We invite you to take a look at some of the initiatives the women's basketball program has identified as worthy of its championship funds. In becoming a Chippewa Champion, you play a significant part in ensuring these projects are completed. [Championship Fund initiatives]

Chippewa Champions Event –
In developing a single united entity with Chippewa Champions, we wanted to have an event that recognizes ALL of our members no matter which sport they support. This event will likely occur in conjunction with Homecoming – a time of year when many people return to campus. Homecoming is bigger than just a football game and this event is bigger than any single program.

Women's Basketball Events A spirit of togetherness between our programs and their closest friends is what lies at the heart of Chippewa Champions. Throughout the year we will hold a number of events to celebrate and recognize the Women's Basketball Chippewa Champions – the people who help make success possible. Information regarding time and place will be placed on this page, or you may contact the Chippewa Athletic Fund liaison listed below.

Event #1: Join us for the 6th Annual Meet and Greet at Max and Emily's on Wednesday, October 17, 2012.  A $10 fee will be charged at the door.

Event #2: The intrasquad Maroon and Gold game will be held on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at noon in McGuirk Arena.  This is a great opportunity for you to see the team in action before the season begins!

Event #3- 4: The Courtside Club Lounge will be open for Chippewa Champions and guests on Thursday, November 29, 2012 and  Sunday, January 13, 2013. 

Event #5: The Upper Club Lounge will be open for an Alumni event on Saturday, January 26, 2013. Chippewa Champions are invited and encouraged to come!

Event #6– 7: The Courtside Club Lounge will be open for Chippewa Champions and guests on Sunday, February 10, 2013 and Sunday, February 24, 2013. 


Our former Chippewa student-athletes are among the greatest resources for current athletes. You are a link to our tradition of greatness and your achievements beyond Mount Pleasant extend our reach by bringing notoriety and prestige to our programs. CMU Athletics has success today, in large part, because of our special alumni.

Chippewa Champions presents a unique opportunity for our programs and letterwinners to re-connect. It allows our former letterwinners to remain a part of the inner circle of CMU Athletics and to contribute financially to the success of current and future student-athletes. In becoming a Chippewa Champion, our former athletes ensure that their positive impact on the program didn't end after their final competitive performance.
