There's a Flyer in Each of Us

Whether it's on the court or in the stands, everyone is a Flyer. When you experience it for the first time, you'll know why Sporting News named our fans the best in the nation — and why we've earned a consistent top-30 national ranking in fan attendance.

The Flyers compete at the NCAA Division I level and distinguish themselves nationally. Our basketball teams reached the Elite Eight in 2014 (men) and 2015 (women). And 10 teams have advanced to the NCAA postseason in the last decade: baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's cross country, football, men's and women's soccer, women's track and field (indoor and outdoor), and volleyball.

Dayton Flyers

Flyers teams win both on the field and in the classroom. Ten teams have advanced to the NCAA postseason in the last decade, and we have one of the highest graduation rates for student-athletes.
