Current Championship Fund Initiatives
CMU Basketball Tournament (November 2013)
Our program is always striving to create positive and unique opportunities for our student athletes. A favorable basketball schedule always features an abundance of home games, and a home tournament will allow your Chippewas to benefit from this competitive advantage. By bringing teams to our tournament from around the country, we aim to build our fan base and escalate interest in CMU Basketball. Once established, a basketball tournament will be a source of revenue for our program and the surrounding community. As the best friends of CMU Basketball, Chippewa Champions would receive exclusive access to this annual event.
Fundraising goal = $50,000
It is important to present a first class image to any recruit who passes through the Men's Basketball program, as well as for our current players. We aim to upgrade our locker rooms to make them the best in the MAC. This initiative will include upgrades to our furniture, and the addition of an entertainment system. We also hope to construct a player lounge to provide our athletes with a place to unwind after a hard day on the court or in the classroom.
Fundraising goal = $10,000
Sound preparation is what makes a team successful on the court. New state of the art video equipment will allow our staff to develop more in-depth game plans tailored specifically to each opponent. Our athletes will also use the equipment to analyze their own performance and make the changes necessary to take their talents to the next level. By providing our coaches and players with this technology, you will help ensure that our team is making maximum strides in their off-court development.
Fundraising goal = $7,500
