Since the inaugural Point Park University Athletics Alumni Weekend in the fall of 2011, the Pioneers athletic department has hosted this yearly tradition for Pioneer alums.
The Point Park University Athletics Alumni Weekend got its start in 2009 with the hosting of the Baseball & Softball Alumni Reunion Games in October. In the fall of 2010, Point Park held its 50th Anniversary Celebration, an event that included athletics alumni reunion games for baseball, softball, volleyball and men's and women's soccer as well as the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
Following the success of the athletics portion of the 50th Anniversary Celebration, the inaugural Point Park University Athletics Alumni Weekend was held in the fall of 2011. The Point Park Athletics Golf Outing was held for the first time that year and was added to the start of the weekend, which also included the alumni reunion games and the Hall of Fame induction.
