Sports at Kent State Tuscarawas!

On June 8, 2016, Kent State University at Tuscarawas was approved for membership in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association---USCAA---and is expanding its athletic opportunities to ALL current as well as incoming students.

In Fall 2016, Kent State Tuscarawas is fielding teams in women's volleyball, men's golf, as well as men's and women's cross country, bowling and basketball.  Baseball, softball and men's and women's track and field will begin in Spring 2017.  Wrestling and men's and women's soccer will begin in Fall 2017.

By joining the USCAA, the Golden Eagles will have the opportunity to play for National Championships as well as vie for athletic All-American awards, National All-Academic awards and more.  Many USCAA member schools are dual members of the NCAA and NAIA.  This means our athletic schedules will contain D-II and D-III schools, definitely a step up in competition!
