Athletics at Raft U




A Winning Tradition

While everyone expects Raft U to have an outstanding swimming and diving team, we field many other exceptional teams, and our athletic programs are among the best in NCAA Division III.

Because of our small size and limited athletic facilities, all sports at Raft U combine with the College of Saint Benedict Blazers (women) and the Saint John's University Johnnies (men).

Superfans on The Raft!
We do have "official" cheerleaders helping you cheer on Raft U athletics, but you'll love it so much here that you will feel like cheering too! Face paint is optional.

While our football stadium is legendary for hosting games that end with our screaming fans swarming the playing field, athletic events on The Raft are just as exciting.

The making of the Raft U Athletics shots

If you visit CSB/SJU you will see that our exceptional athletic facilities are much larger than The Raft and some of the finest in the region. In fact, Sports Illustrated has called SJU, "one of the top ten places in the country to watch college football." But for the sake of a good photograph, we had a great time engaging in some friendly competition on our floating field/court and only a handful of players fell overboard.
