Varsity Catholic

Developing the Complete Athlete

Mind, Body, and Soul.

“Sport, rightly understood … makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth and helps man to achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of his Creator.” — Pope Pius XII

Student athletes like you face unique challenges. There are so many pressures to excel in academics and in your arena.

Enter Varsity Catholic. We are a group of missionaries on campus who were, at some point, varsity athletes in college. We know a thing or two about your fierce dedication to your sport as you balance your other life commitments. You have a special opportunity to bring much-needed change in the world. If you're a student-athlete on campus, search our list of campuses. We'd love to meet you!
