SUNY Poly is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA Division III), the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC), and the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC). 

SUNY Poly began its intercollegiate sports program in the early 1980s, practicing and playing at various venues in Utica and at the New York Mills School District's Beekman Gym until the Campus Center athletic facilities opened in late 1988. SUNY Poly was accepted as a Division III member of the NCAA in 1990 and into the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) in 1992. 

SUNY Poly made a successful transition from the SUNYAC to the NEAC during the 2008-09 academic year.  Member schools of the NEAC currently include Cazenovia College (Cazenovia, NY), the College of Saint Elizabeth (Morristown, NJ), Keuka College (Keuka, NY), Morrisville State College (Morrisville, NY), Penn State University - Abington (Abington, PA), Penn State University - Berks (Reading, PA), Penn College of Technology (Williamsport, PA), SUNY Cobleskill (Cobleskill, NY), Wells College (Aurora, NY), Wilson College (Chambersburg, PA), Gallaudet (Washington, DC), Lancaster Bible College (Lancaster, PA), and Bryn Athyn College (Bryn Athyn, PA). 

The current roster of SUNY Poly sports includes baseball, softball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's volleyball, and  men's and women's lacrosse. 

The college recently completed construction of a $20 million field house and lighted turf field. The field house is the new home for the Wildcat athletic programs and the campus intramural and recreation programs and features a state-of-the-art fitness center, two full-sized basketball courts and four volleyball courts, indoor practice facilities for all Wildcat teams, a running track, an expansive training room, team rooms, and offices for the athletics department's administrative staff and coaches. With seating for 3,500, the field house also accommodates commencement and other large events.  Additionally, a new baseball field and improvements to the existing softball field were included in the construction project.


SUNY Poly is a tight knit collegiate sports program that can help meet your needs, be it for intercollegiate team participation, intramural and recreational activities, or health and fitness programs. Please be sure to contact me with any questions or concerns.
