Founded in 1975, the Sunshine State Conference has developed from a basketball organization into the NCAA Division II “Conference of National Champions.” Since its inception, the Conference has grown steadily in sports played, membership, and national prominence.

Sunshine State Conference teams have won NCAA Division II national championships in baseball, men’s basketball, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, volleyball, and men’s and women’s tennis. SSC teams are also nationally recognized in rowing.

The SSC sponsors championships in 14 sports for men and women: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women's golf, rowing, men’s and women's soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball.

Barry University joined the SSC in June of 1988. Other SSC members — all in Florida — are Eckerd College (St. Petersburg), Florida Tech (Melbourne), Florida Southern College (Lakeland), Lynn University (Boca Raton), Nova Southeastern University (Davie), Rollins College (Winter Park), Saint Leo University (Saint Leo), and the University of Tampa (Tampa).

SSC member colleges and universities have won 84 national championships in the NCAA. Numerous All-Americans, Academic All-Americans, and professional athletes have attended Conference institutions. The SSC is respected for its academic foresight, setting standards which were later adopted by the NCAA. The SSC has led all 22 Division II conferences in the NCAA Academic Success Rate every year it has been measured. Each year, over 800 student-athletes are named to the Commissioner's Honor Roll with GPA's over 3.20 on a 4.00 scale.
