Field Hockey Championship Fund
The success of our field hockey program is directly attributed to the support of our Chippewa Club members. Your continual support through the Chippewa Club has allowed our field hockey program to strive for championship success. The Championship Fund will build on this support to further enhance our program through specific objectives.

Current Championship Fund Initiatives
Whether it is evaluating an upcoming opponent or a future Chippewa, there is no question that having the latest technology allows us to develop an advantage over our competition. New recruiting software has enabled us to target prospects and develop more refined recruiting plans. However, there is an annual cost of about $2,000 that coincides with this program. In addition, our coaching staff is in need of new laptop computers. We hope to replace one computer every year.
Annual Cost: $10,000
Continuous Locker Room Improvements
The field hockey locker room is more than just a space for our players to hang their uniforms. It is a place to socialize with teammates, study upcoming opponents and unwind after a hard day on the field or in class.
Obviously, the most essential components of the locker room are the lockers themselves. As we continue to grow our team and recruit young women who will represent the Chippewas proudly on campus and in the community, we also need to accommodate such growth. We are in the process of adding four lockers to our locker room. A donation of $500 gives exclusive naming rights to a locker. Since it is a $500 gift, this donor would also become part of the Field Hockey Champions program!
Acknowledging our proud history and increasing the aesthetic appeal of our space is important not only for current players but for recruiting future Chippewas. Artwork and displays honoring our proud history connects us with that success and allows future Chippewas to project themselves as part of our Championship Culture.
Aesthetic Improvements: $5,000
