Ice Hockey (Women's)

The Women's Club Ice Hockey team is in its 4th year as a club sport for the 2013-2014 season.  As a part of the DII division of the Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference (DVCHC) the team offers a competitive and exciting season. We hold 1-2 practices weekly and have 10-12 games per season (as well as the possibility of playoffs). It was founded by a very dedicated SJU student, Therese Dallegro '13, her freshman year.

The team is led by coaches who know how to balance hard work and having a good time on the ice. Overall, its a nice way to escape campus life and join a great group of girls for an extra curricular activity. Hit the ice for our next season and see what the team is all about! Go Hawks!!

Soccer (Men's)

Men's Club Soccer was founded at Saint Joseph's in the fall of 2008 under the guidance of Brendan Martin ('12) and Wes Harris ('10). The program, though in its first year, has great potential and a promising future. The pool of soccer talent at SJU is deep, giving us the top players, without asking of them the commitment of a Division 1 NCAA program. In its current state, the program is seeking to play in select indoor and outdoor leagues throughout the academic year.

Water Polo 

The SJU club water polo team was established in 2009 by a group of high school friends that wanted to carry their involvement with the sport from high school into college. The team has now been passed down to a younger generation that are just as devoted to the sport as the founders. Water polo is an intense sport that requires endurance, strength, and a competitive mindset to succeed. It has been described as an aquatic version of handball and is an olympic sport. The team is constantly looking for new members in the hopes of growing and becoming more of a threat in our division, facing teams such as UPenn, Nova, UDel, and more. Water polo is an excellent way to get in shape in a fun, laid back, yet hard working environment. We practice at the O’Pake Pool from 8-10pm on Monday thru Thursday. No experience necessary at all, a competitive swimming background is well sought after however. For more information feel free to contact Kevin Shaloo at ks603971@sju.edu or Matt Simona at ms596999@sju.edu.
