Briar Cliff University has the best athletics department where everybody puts his own effort to reach success. The athletes work hard every day, they have planned training times, have gym training using the school facilities and take their meals together. The performance of the teams is excellent. The department of athletics releases at every start of the year the sports schedule, our teams are M/W soccer, M/W volleyball, M/W golf, football, M cross country, M/W basketball, softball. We have also a fan club, where any fan can sign up to support our Chargers. The Briar Cliff University promotes greatly athletic activities.

We have a ton of talented athletes at this school, but our weightlifting facilities aren't in the best condition and don't have ample size for the large number of athletes BCU houses. The weight room for all students, including non-athletes, has barely any free weights or lifting machines and a lot of cardio machines. The cardio machines don't all work though, which easily puts a damper on the work out. I believe coaches do their best to design a program around our small facilities, but as our athlete population grows, I believe the program should grow with it. Speaking of coaches, many of the coaches for football are hot-headed, which leaves many of my friends discouraged and causes them to lose their love for the sport.
