The Westminster College athletics website includes current sports schedules and game results, plus information on student athletes, support athletics, staff, facilities, and photographs.

The Westminster College Intercollegiate Athletics program is an integral part of campus life serving more than 250 student-athletes annually. The athletic program has experienced both regional and national success over the years, with national championships, national tournament appearances, conference titles, All-Conference and All-American academic and athletic honors. The athletic program has a rich tradition, storied history and many athletic alumni dating back to 1928.

The Griffins athletic program consists of 17 sport teams and is a member of the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) Division I level. Men's and Women's Basketball, Cross Country & Track, Golf, Women's Volleyball and Women's Soccer compete in the Frontier Conference with schools from Montana and Idaho. Men's Soccer competes as an NAIA independent. Men's Lacrosse is a member of the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA) and competes in the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Conference (RMLC). Women's Lacrosse competes in the Rocky Mountain Women’s Lacrosse League (RMWLL) which is part of U.S. Lacrosse and the Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA). Men's and Women's Alpine Skiing compete as members of the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association (RMISA), while the Snowboarding teams are members of the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA).

Dumke Field, originally Dane Hansen Memorial Stadium, was opened October 2, 1949 by college president Robert D. Steele (1939 to 1952). It was a gift of the George Hansen family in memory of a son and brother, Lt. Dane Hansen, Class of 1940, who lost his life in World War II. Having had seating for 1,200 attendants, the stadium has been the college soccer and activities field, commencement green, and later paved parking facility. In Fall 2005 it was transformed into a 2-level parking structure, with an elevated soccer/athletic field rebuilt on top.

The Dolores Dore Eccles Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center, a three-story, 84,500-square-foot facility houses a swimming pool, full complement of fitness equipment, a weight room and exercise studio, and a technically challenging, 46-foot climbing wall. Above a field house that holds 1,200 spectators is a suspended running track with a high-tech surface and corner windows with views. The field house includes locker rooms, team meeting rooms, and ample equipment storage space for our popular Griffin teams' intramural and intercollegiate sports, including men's and women's basketball and our history-making women's volleyball team who won the Frontier Conference Championship and finished 5th in NAIA Region 1. The third floor of the facility contains the Center for Nursing Education, the new home to the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.
