Women's Club Soccer: Let's Go To Nationals!
Team sports serve many women as a vehicle for maintaining health, building confidence, and fostering friendships. With UCLA club soccer, women who love soccer and enjoy competing at a high level can continue to do so while engaged in rigorous academic studies and a variety of extracurricular activities.
As a student-run club that is only partially funded by UCLA, we rely on individual player contributions and community donations to fund our travel, especially this year as we look to bring home another national title. This fall, our national tournament is in Foley, Alabama, November 17th through 19th. As the cost is about $1,000 per player, we are aiming to raise an ultimate goal of $25,000 before that time. For this campaign, we are going to start by seeking half of this amount. Thanks to the support of you, our family and friends, we can aim to reach our starting goal of $13,000 and cover our costs to play our favorite game. We appreciate all the help we can get, as competing at a higher level of play while focusing on our studies at school is a dream come true for all of us.
The UCLA women's club soccer team is a tight knit group of women who pride themselves on competing at a nationally ranked level while maintaining academic excellence and integrity on and off the field. As scholar athletes, practicing three times a week (with games on the weekends), we devote our time and energy to cultivating healthy balance in our lives. Historically, this hard work has paid off. This past year, in 2015, the team won the open division of the NIRSA national competition and hopes to return this fall to the closed division in Alabama.
Between the airfare for flights, lodging in different cities, and car rental fees, this is a costly experience for the team, and we ask for your help in making these priceless memories possible for us. Please help us reach our goal of playing in our national competition in Foley, Alabama by donating what you are able. All of your help is greatly appreciated, and with your assistance we will be able to make it to Alabama to play in this major competition.
In combination with tuition and housing costs that go along with attending a prestigious university such as UCLA, our trip to Nationals is a mostly self-funded endeavor. This can be a struggle for some players, as not everyone can fully afford all the costs of travel and more. With the assistance of fundraising and your donations, we can make it possible for students to not have to stress about the high financial costs that comes with playing at this level. As students juggling school, work, clubs, and sports, the women on this team are trying our best to make our traveling affordable and convenient for everyone. We need your help and support to get us all to Foley, Alabama as a united front.
Without you, our efforts to get to our national tournament will not be possible. Please consider a tax-deductible gift associated with the perks listed on the website, and join our team in support of our dreams to continue playing soccer in our college years!
