A Winning Tradition

In 1907, the St. John’s men’s basketball team took to the court as the University’s first collegiate athletic team. Today, over a century later, St. John’s has built a storied tradition, sponsoring 17 NCAA Division I intercollegiate teams. You’ll find the Johnnies (as they’re popularly known) competing in the NBA, WNBA, MLB, MLS, and PGA—and moving on to meaningful careers in business, education, law, medicine, and more. In class or on the playing courts and fields, St. John’s athletics is synonymous with success.
Red Storm Sports

With over 1,900 wins, our men’s basketball team is ranked 7th in NCAA victories of all-time. But, our athletic tradition goes beyond basketball. Some of today’s Olympic heroes are men and women from our fencing squads and track and field teams. You’ll also find Johnnies in the NBA, WNBA, MLB, and PGA.

Recreational Sports

Even if you’re not a Division I-level athlete, you can still compete. From traditional competitive intramurals to structured club sport programs, the St. John’s Recreational Sports Department provides our diverse campus community with a variety of activities. With options ranging from flag football to ultimate Frisbee, there’s a group that’s just right for you.

Red White Club

Since its foundation in 1983, the Red White Club has played a vital role ensuring the continued success of our student-athletes. As the premier giving society for supporters of Red Storm sports, its members contribute gifts that have an immediate and tangible impact on all of our Division I teams.
