Athletics

at Saint Francis University


  • Up here, we study hard and we play hard.

    We have a wide variety of NCAA Division I varsity sports, intramural and club sports, as well as racquetball courts, workout facilities, nature trails, and even a golf course to tame your wild side. There's definitely a 'reach higher' attitude in our approach to athletics and one that is unique to NCAA Division I athletic programs. We compete to win - however we expect our student athletes to develop academically, athletically and spiritually. Athletics teaches valuable lessons about discipline, commitment, passion for excellence, and teamwork. We value not only these lessons, but how to face adversity with courage and how to win and lose with grace.
