Massachusetts Women's Soccer
This point in our year is usually one of anticipation and excitement as we return to campus ready for another academic and athletic campaign. As you know, these last five months have been anything but usual for our coaches and student-athletes. Even in the face of uncertainty and adversity, they have shown tremendous resiliency in finding innovative ways to continue developing their team dynamics, sport specific training and, most importantly, their commitment to academic success.
We now stand at the onset of an academic year facing a 10-15% reduction (approximately $5M) to our athletic department budget. This will be felt by all our sport programs. As a result, we need to identify ways to handle our operations differently, all the while maintaining our commitment to educate, win, inspire, and invest. In an effort to bridge our resource gap, we launched #FlagshipForward, a fundraising and engagement campaign aimed at sustaining excellence in uncertain times.
Our coaches and student-athletes need your financial support now, more than ever, and we have set a fundraising goal to achieve over the next five days (August 3 – August 7). There has never been a more important time to show your commitment; please consider a gift to Massachusetts Women's Soccer today. All donations will have an immediate impact, and play a key role in their success both academically and athletically.
Your donations will go toward funding:
Sport Performance Psychology Program A 5-month soccer specific performance psychology academy that will engage our players and staff in new ways through the use of videos, whiteboard animations, & mental exercises to enhance our ability to prepare and perform at a even higher level.
PlayerTek GPS Tracking Devises In 2019 we started using GPS tracking devices in practices and matches to help us create our periodization schedule for the year and aid our staff and performance coach in establishing the ideal training loads to protect our players from injuries and prepare them for the physical demands to compete for A10 Championships and on the national stage.
Enhancements to Team Fueling Station We want to provide our players with the optimal nutritional supplements to ensure they are properly able to compete at the highest level as well as improve their ability to recover faster between highly intense training sessions and a schedule that requires 2 matches per week.
Thank you for your support of our Women's Soccer program! We look forward to seeing you soon.
