Varsity Athletic Teams

The Newark Campus Athletic Department provides athletic, recreation, and fitness opportunities for students of Central Ohio Technical College and The Ohio State University at Newark. Our student-athletes participate in competition through the Ohio Regional Campus Conference. The teams involve approximately 100 students in varsity athletic activities annually. Our league is based in the regional campus system within Ohio, but competition also includes four-year and two-year campuses with more extensive programs.

Athletic teams help to attract and retain students who are interested in our academic programs and for whom participation on a competitive athletic team is a strong bonus. The campus follows the eligibility guidelines of the ORCC, which requires members of athletic teams to maintain a 1.7 grade point average and be enrolled for a minimum of 7 credit hours during the semester of athletic participation.

Academic accomplishments are stressed; the ORCC All-Academic Team is compiled each term and consists of student-athletes who have carried at least 12 credit hours and earned a minimum GPA of 3.0 while participating in their sport.

Intramural Sports

Intramural sports provide an opportunity for students to participate on a team and compete throughout the semester with other students. For more information on Newark's intramural program click here.
