Athletics at the University: Varsity and Intramural
As with many universities, athletics at LSSU are an integral part of the campus community. They encourage teamwork and camaraderie between student athletes and they also promote healthy relations between the University, the community and other schools.
Lake Superior State University Athletics participate in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) at a NCAA Division II ranking, while our Men’s Ice Hockey is a NCAA Division I sport.
The Varsity sports at LSSU include:
- Cross Country
- Men’s Basketball
- Men’s Ice-Hockey
- Men’s Tennis
- Track & Field
- Women’s Tennis
- Women’s Volleyball
Let’s face it, not all of us were meant to be college athletes. For those of us out there who seek athletic activity purely as enjoyment, Lake State offers Intramural activities open to all students. With intramurals there is no harsh workout regimen and the schedules fit better with most students’ schedules. So if you were an athlete in High School and you feel as though Collegiate Varsity Sports are not for you, check out the intramurals. You will find that they are a fun, fast-paced and exciting way to release competitive energy. More information about Intramurals...

- Flag Football
- Floor Hockey
- Indoor Soccer
- Outdoor Soccer
- Wally Ball
