New Year >>> New Challenge
The Aggies are back! After a year of uncertainty, unavoidable changes, and unrelenting anticipation, we are returning to competition and our typical start of the academic year. To aid us in our effort to come back in peak form, we present the Champions Achieve Challenge – a call for ALL Aggies to come together with a single purpose – Champion Achievement in ’21-’22.
Achievement is defined by three main components: skill, effort, and courage
Our student-athletes are skilled beyond belief. They navigate the daily challenges of practice, conditioning, studying, and preparing to compete at the highest possible level. They have dedicated years to their sport and their abilities shine through.
One thing we know for sure is that effort and attitude is what makes the difference between a good and great program. Our team trains for the biggest moments and pushes through challenges with maximum efforts and great attitudes. Like the generations of Aggies who came before them, they recognize the advantage of optimum efforts and positive attitudes, both in competition and in their pursuit of a degree.
While most programs across the country can exhibit skill and effort, it is our courage that sets us apart from the rest. Over the past 18 months, I have witnessed an unmatched level of courage and determination. Our team has pushed through the most challenging circumstances and stand ready to get back this year.
With your help, our goals will be reached! Participation and resources are what will push us forward to becoming champions. Please accept the Champions Achieve Challenge today and show your support by making an online contribution.
Our program seeks your financial support now, and we have set a goal – to receive a donation from 40 donors during the challenge (September 14-18). Your gift in support of swimming & diving during this challenge will make a world of difference. Your generous contribution will go towards supporting UC Davis Swimming & Diving.
