The basketball team has countless televised games throughout the country and plays in the new Prudential Center in Newark. Seton Hall offers a variety of varsity sports that all compete in the NCAA Big East conference, such as baseball, softball, track, swimming, volleyball, golf, soccer, and tennis. The track and field team is led by John Moon, arguably one of the best short distance coaches in the nation. He has coached the United States Olympic Team to a few gold medals.
The real sports excitement on campus comes from intramurals. The intramural office offers more than eight different intramural sports throughout the year. In the fall, Seton Hall could care less that they don’t have a football program, because intramural flag football captures the campus. The league is split up into three different divisions, two all-male leagues and one coed league. Who needs a varsity football team? While other schools are watching barbaric football games on a freezing cold Saturday afternoons, the intramural athletes at Seton Hall play their hearts out for the love of the game on cool fall evenings. In the spring, the campus turns its attention toward the basketball and soccer intramurals. Soccer has been known to bring in more than 60 teams involved, with each team containing a minimum of five people. While Seton Hall may not win a Big East title anytime soon, the intramural sports on campus will make you feel like you are competing for the NCAA title.
