Saint Mary's provides a top-notch competitive experience for its exceptional student-athletes. You can help keep that tradition alive, and keep them winning, with your support for Gael Athletics. Here are some of the ways you can help.
The centerpiece of the Athletics and Recreation Corridor (ARC) is the 52,000-square-foot Joseph L. Alioto Recreation Center, named for the 1937 Saint Mary's alumnus who served as mayor of San Francisco from 1968 to 1976. The Corridor, located on the west side of campus, also will include a new 1,500-seat baseball park, aquatics center and an outdoor plaza linking the new site to the Korth Tennis Complex and Cottrell Softball Field. There are several opportunities for you to support this effort that will enhance life and well being at Saint Mary's.
Student-Athlete Performance Center
The new weight and training room within the Student-Athlete Performance Center will offer improved technology and state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment for every student-athlete. This will provide the opportunity to train and compete at the highest level, while giving each individual top quality care. Every varsity coach on the Saint Mary’s staff places the new weight room and training room at the top of their priority list. The Performance Center, along with expanded seating in McKeon Pavilion, will add to one of the best Home Court Advantages in the Country.
Gael Athletic Fund
Student-athletes benefit directly from your generous contributions to our Division 1 athletic programs. You can help ensure that all 16 men's and women's Gael teams stay competitive in the West Coast Conference by supporting scholarships, program needs, facilities improvements, travel and academic support for our student-athletes.

- Upgrades to technology and fitness equipment
The Tip-Off Club is an exclusive group of donors that supports men’s basketball at Saint Mary’s. Gifts allow our student-athletes and coaches to compete among the NCAA’s elite programs and provide discretionary support for Coach Randy Bennett to use for facilities, equipment, scheduling, travel and more.
