Chapman is not a sports-oriented school. Although there are some good teams, there is a lack of school spirit and student support for sports. The only sporting event that a large number of students attend is the homecoming game, and even that is lacking in spirit. Chapman is trying to increase spirit by having a pep rally before the game, but it still hasn't succeeded in getting students excited about sports. Although homecoming is the biggest game of the year, football is not the best team at Chapman. Lacrosse, water polo, and baseball have the best reputation and are the most talented teams.
Chapman students are athletic and like to exercise, so many join intramural sports, such as ultimate Frisbee, tennis, or soccer. If students want to participate in sports without a big time commitment, they can join a handful of athletic clubs, like daily running group. Chapman's state-of-the-art athletic facilities are available to all students. Chapman student like to look good, so they usually spend as couple hours a week taking advantage of the fully equipped gym, track, and Olympic-sized pool.
