The Sailfish Club provides greater community awareness and complementary financial support for Palm Beach Atlantic University's intercollegiate athletic teams. While the athletic administration and coaching staff exist to serve these student-athletes and to support them academically, athletically, spiritually and personally, members of the Sailfish Club are an important partner in that process.
Through their intense competitive spirit and personal commitment to excellence, student-athletes learn valuable lessons of life. These athletes are not only achievers in the classroom and in sport, but in the community at large by volunteering at local non-profit organizations and through mission organizations around the world.
It costs more than $2 million to fund the Sailfish athletic programs. It is only through the generous support of alumni, friends, parents and businesses that these costs can be met so that student-athletes can excel both in the classroom and on the field.
SAILFISH CLUB MISSION
By enthusiastically supporting these athletes - through the Sailfish Club and attendance at Sailfish athletic events - you give them encouragement and inspiriation, and affirm their special commitment. Sailfish Club members financially invest in the University's athletic program as well as provide prayer support that blesses our athletes.
Please join us through your annual membership as we seek to attain new levels of excellence for our athletic program and the experience of our student-athletes. Thank you for your commitment to excellence!
