The Caltech Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation is committed to the well-being of the whole student, combining physical, social, and emotional skill development to further enhance the cultivation of a sound mind and body.

The athletics department offers individual and group options for participation in intercollegiate, club, intramural, and physical education sports. Caltech fields 20 NCAA Division III varsity sports and is a founding member of the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC).

Our mascot, the Beaver (nature's engineer), epitomizes the student athlete, excelling both in the classroom and on the field of play.
