While students have played disc golf at Lyon since 2008 when an 18-hole disc golf course was installed on campus, this upcoming season marks the ﬁrst time the institution will have an ofﬁcial club team for the sport. The Scots are now poised to compete throughout the regular season in hopes of participating in the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships, held each spring in North Augusta, South Carolina.
All Scots disc golf club members receive ofﬁcial Lyon gear, scholarship opportunities, and financial assistance that goes toward team travel and team competition in disc golf tournaments.
As part of this new club sport, you’ll have the opportunity to create a culture and build a program. Outside of competition, disc golfers at Lyon will find a close-knit community, a beautiful campus, and rigorous academics. Lyon College strives to craft a holistic educational experience that engages the mind, body, and soul and that emphasizes service. You’ll leave here with the tools to craft your future and to make the world a better place.
Our school is looking for current students, future students, and transfer students with a desire to compete, a passion to learn, and a heart for the outdoors.

Lyon College President Dr. W. Joseph King announced the addition of men’s lacrosse and introduced the team’s new head coach, Monty Curtis, at a press conference Thursday, December 6, 2018.
The College will apply for membership in the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA), a league of eight college lacrosse conferences. Lyon will petition to join the MCLA’s Lone Star Alliance (LSA), which consists of teams in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas. The team would start competing in 2021 with potential for NAIA affiliation in the future.
Lyon College is committed to its mountain biking and road cycling club program and is excited to officially offer scholarships to its club team members.
The program welcomes both competitive and casual lovers of mountain biking and road cycling. Through it, the school hopes to expand the understanding of the outdoors through bike riding, adventuring, and other activities. All club cyclists and mountain bikers receive ofﬁcial Lyon kits, access to the college bike shop, scholarship opportunities, and financial assistance for traveling and competing in cycling events.
Collegiate cycling, a sport with team or individual competitions for both men and women, is one of the fastest growing facets of American cycling today. Lyon College cyclers compete in the South Central Collegiate Cycling Conference (SCCCC), one of eleven conferences that make up USA Cycling. The conference includes participants from schools in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. By participating in mountain biking and road cycling during the regular season, Lyon hopes to quality for the USA Cycling Collegiate National Championships.
Equipped with trails fit to build endurance, test limits, and improve performance, the Lyon campus and surrounding areas also offer plenty to do outside of competitions. Thanks to a generous grant from the Arkansas State Highway Department and the Arkansas Recreational Trails Program, Lyon built the Lyon College Bluff Trails along the northern border of campus in 2010. The Upper Bluff Trail is a 1.3-mile, intermediate-level bike trail, and the Lower Bluff Trail challenges bikers a bit as a 1.5-mile, advanced-level trail.
With the Bluff Trails in your backyard during the week, the weekends may call for a trip to other biking spots in central Arkansas such as Wooly Hollow State Park near Greenbrier, Arkansas, or the Syllamo Trails in Mountain View, Arkansas. Lyon’s Education and Adventure Program (LEAP) sometimes organizes trips to these areas.
Lyon is positioned to develop a respected cycling program, and we hope you can be part of it. We are searching for current students, future students, and transfer students with a heart for the outdoors and passion to hit the trails. If you are interested in being part of Lyon's cycling program, let us hear from you!
