Athletics

A Tradition Made For Victory

Sporting events are more than fun and games at Slippery Rock University. Our proud athletic tradition has earned our teams 61 conference championships, and we’re still going strong. More than 450 student-athletes compete on our tracks, fields and courts – all committed to exceptional sportsmanship, leadership and community building.

When it comes to dedication, SRU teams get plenty from our fans. For the annual football game against arch-rival IUP, everyone is the stands wears competition-building white. Faculty, staff and classmates follow scores and players on all the rosters. Everyone on campus has loads of green-and-white gear to support spontaneous displays of Rock pride.
