About K Club

K Club Logo
K Club’s mission 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 began when the first baseball letter was awarded in 1877. The faces of varsity athletics at the University of Kansas have changed through the years, but the “K” each of them wore proudly on their chest binds them forever. There are currently over 7,000 former KU coaches, athletes, managers and student trainers worldwide representing 24 sports.

Kansas Athletics and K Club are extremely proud of our tradition and we thank those who helped build the foundation that supports our current student-athletes. You can continue to contribute to the legacy by becoming and remaining an active member of K Club. Together we can successfully bridge the past and present by welcoming each class of Jayhawks into our family.
