Welcome to the official athletics website of your Stanton University Fighting Elks. 2023-24 will be our inaugural season of athletics. We will be competing in the USCAA with the intention of being dual members with the NAIA in our second year as an athletics program. As a WASC accredited four-year degree-granting institution we are a countable opponent to both NCAA and NAIA schools. As such, we plan on scheduling games against opponents, ranging from NCAA D1 teams to NAIA and USCAA schools.
We are very excited to represent our community and we need your support. Our hand picked recruits are not only athletes but also fantastic students. As one family, our coaches, teachers, and valuable staff members all do their best to encourage and motivate these fine young men and women who make up your Stanton Elks. Please join us as we would love for you to be a part of our fighting herd and cheer on our student athletes! Please follow us on social media and keep an eye out for the release of our team schedules.
