By its very nature, athletics is goal-oriented. Here at Stevenson University, our goal is to win national championships. That's why we build first-class facilities, hire experienced coaches, and compete in the nation's top NCAA Division III conferences. The men's lacrosse team won the NCAA Division III national championship in 2013 while the women's lacrosse team earned its highest national ranking in the program's history. Following the success of these programs, our Department of Athletics strives to be among the best in Division III.
Our Department of Athletics supports the institutional mission by providing a distinctive, career-focused, and personalized environment for all Stevenson students. Challenging academic courses are complemented by an invitation to explore the world outside of the classroom, in the community as well as on the field of athletic competition.

Stevenson fields 13 men's sports including baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, tennis, track & field, and volleyball. Competing across three conferences, the MAC, the ECAC and the CVC, the men's sports teams annually vie for league championships and even national prominence.
In 2013, the lacrosse program captured Stevenson's first national championship in any sport and the team remains among the top teams in the country. In 2014, just four years removed from its inaugural season, the football team reached its first bowl game.
With the additions of swimming in 2014 and sand volleyball in 2015, Stevenson now fields 14 women's sports teams. In addition to the hockey and swimming squads, Stevenson supports basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track & field, and volleyball.
This year, the soccer team won its fourth conference championship in program history, and the volleyball team captured it's third consecutive Mid Atlantic Conference crown.
Beyond the varsity sports, we invite students with an itch for competition to participate in club or intramural sports. Club sports teams include baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's lacrosse, softball, and women's volleyball. Club teams practice throughout the week and compete against teams from other universities on weekends. Intramural leagues pit Stevenson students against one another in flag football and basketball as athletes battle for campus bragging rights.
In addition to organized competition, Campus Recreation presents fitness and workout programming throughout the year to support students to keep fit while at school. club and intramural sports
