intramural Sports

MCC offers a variety of club and intramural sports such as Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer and eSports for both men and women. These sports have been carefully selected based on the interests and preferences of our student body. We encourage everyone to join one or more of these clubs and be a part of our growing Nighthawks athletic community.

Competition with Neighboring Colleges

As a club or varsity sports participant you will have the opportunity to compete against other colleges in the surrounding area. This not only fosters healthy competition but also provides the chance for you to showcase your skills and represent MCC. We believe this helps create a sense of camaraderie among our athletes and fosters strong bonds within the college community.

Joining the YSCC

MCC’s ultimate goal is to become a part of the prestigious Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC). The YCCC conference includes community colleges from all over New England and provides opportunities for both competitive and recreational play. We are committed to working hard towards meeting all requirements needed to join the conference and are excited about the potential for our athletes to compete at a higher level.

Varsity Competition Teams

MCC is excited to announce the expansion of its Athletics Program with new varsity competition teams in Men’s Basketball, Women’s Volleyball and eSports!
