Atlantic 10 School History

The Atlantic 10 Conference has a long and storied history of athletic excellence. Established in 1975, the conference comprises 14 United States and Canadian universities. It is one of the most competitive conferences in Division I college sports, with some schools having won multiple national championships over its 45-year existence.

For sports fans who follow collegiate athletics, few conferences are more attractive than those that make up the Atlantic 10 Conference (A10). From its inception to today’s modern era, A10 teams have been consistently successful on both regional and national levels across all men’s and women’s sports divisions.

The University of Dayton Flyers were one of four charter members when it was formed back in 1975; they remain as part of this prestigious group today along with George Washington University Colonials, St Joseph's Hawks, La Salle Explorers, Massachusetts Minutemen & Women's basketball team. Over time, other notable programs like VCU Rams & Richmond Spiders later joined to add even more depth to an already impressive roster.

In addition to fielding powerhouse teams at both NCAA Division I Basketball Championships for Men & Women each year, A10 also boasts many vital baseball programs such as Rhode Island Rams or Fordham Rams, which have been known for producing Major League Baseball players like Mike Piazza from Stony Brook Seawolves or Chris Young from Princeton Tigers. Other popular events include the Soccer Tournament Championship, where UMass Minuteman took home the title last year after defeating Dayton Flyers 3-1 in the final match score.

With so much success over its 45 years since its establishment, it should come as no surprise that numerous alumni athletes have gone on to become professional athletes, including NBA Hall Of Fame inductee Allen Iverson ( Georgetown Hoyas ), former NFL offensive lineman Joe Jacoby ( Richmond Spiders ) among others making them some truly remarkable role models for aspiring young athletes everywhere!
