The Adamson Soaring Falcons are the collegiate men's varsity teams of Adamson University that play in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines which is the mother sports league of the Falcon. 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 teams also participate in other sports leagues such as the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup, Fr. Martin's Cup, University Games and Shakey's V-League.

Team mascot and colors[edit]

The school's choice of the Falcon as 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.

Blue and White are Adamson's official school colors.

Increasing participation[edit]

The mother sports league of the Adamson Falcons is the UAAP which has tournaments in fifteen sports. Adamson does not participate in all fifteen sports or in all divisions of a sport. This is now being addressed by the school authorities. They have set as a goal the full participation of the school in all tournaments of the UAAP.

In Season 76 (2013–14), Adamson University fielded for the first time a high school team in the UAAP girls' division. This high school girls team participates in the sport of volleyball and are called the Lady Baby Falcons. Also in Season 76, Adamson fielded teams to the men's and women's divisions of the swimming tournament. Then in Season 77 (2014–15), Adamson fielded a football team in the men's division. In Season 79(2016-2017), Adamson fielded for the first time a team for boy's volleyball tournament. More teams will be fielded in the near future to achieve the goal of full participation
