Athletics is an integral component of our commitment to a holistic education — one founded on the Benedictine principle of balance. Whether you're an NCAA Division II athlete, an intramural enthusiast or a rec center regular, your health and well-being is the linchpin to an education that balances mind, body and spirit.
Saint Martin's Saints
Saint Martin’s athletes are students first. Across campus, you will find Saints living the student-athlete experience — physicist-golfers, biologist-volleyball players, engineer-hoopsters.
Student-athletes are master jugglers — tested and practiced in the challenges of time management and organization. They are better students because they are athletes and better athletes because they are serious students. With six men’s and seven women’s teams, Saint Martin’s offers a variety of varsity sports ranging from golf to volleyball to track and field.
Intramural sports at Saint Martin's is a community affair. Students, faculty, staff and alumni participate in a variety of sports in a friendly, semi-competitive environment. Best of all, there's no experience necessary. Bring your friends and come for the fun of it!
Most leagues run six weeks, playing on Tuesday nights or Wednesday nights or both.
How to sign-up: Sign-up sheets are available in the TUB and rec center two weeks prior to the sport's start date.
Our 36,000 square foot state-of-the-art Charneski Recreation Center makes staying in shape a cinch! With weights and cardio equipment, a three-lane track and batting cages — just a few of our rec center amenities — you'll find everything you need to keeping your heart pumping. You’ll also have access to wellness classes such as yoga and Zumba.
If you are a student taking at least six credits, or faculty, staff or a member of the monastic community, the rec center is here for you -- free to use with your Saint Martin’s ID card.
Cheerleading, SMU style!
The Saint Martin's University cheerleading team is an exciting opportunity for men and women to get involved on campus. Cheerleaders focus on cheer skills, choreography, and stunting, and perform at all men's and women's basketball games.
The team practices three times per week from 4-6 p.m. Try-outs occur at the end of spring semester and the beginning of fall semester. The Saint Martin's University cheerleading team is open to men and women of all levels.
