The Potsdam Bears are the name of the sports teams of the State University of New York at Potsdam.
The men's team plays in the State University of New York Athletic Conference since the conference started sponsoring men's ice hockey for the 1992-93 season after previously being a member of ECAC West. The men's program dates back to the 1976-77 season. The team played in ECAC's Division II from 1976 to 1985 and then joined ECAC West for the 1992-93 season
Both teams are based out of the Maxcy Ice Arena. The arena seats 2,500 and opened in 1971 as part of a larger athletic complex. The facility also includes a gymnasium, pool, fitness center, and the university's outdoor athletic fields surround the indoor facilities.
