Brenau University believes that intercollegiate athletics play a vital role in the mental, emotional, physical and social development and well-being of its students. The athletic department is dedicated to the total development of the student athlete. The university conscientiously supports sports for female scholar-athletes in an effort to provide opportunity, identity, discipline, status, honor, recruitment, and retention of those seeking to reach their maximum potential. Our goal is to graduate scholar-athletes who become successful citizens in a highly competitive global society. In order to facilitate the achievement of this mission, Brenau University is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and participate in the Southern States Athletic Conference.

The players come from top-notch clubs in the U.S., Columbia, England, and Nigeria. Over the last 5 years the Brenau University soccer team has established itself as one of the elite teams in the SSAC with a consistent regular season finish in the top four. The last 2 years has seen Brenau host SSAC 1st round playoff games and in 2011 the team finished with an overall record of 10-6-3. The 2012 season was an historic one with the Golden Tigers improving their overall record to 13-5-0 and recording the most wins in a season. The Tigers were recognized for their success with a well deserved #17 NAIA national ranking.  In addition to the team’s success, many players on the team were honored for their individual accomplishments.
