Our student-athletes are anything but ordinary. UC San Diego Athletics is committed to the physical, intellectual, and personal development of our phenomenal student-athletes. Our 23 men’s and women’s teams — propelled by their indomitable fighting spirit — are training rigorously as they prepare to transition to NCAA Division I.  By the 2020-21 academic year, all of our athletic teams will have transitioned to NCAA Division I, with most competing in the Big West Conference.

As we move to the highest level of intercollegiate athletics, your partnership becomes more valuable than ever.  Making a gift NOW is an investment in our future Tritons and will have a direct impact on their experience.

Your gift supports:

  • Nutritional education
  • Athletic training assistance
  • Strength and conditioning guidance
  • Scholarships
  • Travel for educational and competitive opportunities

Join your Triton Family and give the student-athletes the support they deserve.  Together, we can be the pillars of their academic and athletic success.
