A Letter from the Athletic Director

Welcome to Shorter College Athletics!

On behalf of the Shorter College Athletic Department, I would like to thank you for your interest in our school and its intercollegiate athletic program. Currently, Shorter athletics consists of 17 highly competitive sports teams for both men and women. In time, it is our goal to become one of the premier NAIA programs in the country. It is also our hope to challenge student-athletes spiritually, academically and athletically so that they may be successful in their future endeavors. With a program based on faith, integrity, excellence, and scholarship, this athletic department is dedicated and committed to providing our student-athletes with the best college experience in the nation.

Shorter is also proud of its long-term relationship with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (the "NAIA"). Founded in 1952, the NAIA is the governing body for small college and university athletics. The NAIA has more than 50,000 student-athletes participating in nearly 300 member colleges and universities through the United States. Divided into 14 regions, the NAIA offers 23 championships in 13 sports.

Please enjoy your tour of our website and be sure to check the calendar for upcoming athletic events. Again, thanks for your interest in Shorter College and your continued support of our athletic program, our coaches and our student- athletes.

Go Hawks!
