The Holy Cross Varsity Club held its first official meeting in
1950, at a time when the College's athletic program was seeing the
re-formation of the Athletic Association and an Alumni Athletics
Committee. On a Sunday morning in October 1950, tennis and football
star James J. Bowman `38 was named temporary chairman of the
Varsity Club and ultimately served as the Club's first president.
Since its formation, the Holy Cross Varsity Club has existed as an
important resource. Innumerable athletes have come into contact
with the Varsity Club directly and indirectly, and have witnessed
the impact of a committed organization created to foster support
for collegiate sports competition.
Any person who has been awarded a letter by the Holy Cross Athletic Department as a result of participation in a varsity sport at the College is a member of the Holy Cross Varsity Club. Certificates of membership are traditionally given in the spring of a student-athlete's senior year. The purpose of the Club is to preserve the traditions, foster the ideals, advance the interests and improve the quality and prestige of Holy Cross athletics and the role of athletics in the educational community of the College of the Holy Cross. Members of the Club represent all eras of athletics and all collegiate teams at Holy Cross. As a result, the Varsity Club supports all areas of athletics and does not restrict its assistance to a specific team or sport.
