Inside Athletics

Visitor's Guide


Welcome to Heidelberg Athletics
In 1892, Heidelberg University varsity athletics got its start when the football team defeated Findlay University 20-0. Since that day, thousands of games have been played with Heidelberg claiming its fair share of wins and championships. But one factor has not changed … Heidelberg’s commitment to the student-athlete.

Heidelberg offers 20 varsity sports in its athletic program. The Berg competes in the tough Ohio Athletic Conference comprised of NCAA Division III Institutions. The men have opportunities in football, soccer, cross country, golf, track (indoor and outdoor), baseball, tennis, wrestling, and basketball. Women have the opportunity for involvement as members of the soccer, volleyball, cross country, track (indoor or outdoor), softball, tennis, golf, or basketball teams for the Berg. Cheerleading is also recognized as a varsity sport.

Visiting Team Information
It is our pleasure to host the many athletic teams from the Ohio Athletic Conference as well as other conferences and beyond. Our goal is to make the typical provisions for teams and the traveling Athletic Training personnel. The Ohio Athletic Conference outlines various minimum provisions for visiting teams. We will provide water, injury ice and bio hazard supplies. We may also provide cups. We do ask teams to supply their own water bottles and towels. We recommend contacting our staff to make us aware of any unusual requests or needs.  More...
