College of Staten Island to Join NE10 as Associate Member in Swimming & Diving

CSI Swimming & Diving - NE10 Associate Member


CSI's Associate Membership in Swimming & Diving Begins in the 2023-24 Season.

MANSFIELD, Mass. – The Northeast-10 Conference is pleased to announce that the College of Staten Island will be joining the conference as an associate member in the sport of swimming & diving, effective for the 2023-24 season. 

With the addition of CSI, an institution located in Staten Island, N.Y., the NE10 will have seven institutions competing in men's swimming & diving and eight institutions competing in women's swimming & diving. With the departure of Le Moyne to the Division I Northeast Conference, the NE10's sponsorship in swimming & diving will remain the same with CSI's associate membership. 

"The NE10 is pleased to extend associate membership to the College of Staten Island in the sport of swimming & diving," said NE10 Commissioner Julie Ruppert. "We are happy to welcome the College of Staten Island to the Conference. This is a win-win situation for the NE10 and CSI, providing long-term stability to a valued sport for both the Conference and our institutions. We look forward to sharing the excellent student-athlete experience for which the NE10 is known to this new group of swimming & diving student-athletes at the College of Staten Island."

CSI will be eligible to compete at the NE10 Swimming & Diving Championships beginning next year in 2024. 

What He Is Saying:

Chase Licata, Director of Athletics and Recreation at the College of Staten Island

"We are looking forward to our swimming & diving program competing in the NE10 as an associate member institution and we are honored to be a part of one of the premier conferences in the region. Finding a Division II home for our swimming & diving program was one of our top priorities and membership in a distinguished conference like the NE10 will enhance the College of Staten Island's ability to attract talented student-athletes. We're excited to begin working with Commissioner Ruppert and her wonderful staff while competing against the terrific student-athletes and coaches of the NE10. I want to thank the Interim President of the College of Staten Island, Dr. Timothy Lynch, his staff, and our swimming & diving head coach Michael Ackalitis for their support and guidance throughout the application process. Their efforts played a vital role in finding CSI swimming & diving a Division II home."

The NE10 is an association of 13 diverse institutions serving student-athletes across 24 NCAA Division II sports. Together we build brilliant futures by embracing the journey of every student-athlete.

Each year, 4,500 of those student-athletes compete in conference championships in 24 sports, making the NE10 the largest DII conference in the country in terms of sport sponsorship. Leading the way in the classroom, on the field and within the community, the NE10 is proud of its comprehensive program and the experience it provides student-athletes.
