Cru Kids has been such a great opportunity for our kids to fall in love with the place we call home. From tea parties to basketball games and even ornament craft days, we have loved watching our kids enjoy UMHB.

Cru Kids Day at Crusader Stadium

October 26

C – R – U – S – A –D – E – R –S!

Your Cru Kid will get to spend time on the field of Crusader Stadium with Crunk, the UMHB mascot, hangout with the UMHB football team, members of UMHB Cru Cheer, and the Sader Belles.

This special event is part of our Homecoming festivities and is the only opportunity that kids get to experience Crusader Stadium as our team does! Each of our Cru Kids will get special temporary tattoos, footballs, and pom-poms to help their Cru Spirit. This is the perfect photo op for parents to get that TRUE CRU photo.
