Roberts announced in January that swimming will become an intercollegiate sport beginning in fall 2017. The team will use the College’s swimming pool in the Voller Athletic Center for practices and dual meets. It will also compete in larger regional invitational meets.
Roberts was ranked 44th in The 50 Best Christian College & University Athletic Programs for 2016. The addition of swimming aligns with planned athletic program expansions and makes Roberts just the third Christian college with the sport in the Northeast. The College will search for a head coach and recruit male and female student-athletes with competitive swim experience to join the program this fall.
