Catbacker Clubs throughout the state help promote K-State Athletics and assist in fundraising efforts for the Ahearn Fund. Each year the Catbackers make a significant contribution to the Ahearn Fund, which provides scholarships for over 450 Wildcat Student-Athletes. Each Catbacker Club is a direct link to the K-State Athletic Department and provides a great opportunity to meet other K-Staters in your area.

Catbacker Clubs are co-sponsored by K-State Athletics and the K-State Alumni Association. These groups are located only within the state of Kansas.

Catbacker Summer Tour

Once a year the K-State Athletics Department travels to many of the Catbacker Clubs for an annual event. These events are a great opportunity for you to meet some of your favorite Wildcat coaches and student-athletes. Many locations have golf tournaments and banquets, making for a great day for Wildcats of all ages.

Inflatable games and gift bags for all kids in attendance, unique ticket packages and exclusive auction items and giveaways.

Find an event in your area and come out and see us!
