The Adamson Soaring Falcons are the collegiate men's varsity teams of Adamson University that play in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines. The collegiate women's varsity teams are called the Lady Falcons while the high school varsity teams are called the Baby Falcons.
The University's varsity athletes participate in different sports. The Falcons teams are members of various leagues including Shakey's V-League, Fr. Martin's Cup, Filoil Flying V Pre-Season Cup and University Games. The men's basketball team also participates in the PBA D-League under the brand name of Freego Jeans.
Mascot and Colors[edit | edit source]
The school's choice of the Falcon for its mascot is symbolic. Just as the Falcon soars high before inflicting harm on its prey, so do the varsity teams of Adamson soar high to defeat their opponents in a sporting event. The Falcon was adopted in reference to the live falcons that the school takes care of.
Blue and White are Adamson's official school colors.
