2014-16 Graduate Catalog
The University of Wisconsin-Superior provides a variety of opportunities for men and women to participate in intercollegiate athletics at the NCAA Division III level competing against the finest schools in the nation, thereby enriching the all-around collegiate experience of our student-athletes. Yellowjacket student-athletes are expected to place a priority on academics while participating in an outstanding athletic program, thus striving for excellence as a student and as an athlete.
The athletic programs are not scholarship-based, therefore scholarships received by student-athletes are on the basis of academic performance. UW-Superior intercollegiate athletic programs are intended to enrich both the student-athlete and the university community. Through the athletic programs, the university strives to provide the following:
UW-Superior competes in NCAA Division III at the national level and is a member of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) at the conference level. Beginning in the 2015-16 season, UW-Superior Yellowjacket sports teams will begin competing in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC).
The Marcovich Wellness Center houses the Health and Human Performance Department, athletic programs, and student fitness and recreation facilities. The building includes the Lydia Thering Field House with an indoor track, 2,500-seat Mertz Mortorelli Gymnasium (home of the Yellowjacket volleyball and men's and women's basketball teams) , fitness center, weight room, exercise and physiology lab, racquetball courts, climbing wall, swimming pool, dance studio, faculty and coaches' offices, and offices for the student recreation and intramural programs.
Other athletic facilities include Wessman Arena, which houses the men's and women's hockey teams; Ted Whereatt Field, home to the baseball team; and the Yellowjacket Soccer Complex, home of the men's and women's soccer teams. UW-Superior has an agreement for use of the city softball fields.
The Superior Challenge Ropes Course is located just west of Wessman Arena. It includes high and local ropes elements to accommodate any skill level. The course offers a series of activities for both individual and group participation regardless of age, physical limitation or ability.
