The University of Mary Washington is a proud member of NCAA Division III.  As a Division III institution, we do not offer athletic scholarships nor do we utilize the National Letter of Intent program.  However, all of our sports are very competitive and spots on rosters must be offered and earned.  Each head coach has the autonomy to determine the size and make-up of the roster for their sport.  If the head coach offers a prospective student-athlete a tryout, the tryout will include at least one opportunity in sport-related activity observed by the head coach during the championship or non-championship segment.  The head coach will make the determination as to whether a tryout opportunity will be offered to a prospective student-athlete.  All roster spots are evaluated annually, based on criteria such as academic and athletic performance, team commitment and chemistry, and social responsibility.  Any questions about a current or prospective student-athlete’s status on a roster should be directed to that sport’s head coach.
