Pronghorn Athletics challenges and empowers student athletes by delivering a unique undergraduate and graduate experience that inspires excellence and leaves a lasting impression on our student-athletes. Our athletic program is integral to the educational process and strives to provide meaningful competitive experiences that prepare our student athletes for future success and foster a lifetime commitment to wellness.
Pronghorn Athletics fuels the U of L spirit in our community; both internally and externally. We ignite a passion and instill a work ethic in our student athletes, through the delivery of a uniquely personalized high performance program, as they pursue their academic, athletic and personal goals. That pursuit of excellence includes competing and striving for the pinnacle of their chosen sport.
We recognize that the development of a student-athlete as a future leader cannot be done without the purposeful engagement and active involvement of that student athlete in their broader community. Pronghorn Athletics continuously focuses on the value of a community committed to the University and actively fosters meaningful relationships with our alumni, the broader southern Alberta community and Pronghorn supporters wherever they may be.
“With the support of our Pronghorn family we are providing an opportunity for student-athletes to maximize their potential and to recognize the positive influence they can have both within our community and within the University itself. As Pronghorns we are an extension of the University of Lethbridge community and we honour and respect that responsibility. Our success is in large part because of the continued interest and support we receive from you so, on behalf of our student athletes, coaches and administrative team members, I thank you.” – Ken McInnes, Executive Director, Sport and Recreation Services
