The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University are both proud NCAA Division III members. Saint Ben’s and Saint John’s sponsor 12 varsity intercollegiate sports respectively, and are primary members of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. In addition to the varsity programming, both CSB and SJU offer a variety of club, intramural and recreational opportunities for students to become involved, continue a sport they love and to stay active and adventurous.


Club Sports

From lacrosse to rugby, crew, and dance – our club sports teams provide the camaraderie and the competition you would find in a varsity sport. Some teams travel and compete against other colleges and universities across the country.
