Hartford to Join Commonwealth Coast Conference


"The Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) is pleased to announce the addition of the University of Hartford as its 11th core conference member.  The announcement was made by the CCC Board of Directors on Tuesday morning. UHart will officially join the conference in 2023-24 as it progresses through the NCAA Reclassification process from NCAA Division I to NCAA Division III, effective Sept. 1, 2025.

“On behalf of the Commonwealth Coast Conference Board of Directors and my fellow CCC Presidents, I wish to welcome the University of Hartford to the CCC family,” said CCC Board of Directors Chair and University of New England President Dr. James D. Herbert. “The CCC Board has been most impressed with UHart’s thorough strategic plan, vision for athletics and solid commitment to provide expanded sport offerings. Each of the CCC member institutions places the highest emphasis on providing elite academic and athletic opportunities that complement each other, and the CCC board is pleased to partner with an institution that has demonstrated their commitment to these values."

“The University of Hartford is honored to have found a great match in the Commonwealth Coast Conference,” said University of Hartford President Gregory Woodward. “The CCC member institutions share UHart’s vision and values, our high expectations for academic and athletic achievement on a regional and national level, and our prioritization of student experiences and success. We are excited about the natural rivalries that will unfold and look forward to the competitive future of Hartford Athletics with our new conference partners. We have found the ideal conference to ensure the success of our landmark reclassification to Division III.”

“In recent years, the CCC has become a prime destination for elite-level prospective student-athletes in all sports,” said CCC Commissioner Gregg M. Kaye. “As the University of Hartford expands its athletic offerings in the coming years, that will help with the continued growth of our conference.”
