NCAA Eligibility and Resources

NDB strongly encourages all college-bound student athletes to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center as Juniors if they are planning to participate in college athletics. Early registration promotes positive planning and involvement, bypasses the last-minute rush, and helps college-bound student athletes avoid issues that may delay their academic and amateur certifications.

Our Facilities

The Beach Volleyball Facility was built in 2019 and totals four sand courts. The facility is located next to the softball field on the southwest corner of campus. Our strength and conditioning program also utilized the beach courts for workouts.

NDB practices and plays home matches at College of San Mateo. The six courts overlook San Mateo and the East Bay.

The softball field is located just outside the Moore Pavilion. The field also houses a batting cage down the left field line and a pitchers bullpen behind the centerfield fence.

NDB travels to Serra High School each day during Water Polo and Swim seasons. Serra's pool is a 38 meter, 550,000 gallon Infinity Pool capable of hosting major swim meets and water polo tournaments. There is also an aquatics building with both male and female locker room/shower facilities.

NDB utilizes the Notre Dame de Namur University Koret Field. The turf field is located east of the high school, near the main entrance.

The Moore Pavilion is one of the best gyms on the peninsula. Our volleyball and basketball teams utilize the Moore Pavilion.

Located in the Moore Pavilion, the Athletic Training Room is available for NDB student-athletes needing assistance with any injury/illness that may affect their participation in their respective sport. The room is equipped with taping and treatment tables, cardio and rehabilitation equipment as well as hot, cold and therapeutic modalities.

NDB travels to Serra High School each day during track season for both practices and meets. Serra's state of the art track includes an all-weather track and turf surface.

Located on the basement floor next to the swimming pool, the weight room consists of weight machines, free weights, cardio machines and a plyometric station.
