Facilities The Jean Yawkey Center gymnasium is home to the Saints for both practice and competition. With bleacher seating for up to 1400, game nights become the place to be for the EC Superfans, the dance team and the cheerleaders. The Yawkey Center also includes a state-of-the-art training facility, as does St. Joseph Hall. Both fitness centers are updated with new platforms, racks, free weights, and plate-loaded equipment. St. Joseph Hall also includes a separate cardio room.

“Emmanuel College provides an amazing opportunity for student- athletes to achieve success in the classroom, to compete athletically in a comprehensive NCAA Division III environment, and to fully participate in our campus community on a daily basis. Our coaches totally support the academic mission of the college, and our student-athletes continue to make us proud on an annual basis.” Pam Roecker Director of Athletics & Recreation Emmanuel College
