Tigers Club

Supporting Holy Family's Student-Athletes.

HFU Tigers LogoA Holy Family University education has a lasting impact on a student’s future success. The Tigers Club helps to provide Holy Family student-athletes with the opportunity to compete at a high level while excelling in the classroom and engaging with the community.

Holy Family’s intercollegiate athletics program is focused on the educational well-being and academic success of its student-athletes. They consistently excel not only on the field of play but in the classroom, and finished the 2016-17 academic year with a cumulative grade point average of 3.17. Over the years, the student-athlete’s overall GPA as a group has exceeded 3.00 and has not dipped below 3.10.

Holy Family student-athletes are building lasting relationships by actively engaging in the community. Through their annual “Build-A-Library” initiative, they collect children’s books and donate them to local schools. They also raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation through an annual bowling event. For the last several years, Holy Family student-athletes have visited the Overbrook School for the Blind to volunteer at its annual “Hoopla 4 Hearts” event, which promotes healthy eating and exercise.

With your support of the Tigers Club, you will be contributing to our student-athletes’ success representing the Blue and White! Offering 14 varsity teams (nine women, five men) reflects Holy Family’s commitment to afford all men and women participants’ equitable opportunity, promote sportsmanship, uphold moral principles and nurture character, integrity and personal responsibility.
