Pac-12 Conference Logos
The California Golden Bears are the athletic teams that represent the University of California, Berkeley. Referred to in athletic competition as California or Cal, the university fields 30 varsity athletic programs and various club teams in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)’s Division I primarily as a member of the Pac-12 Conference, and for a limited number of sports as a member of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF). Over the course of the school’s history, California has won team national titles in 13 men’s and 3 women’s sports and 107 team titles overall. Cal athletes have also competed in the Olympics for a host of different countries. Notable facilities used by the Bears include California Memorial Stadium (football) and Haas Pavilion (basketball and other indoor sports). Cal finished the 2010–11 athletic season with 1,219.50 points, earning third place in the Director’s Cup standings, the Golden Bears' highest finish ever. Cal did not receive any points for its national championships in rugby and men’s crew because those sports are not governed by the NCAA. Cal finished 12th in the 2014-15 standings.
In 2014, Cal instituted a strict academic standard for an athlete’s admission to the university. By the 2017 academic year 80 percent of incoming student athletes were required to comply with the University of California general student requirement of having a 3.0 or higher high school grade point average.
California’s nickname originated in 1895 during California’s dominant track and field team’s tour of Midwest and Eastern universities. A blue silk banner with the golden grizzly bear, the state symbol, was displayed by the team during that tour. Since then, Cal’s athletic teams have been known as the Golden Bears.
