Our coaches work hard to make our team competitive in every aspect of NCAA Division I competition, including generating and managing our program’s resources. Your contribution will play a crucial role to the success of the soccer team. Please know that SUU is indeed grateful for your support to our program and feel confident that with your help we will reach our goal of becoming a force in the Big Sky and advancing to the conference tournament this fall. With the support of generous fans like you, we have recently made improvements to our equipment and facilities that have enhanced our training and helped us draw closer to competing at the highest levels. We know now that we can compete with anyone on the field, and as we continue to make improvements in other areas of our program, it is exciting to think what we can accomplish as a team here at SUU. Some of our achievements from last season demonstrate the building momentum that we would like to invite you to be a part of. • • • • • • •

Thank you for your generous contribution to the soccer team. Division I Athletics is costly and itâ€™s difficult to be competitive without the help of our supporters. Your generous contribution will pay for the expenses that our budget cannot cover. We have dedicated funds to providing improved nutrition for our athletes, updating our facility with implements to complete strength and conditioning drills on the field, enhanced technology for video editing software and the latest innovations in soccer equipment. We are in need of additional funding to continue to provide the best student-athlete experience possible for our athletes, as well as affording our athletes the opportunity to be competitive at this level.
