Athletics at The Citadel
The Citadel Athletics Department has 16 Varsity Sport Teams. The Citadel is affiliated with NCAA Division I athletics and in football the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA). The school's conference affiliation is the Southern Conference, of which they have been a member since 1936.
Intramural, Club and Recreational Athletics (ICRA) provide opportunities for all students to participant in extracurricular sports. Intramurals are an integral part of cadet life with year-long competitive activities in individual sports and cadet company team sports. The club sports program responds to changing interests of students with opportunities for extracurricular instruction and limited extramural competition in sports not governed by the Southern Conference. The purpose of the recreational athletics program is to provide and promote safe and healthful means for exercise, physical fitness, and recreational pursuits for students, faculty and staff. ICRA is a division of the Department of Health, Exercise and Sport Science.
