CTX Athletics Member of NCAA DIII

Concordia University Texas strives to be the university where the adventure of faith, learning and life-changing experiences leads to meaningful work. As a member of NCAA Division III (DIII), CTX is able to provide all students with these experiences, including student-athletes.


More than 190,000 student-athletes from 450 institutions compete in this division. DIII is the largest NCAA division, containing the greatest number of participants and schools.

Concordia has 15 teams that compete in the division, including:

  • Baseball
  • Men’s and Women’s Basketball
  • Men’s and Women’s Cross Country
  • Men’s and Women’s Golf
  • Men’s and Women’s Soccer
  • Softball
  • Men’s and Women’s Tennis
  • Men’s and Women’s Track & Field
  • Volleyball

Our student-athletes compete in the American Southwest Conference (ASC), which is one of the largest conferences in DIII.

According to the NCAA, the DIII experience offers “a competitive athletic environment that pushes student-athletes to excel on the field and build upon their potential by tackling new challenges across campus.”

In other words, as a DIII school, Concordia offers its athletes a richer experience and the opportunity to participate in all aspects of university life.

Play for the Love of the Game

As a DIII school, Concordia does not offer athletic scholarships to students. Our student-athletes compete for the love of the sport.

Full University Experience

Concordia’s student-athletes have the opportunity to get involved in all areas of university life, including student activities, campus organizations, internships, on-campus events and more.

Academics Focused

Shorter practices and playing seasons allow Concordia Tornados to spend less time away from their academic studies, which helps our student-athletes to stay on track with their degree plan and graduate on time.

Personalized Experience

Just like in the classroom, CTX student-athletes receive individualized attention to help them improve their athletic performance. CTX offers the support athletes need to grow in athletics and academics.
