At the close of the fall season, the Northeastern University Women’s Club Volleyball team is ranked second in the Northeast Women’s Volleyball Club League (NWVCL), a league composed of 60 collegiate teams in the Northeast region. We earned impressive top-three finishes in all four of our tournaments.
Having established ourselves as one of the most formidable teams in the league, we can't wait to get back on the court at the start of the spring semester and work for that No. 1 spot! With the strongest roster the team has had in years, we are confident in our ability to win a medal in our division at the National Collegiate Volleyball Federation (NCVF) National Championships, which will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, in April 2015.
We are more focused than ever in reaching this ultimate goal. Despite the demanding nature of our academic concentrations, we practice three nights a week and dedicate several consecutive weekends to competing in tournaments. Each individual is as devoted as the next with the same goal in mind: to leave it all on the court every single time.
A shared love of volleyball brought us together, while a love for competing alongside each other has forged bonds between us that manifest far beyond the court. With this unity comes a fierce sense of pride. We are all proud to wear "Northeaster" on our jerseys and we can only hope for the opportunity to do so at the national level. That’s where you come in!
On a yearly basis, the average cost to run our team is about $10,000 and much of it goes toward traveling to the national championship. Each year, we participate in a number of fundraising activities, including promotions with local restaurants, scorekeeping/libero-tracking all varsity volleyball games, and helping out at other university athletic events. Unfortunately, it is not enough. We are asking for your support in raising just a small fraction of that amount, which will bring us one step closer to winning those medals!
So please, help us get to Kansas City to make Northeastern proud! Our team is grateful for any level of support you can provide. Each contribution, small or large, will have a tremendous impact on our team. Thank you for your consideration and, as always, GO HUSKIES!
Our initial Catalyst goal is to raise $1,500. This money will be used to pay for hotel rooms to accommodate our team at the 2015 National Collegiate Volleyball Federation National Championships in Kansas City this April.
Now that we have reached our initial goal, we hope to raise an additional $1,500. This money will be used to pay for our airfare to and from Kansas City for the 2015 National Collegiate Volleyball Federation National Championships.
Northeastern University Women’s Club Volleyball is a member of the Northeast Women’s Volleyball Club League (NWVCL) and the National Collegiate Volleyball Federation (NCVF).
