We hear the term “JMU Sports” at least once a semester, if not more, but what exactly does the university mean by “JMU Sports” and what categories fit under the name? Below are the lists of what are considered JMU Sports, and every student has the chance to participate in Club and Intramural Sports.t is hard to be on a Division I, II or III team, however some JMU Athletic Sports can consider JMU current students as walk-ons.

JMU Athletics

JMU Athletics sponsors around 18-sports intercollegiate programs that compete at the Division I level of the National College Athletic Association. JMU is also affiliated with Colonial Athletic Association and Eastern College Athletic Conference. JMU had strong intercollegiate programs for women since early 1920s and provided respectable intercollegiate offerings for females. Men’s athletics began evolving in the late 1960s when the university became co-educational. The intercollegiate programs are listed below.
