For the second year in a row, the UC Berkeley women's water polo club team has qualified for the collegiate club national championships. Currently ranked fourth in the country, we have a very good shot at winning a national title this year, but we need your help!
We are completely self-funded, which means each student member has had to pay upwards of $600 this year in fees in order to cover pool time, tournament fees, league fees, etc., and this amount does not even include tournament travel or hotel expenses! The out of pocket costs for airplane tickets, rental cars, hotels, and food are beginning to add up.
With the National Championships in Geneva, Ohio this year we are looking at a $500 plane ticket with an additional $200 or so to cover hotels, food, and rental cars, per person. We can't even afford to subsidize our coaches travel costs.
We are looking to raise at the very least $500, but have a goal of raising $2000 to help us subsidize the coaches costs and hopefully cover hotel, transportation and food costs for everyone!
You can donate directly on this UC Berkeley secure website and will receive a letter of recognition from the university of your donation. Anything you donate will be tax-deductible. If you are able to give even $5, please consider helping us. Every little bit helps us get closer to our dream of winning a National Championship.
