The J-Club is the booster organization that supports Johnnie athletics. Varsity, club and intramural sports benefit from the money raised by the J-Club.

The J-Club raises money through two annual appeals:

Members can also chose to waive the passes and make their gift tax-deductible. To become a member, visit Examples of recent J-Club support include:

  • A $25,000 gift to the Athletic Department to kick-off the capital campaign for a new baseball field, soccer pitch, intramural fields, tennis courts and bubble dome.
  • Travel for early spring baseball games.
  • Purchase of new hockey team uniforms and goalie equipment
  • Sponsorship of the annual Johnnie 3-on-3 basketball tournament
  • Funding for wrestling team travel to the National Duals.
  • Funding for ultimate frisbee team travel to nationals
  • Funding for lacrosse team travel to nationals
  • Providing J-Club blankets to all varsity team seniors
  • Funding for football trip to Regina, Saskatchewan

The spring J-Club appeal is sent by varsity and club head coaches to alumni and parents connected with their programs. Money raised goes directly to the team and is used at the discretion of the head coach. These gifts are tax-deductible. To make a gift to a specific team, visit

The Gagliardi Trophy
