Welcome to GCU Men’s Club Basketball

Grand Canyon University is excited to continue the men’s club basketball program. Club basketball provides the opportunity for students to enhance their college experience by competing in a sport they love while also making new friends.

The season consists of about 20 games, including competition for regional and national championships in Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio. GCU’s teams will face local junior colleges and nationally ranked post-graduate programs. The men’s club basketball team offers a way for students to gain experience playing the sport competitively while also helping them balance their academics.

This is a great opportunity for Lopes to set team-oriented goals, build self-esteem and create lifelong relationships. Students in this program have the opportunity to travel and experience new sights, all while playing club basketball.
