Becoming a fan: NSU’s sports teams

NSU has a wide variety of sports teams and all of them consist of talented players who work hard to make NSU proud. While the university hosts many different events throughout the year, the sports games are some of the best. Being a first time or even returning student, it can be hard to keep track of all the teams and games, especially if you’re not a student athlete yourself. Luckily, there are some places you can check to see what is happening, when, and how you can go out and support NSU’s sports teams.


How to find them

While you may only be hearing about games from word of mouth or emails, you can actually find the composite sports schedule for the NSU sports teams online. It’s as easy as going to and the calendar is found under the “Inside Athletics” section. With this handy dandy website, you can not only find out when games are happening, but you can learn about the different NSU sports teams and just how amazing they are. For example, the women’s swimming team were named champions at the Sunshine State Conference in 2020 and an NSU men’s basketball player was one of only eight seniors in the entire country to make the NABC Division II All-Star East roster.

How to follow them

It’s important for students to not only know about the games, but to support the teams. The best way to support your favorite NSU sports team is to follow them on social media and attend their games. Bring signs for your favorite players or for the whole team, and wear your favorite Shark gear that can be purchased from any of the NSU stores on campus or online. After you’ve decided which games you want to attend, you’ll need tickets. Tickets can be purchased directly from the Don Taft University Center box office. The box office is located right next to the RecPlex, directly in front of the main entrance. While most tickets are free for students, some events do require an entrance fee or paid ticket. All you have to do to get a free ticket to a game is bring your NSU ID, better known as your SharkCard, and show it to the employee working the doors. They will hand you your ticket and voila, you can go and enjoy the game!
