The Northern Colorado Bears (also UNC) are the varsity athletic teams representing the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado in intercollegiate athletics. The university sponsors seventeen teams including men and women's basketball, cross country, golf, tennis, and track and field; women's-only soccer, softball, swimming and diving, and volleyball; and men's-only baseball, football, and wrestling. The Bears compete in NCAA Division I FCS and most teams are members of the Big Sky Conference.[1] The women's swimming and diving team is an affiliate member of the Western Athletic Conference,[2] and the baseball team will move from the Great West Conference to join them in the WAC on July 1, 2013.[3] The wrestling team is a member of the Western Wrestling Conference since the Big Sky is a non-wrestling conference.
