Viking Family- Help Support our amazing Student-Athletes!
We are so proud of our student-athletes. This has been a very challenging time and their commitment to not only each other on the field, but off the field as well has been truly inspiring. They have been resilient in their efforts to stay safe, allowing us the best opportunity to continue to train, and put ourselves in the best position to play games starting this spring. As we prepare and train for our upcoming season we invite you to invest in the WWU Women's Soccer program to help elevate the overall experience for our student-athletes both on and off the field. Our Goal this year is to raise $5,000. That $5,000 would go towards things like:
- GEAR: FOR BOTH TRAINING AND GAMES AS WELL AS APPAREL FOR BOTH TRAVEL AND HOME
Our goal is to make sure the players have the proper gear to be successful for any type of weather we might play in. This includes providing them (to name a few) both short and long sleeved jerseys, short and long sleeved training tops, hoodie sweatshirts, zip-up hoodie sweatshirts, puffy coats, rain jackets, training shorts and pants.
- TRAVEL: SUCH AS PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES TO COMPETE AGAINST THE TOP TEAMS IN THE COUNTRY, AS WELL AS LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF SCHOOL MISSED BY AFFORDING BETTER FLIGHT OPTIONS, AS WELL AS PROVIDING THE OPPORTUNITY FOR FUN ACTIVITIES
We aim to miss as little school as possible when travelling, and being able to change our flights in order to accommodate this is crucial to the success of our student-athletes. We also like to be able to offer our players unique experiences on the road, and some of those activities cost money. A few years ago, we were able to take our team to the Denver Zoo and the players loved it.
- TEAM MEALS: BOTH ON THE ROAD AND AT HOME DURING PRE-SEASON, CONFERENCE PLAY, AND THE POST SEASON IS ESSENTIAL TO THE SUCCESS ON THE FIELD
Being able to provide a meal for our players during the pre-season, or during the beginning of the post season is a great way to promote and foster team chemistry, as well as give our players a chance to spend time together off the field. This group seems to really enjoy Chipotle.
- EQUIPMENT: TO CONTINUE TO SUPPLEMENT AND UPDATE OUR TRAINING EQUIPMENT TO ADD TO SESSIONS, AS WELL ADD TO OUR LOCKER ROOM TO ENHANCE THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE FOR OUR PLAYERS
We are so lucky to have one of the most beautiful facilities in the country to train and play our games on. With your help, we can continue to update our training equipment (training sticks, ladders, soccer balls, etc.) which will elevate our training sessions and help us get one step closer to our goals each day. We also are so lucky to have a locker room at the field for our players to be able to utilize everyday. We are always looking for new ways to make this space better for our players, and with your help we can create a space that they will be proud to call their own.
By donating to our program you will be enhancing either our team gear, travel, help sponsor a team meal, or help us purchase and maintain our training equipment. More importantly, your donation will be providing opportunities for growth with each of our student-athletes not only as soccer players, but as people. Every gift helps! Each donation will go directly back to the student-athletes in one of the ways listed above. We truly appreciate your investment in these amazing young women.
We also invite you to support the team by attending games, as well as by sharing our VikingFunder on your social media outlets. The more our Viking Family can grow, the better!
