Athletes at Hollins

About 100 current Hollins students participate in intercollegiate play - testimony to the quality and variety of Hollins' programs and facilities. Today, our eight intercollegiate sports, three club sports, and other recreational and instructional programs continue to challenge and reward our students.


Hollins' basketball, golf, lacrosse, riding, soccer, swimming, tennis, and volleyball teams are members of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC), the second-largest multisport National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III conference in the nation, while our two-time national champion riding team successfully competes with schools many times the size of Hollins as part of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA).
