About Athletics  - "Vision, excitement, and victory"

THE ATHLETICS program at San Francisco State University, rich with history and tradition, continues to flourish in the world of college athletics. With an outstanding coaching staff and a commitment by the university to future development, we feel poised to enter the 21st century as a regional NCAA Division II powerhouse.

On July 1, 1998, San Francisco State University became an official member of the California Collegiate Athletic Association. Founded in 1939, the CCAA consists of 12 full-time members (Cal Poly Pomona, Cal State Bakersfield, Cal State Dominguez Hills, Cal State Los Angeles, Cal State San Bernardino, Cal State Stanislaus, Chico State, Grand Canyon, Sonoma State, UC Davis and UC San Diego).

The CCAA continues to build on its reputation as the most successful Division II conference in NCAA history. The conference has captured 132 NCAA team championships (92 in men's competition and 40 in women's competition). A perennial powerhouse, the conference gives SFSU national recognition.

SFSU currently sponsors basketball, cross-country, soccer, track and field and swimming for both men and women. Baseball and wrestling have men's teams while indoor track & field, softball, tennis and volleyball have women's squads.

San Francisco is perhaps the most beautiful city in the world. Among its many treasures are the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's wharf, wax museum, Coit Tower, Alcatraz Island, Golden Gate Park, PacBell Park, and the Haight-Ashbury District. The temperature usually remains mild the entire year, allowing visitors and natives to enjoy numerous outdoor activities. San Francisco also boasts a wide variety of special events, including many rich cultural backgrounds. In addition, San Francisco is known for its vast selection of restaurants. For those with a penchant for staying up late, the City features some of the best nightlife in the country. A progressive and diverse city, San Francisco has something for just about everyone from all walks of life.

Intercollegiate athletics is an integral component of the academic experience at San Francisco State University. Our specific mission is to provide a broad-based NCAA Division II athletics program that fosters the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development of diverse and highly skilled student-athletes. This program provides an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to share experiences and by doing so, enhances the cohesiveness of campus life. The department's efforts to accomplish this mission reflect the university's quest for excellence.
