The Red White Club was founded in 1983 as the fundraising arm for all St. John's athletic teams and support groups. The Red White Club provides the resources necessary to ensure Red Storm student-athletes the opportunity to achieve their maximum academic and athletic potentials. With nationally ranked teams in both men's and women's sports, All-American and All-Academic team recognition for St. John's student-athletes, it is an exciting time to be associated with St. John's athletics and the Red White Club.
The generous support of Red White Club donors has played a key role in the continuing advancement of St. John's athletic programs. The financial support provided by members of the Red White Club and Annual Fund enable the athletics department to:
- Provide the finest of educational opportunities as a result of the new Student-Athlete Center for Excellence
- Renovate and upgrade athletic facilities such as Kaiser Stadium and Carnesecca Arena.
- Provide our coaches with the resources to recruit the most talented student-athletes in the world.
