The Northeastern women’s club basketball team is a tight knit group of motivated young women, most of whom have grown up playing basketball, and enjoy the opportunity to continue in college. Our passion for the sport brings us together on and off the court. The 2015-2016 season is in full swing and the team is looking forward to proving ourselves in a number of tournaments in the upcoming months.
Over the past few years, Northeastern Women’s Club Basketball has emerged as a strong force in the club sports world. In February 2009 and 2010, we competed in and won the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association Regional Tournament in Boston, making us regional champions. We also attended Nationals in Detroit and Nashville, emerging as the Women’s Club Basketball National Champions in those years. Most recently, our team was 2015 NIRSA regional champions and went on to compete at nationals in Raleigh, North Carolina. We are working hard to repeat that amazing accomplishment this season!
As a team, we are incredibly proud to wear the Northeastern logo on our jerseys. We are committed to being a positive force in the Northeastern community, and excited to be able to compete in national and regional tournaments and hopefully bring a title back to Boston. We believe that we exemplify the Northeastern community through our passion, commitment, and positivity.
To help continue our success, we would like to ask you for support which would help our club in numerous ways through the end of the season. All gifts to the women’s club basketball team are tax deductible and directly supplement our operating budget, which includes equipment, travel expenses, and tournament fees. This year, we are working hard to win a regional tournament and make it back to nationals! Your help is greatly appreciated.
Our initial goal is to raise $500 via Catalyst. This money will go towards registration fees for our regional tournaments where we will compete against the top teams in the region to qualify for nationals.
Our stretch goal is to raise an additional $1,000. This money will go towards equipment costs and tournament fees as well as travel and lodging expenses.
Northeastern Women's Club Basketball is a part of the club sports organization at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. We compete in NIRSA regional tournaments around the Northeast, and have competed in the national tournament multiple times. We practice two to three time a week beginning in September, continuing until the National tournament in April.
