The Tornado Athletic Club is a way that allows YOU to be more fully engaged in the excitement that is collegiate athletics. Each year, King student athletes display their competitive spirits on behalf of the school, giving the best of themselves both on and off the field. These young men and women bring tremendous pride and accomplishments to King and we are extremely proud of them.
Therefore, each year, we invite alumni and friends to join in offering support through attendance at competitions and through financial gifts to offset budgetary expenses. Ensuring adequate travel arrangements is one of the ever increasing costs which can put a strain on the budget for our athlete programs. This impacts other areas of need, like equipment, officiating expenses, meals, accommodations, facilities maintenance and more.
As a member of the Tornado Athletic Club, you will be included in special events that allow you to get to know the coaches, student-athletes and other members of the campus community, in a more meaningful way. Your support is an investment in King Athletics and allows coaches and athletes to focus on their next competition secure in the knowledge their school and community are behind them.

As a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II member, King is responsible for the actions of allpersons and organizations engaged in activities that promote King's athletic interests. Therefore King must ensure that its coaches, student-athletes, faculty and staff, alumni, donors and friends abide by all NCAA regulations. It is especially important to note that recruitment of prospective student-athletes is the sole responsibility of King coaches. Representatives of our athletics interests (boosters) cannot be involved in the recruiting process.
We therefore need your cooperation to ensure our full compliance with NCAA rules. Violations of NCAA rules could affect the eligibility of prospects or current King student-athletes, result in penalties being imposed on King by the NCAA, and lead to restrictions on your involvement with King's athletics programs. Here is some important information that you should know.
