Stevenson University is a member of the NCAA Division III and offers a wide variety of sports for both men and women. Known as the "Mustangs," the university fields the following teams for men and women: basketball, soccer, cross country, dance, lacrosse, golf, cheerleading, volleyball, and tennis; for men only, baseball; and for women only, field hockey and softball. Most of the University's sports compete in the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC). Formed in 1989, the CAC is a nine-member coalition of four-year, co-educational institutions. All the institutions are located in close geographic proximity and have similar educational and athletic philosophies. The men's volleyball team competes in the North East Collegiate Volleyball Association, while Stevenson's men's and women's golf teams compete as independents.
All student athletes are encouraged to compete for the varsity athletic teams and also to be multi-sport athletes. A mid-summer call for tryouts will be advertised on <www.gomustangsports.com> with instructions on how to comply with both NCAA Compliance and the Athletic Training Guidelines. Students are eligible to earn a physical education credit by participating on a team or serving as a manager of a team.
