Gael ForceGael Force is the official student spirit club of the Saint Mary's Gaels. Created in 2001, it has quickly grown into the largest student organization on campus.  Nearly two-thirds of the entire undergraduate population at Saint Mary's are members of Gael Force.  The club plays a vital role in the success of our athletic teams. Gael Force's support and enthusiasm has made Saint Mary's one of the toughest places to play on the West Coast.

A few seasons ago Davidson coach Bob McKillop had this to say about the McKeon Pavilion atmosphere: "It just blows my mind that they have this kind of crowd. This is very similar to [Duke's] Cameron [Indoor Stadium] in terms of the noise level, the heat, the intensity, the passion. Saint Mary's deserves credit for having a crowd that's that supportive."

Membership benefits include:
  • Free admission to all Saint Mary's home athletic events (priority to premium games)
  • Exclusive Under Armour Gael Force t-shirt each year of membership
  • Priority lower level seating at home men's basketball games (limit 700 students)
  • Invitations to exclusive Gael Force socials, tailgates and events
  • Free bus transportation & game ticket to 1 local men's basketball away sporting event* (ex: Santa Clara, Stanford, USF) *pre-determined by athletics
  • Free tickets to WCC Basketball Championships
  • 1 Gael Force exclusive giveaway at a home basketball game 
  • Social Media updates about game days and other Gael Force events
