In order to continue building upon our success, we need your support as we raise funds for training technology and new experiences for our student-athletes. The highlight of our offseason training is participation in The Program. Utilized by top professional sports franchises, The Program, is a leadership and team building camp designed to reinforce our team culture and ensure our student-athletes are focused on accomplishing their goals on the court and in the classroom. Each year we travel to Wisconsin to play Milwaukee and Green Bay in key Horizon League games. Being able to travel via charter flight is vital, as it allows our student-athletes to miss less class time and prevents travel fatigue. Wearing the Black and Gold in competition creates lifelong memories, and we thank you for your support of Oakland University Athletics and our Women’s Basketball program.
Your donation will assist in providing the following experiences to our student-athletes:
• The Program – an elite leadership program focused on cohesive team building and personal development to foster a championship culture
• Stability Enhancement System (SES) – training technology dedicated to reducing injury risk in athletes through personalized testing
• Charter flight for conference matchups at Milwaukee and Green Bay
• Alumni Reunion Dinner
• Summer Reading Program
Oakland University Athletics is committed to providing a first-class experience for our student-athletes during their time as Golden Grizzlies, striving to develop champions in the classroom, in competition and in the community. We had a banner year in 2016-17, capturing the Horizon League all-sports championship—the McCafferty Trophy—for the third consecutive year—a feat not achieved in a decade. For eight consecutive semesters, our student-athletes have led the Horizon League in Academic Honor Roll selections, with 293 student-athletes achieving that honor this past year. Your support allows us to continue building upon these successes.
