Athletics | Kent State Tuscarawas | Kent State University


Kent State University at Tuscarawas is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association---USCAA---and has greatly expanded its intercollegiate athletic opportunities for students over the last couple of years.

The campus currently fields teams in baseball, softball, wrestling, volleyball, as well as men's and women's basketball, cross country, golf and track & field.  Women's bowling and competitive cheer & dance were launched in Fall 2018.

Membership in the USCAA has given the Golden Eagles the opportunity to play for National Championships in multiple sports 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, D-III and NAIA schools---definitely a step up in competition!
