J Foundation

SFA Athletics announced Wednesday the launch of the J Association, an exclusive society for former SFA student-athletes. The J Association, as part of the Purple Lights Fund, is comprised exclusively of former Ladyjack and Lumberjack student-athletes who have lettered in their respective sport, as well as trainers, managers and coaches.

“We are excited to launch the J Association and create an avenue to celebrate, connect and grow the rich history and tradition of our entire athletics department and programs,” said SFA Director of Athletics Ryan Ivey. “Since its inception, SFA Athletics has led the way in numerous sports, led by many different student-athletes, and the J Association provides an opportunity to bring them all back together.”

Building upon the foundation of the Letterman’s Association, the primary objective of the J Association is to keep former student-athletes involved with SFA Athletics after their collegiate careers. The J Association can provide avenues for current student-athletes to network, connect, and learn from their predecessors from different generations of Lumberjacks and Ladyjacks.

“In order to achieve our vision of becoming the leading mid-major athletics department in the nation, it is critical that we have a robust avenue for our current student-athletes to engage with our former student-athletes,” Ivey added. “Recognizing and celebrating our past allows us to move forward with unity and inclusion. The J Association will provide an opportunity for our former Ladyjacks and Lumberjacks to be celebrated, honored and recognized while providing opportunities for success for future generations.”
