Athletics | Kent State University


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

In Fall 2016, Kent State Tuscarawas began 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 began in Spring 2017.  Wrestling will begin in Fall 2017 and men's and women's soccer will be implemented soon thereafter.

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!

If you would like more information about these sports programs, contact Rob Brindley, Athletic Director, at 330-308-7447 or

For eligibility, students must be enrolled for and pass a minimum of 24 credit hours during an academic year, while being enrolled for at least 12 credit hours during semesters of competition. If you are interested in participating, complete the Athletics Interest Form as soon as possible.
