Athletics is an exciting part of the student experience at USM. Few institutions can match the success of the Huskies' nationally recognized non-scholarship athletic program. The Huskies compete in the Little East Conference, an eight-member conference comprised of public institutions in New England and recognized as one of the most competitive Division III conferences in the nation. We have 22 intercollegiate sports and countless individual performers who have participated in national championship competitions. Annually, several USM teams achieve a national ranking and qualify for post-season play sponsored by the NCAA or ECAC.
USM student-athletes are supported in their efforts to excel with a strong system of academic support services which include mandatory study hours for first year students and progress checks with University faculty members. The Department of Athletics offers an 18-credit hour coaching certificate program that prepares individuals to coach at all levels.
