The Eastern College Athletic Conference administers over 80 championships in 37 sports. The ECAC Championships offer over 19,000 student-athletes from the nearly 300 member institutions an opportunity to extend their seasons through the year-ending championships, or an additional possibility to qualify for an NCAA Championship. ECAC Championships are held for both men and women in team and individual sports during the fall, winter, and spring seasons.

To participate in an ECAC team championship, a member institution must declare by the posted date and be selected by the committee for that specific division and region. Selection Monday's occur the first Monday after the end of the regular season. The committee and the ECAC liaison use the selection criteria to choose the most deserving teams to compete.
