Dear GSU Tiger Friends and Family,
The Grambling State University women’s soccer team is gearing up to 2018 soccer season. We are striving to be an organization founded upon the values of hard work, determination, unity, a love for the game and for each other. We are motivated to train to become champions and compete as one of the top college soccer teams in the country in coming years. GSU Soccer competes in the Southwest Athletics Conference as members of the NCAA Division 1 level. It takes hard work and dedication from our student-athletes and coaching staff to be consistently successful, it also takes a certain financial responsibility to be competitive nationally. Being a small University, we are asking for any help that you might be willing to give to help finance much needed equipment, uniforms, team warm ups and travel expenses for the student-athletes; or funds to provide scholarship opportunities for current and future Tigers within our program. These young women not only excel on the soccer field but also in the classroom posting the highest team GPA of any sport last year at GSU. We aim to try to make a difference in the lives of the people we meet and set good examples for them to look up to. The team had an exciting season last year going 11-7-2 narrowly missing the NCAA tournament after falling in a shoot-out of the conference championship game.
Our team is running a Quest for Excellence fundraising campaign again this year. This fundraising effort allows for friends, relatives, philanthropists and associates outside of the program to assist the women’s soccer team to grow and become successful on both the regional and national level. We are requesting your help by contributing at whatever level you are comfortable, with the assurance that all donations will go towards helping our soccer team to be successful year after year. These funds help to pay for our pre-season team bonding activities, additional team and training gear, equipment, and activities we host for the team on a regular basis. Your efforts will assist with the expenses of running a competitive collegiate soccer program, and allow our student athletes to focus more time and energy in practice, games and in the classroom.
If you choose to donate, you can do it two ways. You can do it online through an automated system that we use for our camps that go's directly into the athletic soccer fund to help the team, or you can write a check to GUAF and put Women's Soccer Donation on the memo line. Support can be given in any amount by choosing one of the increments listed on the next page or filling in the ‘other amount’ option. I would like to thank you in advance for your consideration and support of Grambling State Women’s Soccer in helping the soccer team to reach our goals. This effort will go a long ways in helping our team to be sustainable and successful for the future. We appreciate your support. We hope to see you at our games this fall cheering for the team. Follow us online at GSU Tigers, or on our team face book page Grambling State University Soccer for weekly pictures and info.
Sincerely, Coach Justin Wagar
Head Soccer Coach
