Saints Student Athletic Association (SSAA)

The Saints Student Athletic Association encourages St.Clair's students to make constructive use of leisure time to acquire new physical skills and enhance fitness. The S.S.A.A. intramurals programs stimulate social interaction with other students, facilitating the development of proper attitudes and sportsmanship.

Intramurals Include:
Recreational activities, individual and team sports, competition, tournaments, day trips, and special events.

You Can Participate If:
You are a full-time student who has paid the Student Service Fee. Part-time students do not have the service fee built into their tuition costs and therefore must pay it before participating. Varsity team members are not allowed to compete in their respective sports with some exceptions (Check individual sports rules).

You Can Sign Up By:
Visiting the Student Athletic Association office in Room 173. Sign up sheets are available for all sports/activities for students.

Aquatic Services:
Aquatic Services offers the use of the swimming pool to all college students free of charge. Recreational Swimming & Lap Swimming is available to the students year-round with a valid student ID card. Please visit for an up to date schedule of available times and activities.
