Davis College will become full members of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Division II for all of their athletic programs starting July 1st.

The USCAA was formed in 2001. They focus specifically on smaller institutions of higher learning and their student athletes. Currently, there are 85 colleges and universities nationwide that are members of the USCAA and that number is growing quickly based on the organization’s reputation among its current members.

Dan Rathmell, Athletic Director at Davis College said, “Joining the USCAA provides our student athletes an opportunity to compete for national titles as well as earn recognition for their individual accomplishments on a national spotlight.”

Davis College offers 4 varsity sports including men’s and women’s basketball, men’s soccer, and a women’s volleyball team. They plan on adding more sports as enrollment continues to grow.

Davis College athletics had been associated with the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) until 2009, but left due to a lack of members in the northeast region.

Davis has been playing an independent schedule since then.  Rathmell also said “We have already been competing with several schools from the USCAA in the last few seasons, so joining the organization is a natural fit.”
