About Stockton Athletics
Stockton student-athletes compete in Division III of the NCAA meaning they do not receive any financial aid, i.e., no scholarship, related to their athletic ability. Rather, they play for the ‘love of the game’, for the intrinsic value it holds for them, for the comradeship it provides, and for the dimensions of leadership, teamwork, time management, persistence, critical thinking, flexibility and adaptability that competitive sport adds to their educational experience.
