THANK YOU! We had an amazing week during the Champions Adapt Challenge, and have you to thank for it. Although this challenge is finished, you can still support our program by making a donation at: https://give.ucdavis.edu/ICAI. Go Ags!
The fall in Davis is traditionally a time of incredible anticipation, renewed feelings of energy for the coming year, and sights and sounds of athletics activities all over our campus. However, in 2020, these traditions have been put on hold as we, along with the rest of our peers, prepare for the return of normal activity on our college campus. Your Aggie softball team is anxiously awaiting the time we can get back on the field and prepare together for another exciting season in the spring of 2021.
Like the generations of Aggies who have come before us, we are looking for opportunities in this challenge we currently face. We refuse to be still during this break, and we choose to do what champions would…we will adapt. The Champions Adapt Challenge (#ChampionsAdapt2020) is all about maximizing our potential and sprinting out of the gates when competition resumes. Like all champions, we know this will be a team effort, and you can be a big part of our team.
The week of October 12-18 was scheduled to be Homecoming week on campus, one that brings alumni back, old traditions out, and a full slate of home athletics events. With the loss of traditional revenue streams this year from associated events, we are forced to adapt to generate support for our program. Instead of pep rallies and tailgating, we will be on our phones, our email, and on social media spreading the word about the Champions Adapt Challenge.
Our program seeks your financial support now, and we have set a fundraising goal to achieve during this week-long effort. Please join us as we adapt to the opportunity presented to us, where we can position ourselves to be champions. Your gift in support of softball during this campaign and make a world of difference today to set us up for when we do return to the field. Every dollar contributed will go directly and exclusively towards UC Davis Softball.
Our top priorities include:
- Special Impact Items (Ex. Sport Specific Technology, Mental Training Tools, Yoga Instruction, etc.)
- Team Bonding Experiences/Activities
- Extra Ordinary Pre-Season Tournament Travel Expenses
