The mission of K Club is to help preserve the history and traditions of Kansas Athletics, support current student-athletes, and connect former participants, coaches, student athletic trainers and managers of varsity sports at the University of Kansas.
K Club will enhance the Jayhawk family experience by cultivating lifelong relationships, endowing traditions and creating networks for personal and professional development.
Unity, Pride, Respect, Legacy
K Club began when the first letter was awarded in 1877. The faces of varsity athletics at The University of Kansas have changed through the years, but our uniquely shared experiences across generations and sports are what bind us together forever. The story of Kansas Athletics is one deeply rooted in history and tradition. There is no greater tradition than the people who helped create our legacy. K Club provides an avenue for us to come together in unity to celebrate with pride, our respect and love for the Crimson and Blue. Through our reunion structure, K Club has hosted hundreds of championship team, all-sport and sport-specific reunions the last decade. We look forward to continuing and enhancing these engagement opportunities for our K Club members.
Beginning in 2019, anyone who has participated in a varsity sport at the University of Kansas as a student-athlete (participant or letterwinner), head coach, student manager or student athletic trainer, automatically will become a member of K Club. Student-athletes must have completed their eligibility and managers and trainers must have completed their student status.
Your continued engagement and presence after your competition days are critical to the success of Kansas Athletics. Each of you model the transition from student-athlete to working professional for our current student-athletes and exhibit a unique connectedness to the University of Kansas. Our promise to you as you navigate the different stages of life is an open door to share and grow your own personal Jayhawk journey. Each of our K Club members will enjoy the following:

“Competing as a Jayhawk was an integral part of my wonderful education and overall KU experience. That foundation was essential to my career. Helping make a path possible for current and future Jayhawks through our gifts is one way to pay it forward. Also, helping provide career advice and encouragement is another way I give back and it’s so gratifying to see these Jayhawk student-athletes take flight and set off on their own career paths.” – Linda Ellis-Sims (Swimming & Diving/Pictured Above)
