UCLA Women's Club Basketball Inaugural Season Fundraiser!!
In early 2017, a small group of UCLA students gathered in Pauley Pavilion with a shared love of basketball and a desire to play at a competitive level. One year later, the UCLA Women's Club Basketball Team has officially been formed.
This hardworking group of girls is determined to create a presence on campus and is quickly becoming one of the most competitive Women's Club Basketball programs on the West Coast - but they need your help! With the creation of a new program comes many costs: travel, referees, tournament fees, and uniforms are a few of the many costs that come up as we try and get our program up and running. We are doing everything we can to make our program as successful as possible, but would be so appreciative of any support we can get!
Without an established group of alumni, finding donations for our fees has proven difficult, and as a group of full-time college students, any help goes a long way! Please consider making a donation to our program in any amount to support our efforts to establish the team as a program on campus and to help us achieve our goals as we begin to compete against other programs in the new year. Check out our "levels" section to see just what your donation can give to us - even a little goes such a long way and allows us to build and succeed! Thank you so much for your time . . . we hope to see you at a game soon! Go Bruins!
-Lindsay Anderson, UCLA Women's Club Basketball Director of Fundraising (and the rest of the team, too!)
The girls of UCLA Women's Club Basketball all share a love for the sport. Each individual played high school varsity and wishes to continue to compete while furthering their education across a broad pool of majors including sociology, psychology, MIMG, bioengineering, biology, political science, and MCDP. All of these Bruins are hardworking and passionate, both in their studies and on the court.
Despite the demands of the classroom, the girls still find the time to make it to the gym and play the game they love. Several of the Bruins describe their ardor for the sport:
Support our passion and donate today! Your donation will directly go towards the demanding expenses of the club. In return, we promise to work hard and pursue victory with honor.
As a very young club (established in 2017), the UCLA Women's Club Basketball program lacks many resources, including experience, gear, and an alumni base. In these early years, we must strive to build our program well. We aim to raise money to help cover this season's expenses and create a strong foundation for the future years of the program.
Club basketball requires expenses for articles such as equipment (uniforms, gear, basketballs), tournament fees, travel costs (transportation, lodging, food), in addition to a myriad of other items. With a minimal or nonexistent budget, running the program is impossible. A donation, however, can help the club basketball girls compete and fulfill their passions.
This season, the UCLA Women's Club Basketball plans to drive to Sacramento, California for the NIRSA Regional Basketball Championships hosted by Sacramento State University from February 23-25. In order to accomplish this, we must find a means to cover transportation, lodging, and tournament fees. Aid us with competing at the regional level so that we may have a chance to be the champion! If we are triumphant, we earn a spot in the NIRSA National Basketball Tournament at Ohio State in April . . .
Help us fight our way to victory!!!
