Nothing reveals character like competition. ABC's athletic philosophy is aimed at developing strong Warriors with humble hearts. Other schools often commend Appalachian Bible College teams for their sportsmanship.

Intercollegiate sports are not the only athletic experience offered on campus. Whether it's Ultimate Frisbee, Basketball, or another sport; you will love being involved in intramurals. The time spent with friends makes for great memories.

Intercollegiate Sports

The Athletic Department of Appalachian Bible College is proud to be part of the National Christian College Athletic Association. Athletes must qualify and uphold the standards and requirements of the NCCAA.

The intercollegiate sports that Appalachian Bible College offers are Men's Soccer, Ladies' Volleyball, and both Men's and Women's Basketball. Men's Soccer and Ladies' Volleyball take part in the NCCAA. Currently, the Basketball teams are not involved in the association but they play many NCCAA schools and other small Bible colleges. The Men’s Basketball team participates in the Bible College National Invitational Tournament.
