Pitt Women's Water Polo
Although their campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to support Pitt Women's Club Water Polo, you may always do so here.
Who are we?
Pitt Women's Club Water Polo is a team of sixteen undergraduate and graduate students. We are a very close-knit team both in and out of the pool.
Over the past few years our team has become stronger and stronger. In 2015, we were voted Pitt's Club Sports Team of the Year, and last year we won our division for the first time and traveled to compete in the national tournament. This year we won our division for the second time, and are competing and hosting Nationals!
Our team is lead by our fearless coach Adrienne Fyock, whose expertise and enthusiasm for water polo has grown us into the team we are today. Along with our coach, we have an amazing support system in our families and fans, who come out to cheer for us at our games and help us fuel up for the fight with delicious snacks in-between games.
Every year our team pays about $2,700 to the Collegiate Water Polo Association for league dues. This covers costs of in-season tournaments, referees at games, and general administration that is necessary to run the league. We are hoping to offset the cost of these dues by asking you to donate and help us reach a $2,000 goal.
Any additional money we raise past the funds needed to pay our league dues will go to covering general expenses, such as competition entry fees and travel expenses. Due to the nature of our competition season, we travel to 4-5 tournaments each year. Expenses associated with traveling to our tournaments include:
- Transportation to and from tournament locations up to 5 hours away for 20 people
- Two nights in a hotel for 20 people, per tournament
How can you help?
There are plenty of ways you can support Pitt Polo! Donations, sharing our link, spreading the word, and cheering us on as we go into the rest of our season tournaments are a couple ideas of how you can help us have our best season yet. If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to email our business manager, Claire Schafer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How donating through EngagePitt works: Every donation is tax deductible (you will receive a tax receipt) and 100% of the proceeds go directly to Pitt Polo. You can donate using one of the pre-determined levels, or choose your own amount.
We look forward to interacting with you and keeping you up to date as the season and our campaign progress!
