Athletic Uniforms ($15,000)
Rochester College supports men’s athletic teams in basketball, baseball, soccer, golf, and hockey, and women’s teams in basketball, volleyball, soccer, golf, and cross country.
The college competes in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), and the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA). The college has captured national championships in men’s basketball, men’s cross country, men’s soccer, men’s golf, women’s volleyball, and women’s softball.
The athletic program at Rochester College competes successfully, but more importantly it changes lives. Many athletes have enrolled in order to play their particular sport, but have ended up leaving the college with a new direction in life.
After a winning season, one of Garth Pleasant’s team members asked, “How do you think we did?” Coach Pleasant responded, “After I see what kind of men, husbands, and citizens you have become in 20 years, I’ll know how good of a job we did.” That philosophy is important at Rochester College.
For the 2013-14 academic year, $15,000 is budgeted for uniforms and practice gear and you can help us FUNDit. We want the Warriors to look good as they represent the college at both home and away competition. Help us build upon a tradition of excellence in athletics while changing lives.
