Hit the weight room. Take a jog along the Russell W. Nature Trail. Or join an intramural broomball team with friends.
When it's time to get out and move at Bethel, you've got options, but not just because we know that everybody likes to work out differently. We believe a well-rounded education means growing in spirit, mind, and body.
If you're serious about your sport, Bethel offers 18 NCAA Division III athletic programs, all within the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC).
Bethel Student Government (BSG) sponsors club sports, including broomball, hockey, lacrosse, and rugby. You'll compete with other colleges and universities in the Twin Cities area.
Intramurals (Co-ed Rec)
Led by students, co-ed intramural sports run throughout the year for those who, perhaps, want a little more fun and a little less competition.
Disc Golf & Nature Trail
We're big into "frolf"-or disc golf. Our campus is home to one of the best disc golf courses in the Twin Cities offering a dynamic 9-hole round that bends along Lake Valentine and through the wooded hills on the north end of campus.
The 1-mile Russell W. Johnson Nature Trail winds its way around the perimeter of campus and passes along Lake Valentine. Enjoy some peace and quiet-take a short jog alone or with a friend.
Check out Bethel's sports and rec facilities, including:
- Indoor and outdoor tennis courts
- Racquetball courts
- Indoor basketball courts and track
- Weight room
New Wellness Center
Construction on a new Wellness Center in the heart of campus is underway and is expected to be finished in time for the start of the next school year. It will have 22,500 square feet on 3 levels, a 6,000 square foot weight facility, 45 cardio machines, 30 yards of indoor turf, and room for the biokinetics program.
