Welcome to Spartanburg Methodist College, “Home of the Pioneers”!

Spartanburg Methodist College has a strong history of excellence in athletics.  SMC has more than 250 student athletes that compete on 15 athletic teams, and a cheerleading squad.

The SMC coaching staff is experienced and dedicated to their students and their sport, leading our teams to excellence in all areas.  Our mission is to enhance Academics, Values, Athletics, Commitment, and Citizenship for all student athletes.  

SMC competes at the Division 1 level of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).  As a two-year institution, SMC athletes have the opportunity to be leaders as soon as they arrive on campus both in the playing arena, around campus and in our community.

During the 2013-2014 season, the SMC men's and women's cross country, tennis, track and field, wrestling, softball, and baseball all represented SMC in their respective NJCAA National Championships.  

Many of SMC’s student athletes have continued their athletic participation and education at four-year colleges and universities such as Auburn, Syracuse, Florida Atlantic, Clemson, Francis Marion, Georgia Southern, West Georgia, Limestone College, College of Charleston, Converse College, USC Columbia and USC Upstate.  SMC athletes are also committed to the Spartanburg community, which is demonstrated in the thousands of service and volunteer hours they log each year with area schools and organizations.

As the only two-year, private residential college in South Carolina, SMC offers a unique opportunity for students to excel in academics and athletics.  SMC’s focus is excellence in both areas: athletics and academics, to prepare our student athletes to move on to their junior and senior years at four-year institutions.

On the playing field or in preparation for a career, SMC is dedicated to the success of its students! “GO PIONEERS!”
