Maintaining physical, mental, and spiritual health while in Seminary is an important discipline to keep in the ongoing formation of Christian leaders. VTS makes every effort to aid students in their wellness practices. The food at Coffield Refectory provides ample choice for dietary needs, including options for vegetarians, vegans, and those who require a gluten-free diet.
Informal team sports are organized by students annually. Football, soccer, softball, and basketball are mainstays during the academic year, with teams often traveling to weekend tournaments with other seminaries. Though the Seminary does not have a pool, the Chinquapin Recreation Center (about a mile from the Seminary) does have one and welcomes Alexandria residents for a minimal charge.
