Thank you for choosing to support men’s basketball during the UMW Athletics #CallingAllEagles Challenge!
The University of Mary Washington Men’s Basketball Program is built on three pillars: the person, student, and the athlete. We pride ourselves on recruiting and retaining quality young men, and know that the first step to success is surrounding ourselves with good people. We want our players to understand the importance of academics and make them their highest priority. This past semester we recorded our programs highest cumulative GPA with over a 3.1. At UMW it is our mission to develop the true student-athlete. On the court, our program has made great strides and competes at a very high level against the top teams in the country. We play a very fast paced, fun style of basketball, based on developing the strength of our team through each individual’s strengths.
With an average roster of 15 players, our fundraising efforts are a priority to our student-athlete experience. As our program continues to grow so do our needs in all areas of our program:
- Team travel is a major area for our fundraising. As we strive to provide our players the opportunity to compete against the best, we need to travel out of the region and compete at top level tournaments nationally.
- Our student-athlete experience overall is directly affected by our budget and fundraising capabilities.
- In addition, we try to provide our student-athletes with all of the gear and accessories they need for success, which certainly goes well beyond what a department’s budget can provide.
Thank you so much for your support of UMW Basketball and for helping us toward our goal of $10,000!
