The Landmark College Athletic, Fitness, and Recreation Department enhances students’ academic experience though involvement in sports and fitness activities. Landmark College’s athletic, intramural, recreation, and outdoor programs provide opportunities for participation through a wide array of offerings, leading to a holistic and engaging experience that enriches the lives of all members of our community.
Our emphasis is on safe, respectful, and fair competition as well as a commitment to supporting diversity and gender equality. We value the lessons that come through participation in our programs: teamwork and a commitment to others, leadership and the development of integrity, honesty and ethical behavior, academic success, sportsmanship (including winning with humility and losing with grace), and the development of healthy habits to last a lifetime.
In addition to our Athletics, Fitness, and Recreation programming, Landmark College also offers Physical Education courses.

The Charles Drake Athletic Field opened in time for the Fall 2017 season. The regulation-size soccer and lacrosse turf field is composed of a natural, environmentally-friendly, state-of-the-art infill material, allowing games to be played over an extended period, from early spring through early winter. There is also a field house with locker rooms, restrooms, and a concession area.
The new field is named for Dr. Charles Drake, the founder of Landmark College and a Harvard-trained educator. Drake had severe dyslexia, and his mission was to establish a college that would meet the needs of students like him. Today, Landmark College continues to serve students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, as well as students with ADHD and autism spectrum disorder.
The field is available for rental by soccer and lacrosse teams, schools, and community groups. For rental information, contact Kari Post, Landmark College’s Director of Athletics, Fitness, and Recreation, at 802-387-6790 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
