The UPEI Panthers are the men's and women's athletic teams that represent the University of Prince Edward Island in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The UPEI Panthers have teams playing in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference of the U Sports, including men's and women's ice hockey, soccer, basketball, cross country running and swimming as well as women's rugby. The women's field hockey team competes in an Atlantic league where the winner is then allowed to compete in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport playoffs. UPEI also offers a club level men's rugby team.
The Panthers have the fourth-most Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference Championships (4), their last being the 2002-03 season. The AUS conference is a competitive Canadian league that has produced Canadian national champions, a Canadian Olympics player, several NBA draftees, and one NBA player.
