The Old Dominion Monarchs and Lady Monarchs are composed of 18 teams representing Old Dominion University in intercollegiate athletics. Men’s sports include baseball, basketball, football, golf, sailing, soccer, swimming, and tennis. Women’s sports include basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, golf, sailing, soccer, swimming, tennis, rowing, and volleyball. The Monarchs compete in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and are members of Conference USA (C-USA) as their primary conference affiliation.
The football team played one season as an independent as part of the transition to FBS and began competing as a full football-playing member of C-USA in 2014.
Old Dominion’s field hockey team competes in the Big East Conference. The field hockey program had previously announced that it would join the original Big East for the 2013–14 school year. However, following the split of the original Big East, the two successor conferences, the new Big East and the American Athletic Conference, agreed that The American would not sponsor field hockey, and the new Big East would take in all of The American’s programs in those sports as associate members.
The women’s lacrosse team spent the 2013–14 academic year as an independent before joining the Atlantic Sun Conference as an associate member effective July 1, 2014. In 2017 it was announced that Old Dominion Women’s Lacrosse would compete in the Big East Conference beginning in 2019. In 2014 the women’s rowing team became an associate member of the Big 12 Conference, which effectively took over sponsorship of that sport from C-USA. Later, the University announced that the rowing team would change its conference affiliation and compete in the American Athletic Conference beginning in the 2018–19 school year.
Following the move to Conference USA, the men’s swimming and diving team competed for two years as an independent, as C-USA does not sponsor the sport. On July 16, 2015, the team announced it would join the Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association, later renamed the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association, beginning with the 2015–16 season.
In 2017, the university announced it would add Women’s Volleyball as a scholarship sport, slated to compete in Conference USA beginning in 2020. The university discontinued wrestling in April 2020 after a study on the athletic departments sport sponsorship, combined with added financial pressure from the coronavirus pandemic.
