Have you ever seen a shark throw a fastball? You will soon.
Since the launch of the USCB athletics program in 2007, the Sand Sharks have quickly grown into one of the strongest overall
programs in the Sun Conference and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics
(NAIA). USCB sponsors nine varsity sports — baseball, softball, women's soccer, men's
and women's golf, men's and women's cross country, and men's and women's track & field
— and has qualified teams or individuals for postseason competition in all nine.
USCB's men's and women's golf programs are perennial top-25 powers, the baseball team qualified for the NAIA World Series in 2012, and the softball team was one win away from playing in the national championship tournament in 2013.
The Sand Shark women's soccer team plays its home games at Fin Land Field on the Hilton Head Gateway campus, the golf teams call prestigious Oldfield Golf Club home, and the baseball and softball teams play at a dedicated facility at the Richard Gray Sports Complex in nearby Hardeeville.
Student-athletes interested in receiving an athletic scholarship should contact the head coach of their particular sport. Limited athletic aid is offered prior to university acceptance, however, offers occasionally are contingent upon acceptance. The requirements and value of athletic scholarships vary from sport to sport and are dependent on a number of factors, but they are awarded based strictly on athletic merit.
