2021-22 NCAA Winter Sports Calendar
The NCAA winter sports season is underway. A few sports and championships have seen their 2020-21 schedule changed due to COVID-19. Everything will return to a more normal schedule for the 2021-22 season.
Winter sports season has started this fall for a few: all divisions of swimming and diving, women’s NC ice hockey, men’s DI ice hockey, NC bowling and NC rifle all started in September and October.
With the start of new seasons, many will be looking to reach the top of the mountain in their respective sports. A few will try to repeat as champions. Most notable include Baylor Men’s Basketball (DI), Stanford Women’s Basketball (DI), Men’s Texas Swimming and Diving (DI), and Queens Swimming and Diving (NC) (DII ), a program that seeks to win seven NCAA titles in a row.
