Reason

As a student-athlete, one can grow both personally and competitively by being a part of a team within a NCAA Division II sports program at Anderson University. Competition is at the core of the athletic experience at AU. The locker room enhancements desired will expand the opportunity for our Men and Women’s Basketball programs to compete at the highest level both on the floor and in recruiting. The desire to be a teammate, the focus on personal goals, and the development of the will to win is what every coach and student-athlete strives for on a daily basis. Through support of our A Day Cause, your funds will provide our student-athletes and our athletic programs with an enhanced preparation environment that will set us apart from other programs in the South Atlantic Conference. We expect our men’s and women’s basketball programs to compete at the highest level and in order to prepare them for this, we must provide our student-athletes with the very best locker room setting to aid in making success a reality. The need for new locker rooms is evident for these programs and now is the time to partner with us in providing our student-athletes with access to essential space and resources to better prepare for the grind of a NCAA college schedule, as well as provide our coaches with another resource to attract top quality students to our growing and vibrant campus community.

ImpactŸ

Daily practice and competition are disciplines all athletes must embrace to reach their full potential. It is critical that our student-athletes have the best locker room space in preparing for the physical and mental challenges associated with our pursuit of excellence both on and off the court of competition. Just as the university seeks to provide the best learning environments, labs, technology and instruction for our students to excel in academics, we now have a necessary and significant opportunity to provide the very best environment for our basketball programs, coaches, and student-athletes to train and prepare for excellence in their sports.
