Pioneer athletics club welcomes new members

Alumni athletes, parents of current student-athletes, and all others interested in Transylvania athletics are invited to join the Pioneer Athletics Club, a new service and support organization formed through a joint effort by the athletics department and the alumni office.

“We’re inviting all those interested in our athletics programs to become more engaged with the University,” said athletics director Jack Ebel ’77. “We hope to add to the overall experience of our student-athletes by supporting our teams and the mission of Transylvania.”

Members of the club will receive an electronic quarterly newsletter on athletics, and special e-mails when teams qualify for tournament play or with updates on alumni events.

Club members can demonstrate their commitment by attending athletics events and social activities and volunteering in support of the organization’s goals, Ebel said.

“But you don’t have to come to games to be involved,” he added. “We have alumni all over the country who are interested in Pioneer athletics, and they certainly can’t come to the games all the time. Among the approximately 100 members so far are alumni from California, Texas, and Arizona.”

There is no cost to join the Pioneer Athletics Club. For more information, contact Ebel at (859) 233-8548 or Athletics information is also available at by selecting Athletics.
