A Message from Rider Field Hockey!

We hope this message finds you and your family safe and healthy! We have been missing all you and hope the state of the pandemic continues to  improve so that we can get together soon.

On a positive note, despite having our season delayed until Spring, RUFH 20-21 had an extremely productive fall training period where we saw tremendous growth in our skill development and, more importantly, our team camaraderie.  We carried that momentum into the spring and won both the NEC Regular Season Title,  the NEC Tournament Title and a birth in the NCAA Tournament. It was an amazing experience that our players will never forget and we were so proud of their efforts and accomplishments.  It was a pleasure to come to practice each day and work with such a positive, hardworking and talented group of young women and we were so proud of the discipline that they showed in following all the guidelines that were in place to keep everyone healthy and safe.   

For the past 20 years our team has relied heavily on our fundraising activities, many of which had to be cancelled or postponed due to the pandemic, to provide our student-athletes with the little “extras” that make our program special.  We would like to continue being able to do so and are asking those who are in a position to help to consider supporting our team in donating to the program.   May 1st marks the opening day push for our annual Rider Athletics “Raise Your Game Challenge”. This year’s challenge will focus on alumni participation goals and any gifts of $35.00 or more will count in our favor.  However, please know that any amount possible would be welcomed and greatly appreciated.

We would like to thank all of our alumni who have already helped the field hockey program this year. It means so much to us that you continue to show your RUFH pride!  Your overwhelming support helped our program significantly and will allow us to provide the best equipment, uniforms, and travel accommodations for our players. We invite all of you to invest in this new generation of student-athletes and help us maintain our strong traditions that make Rider proud.  We need your help more than ever as we work to reach our goal and keep our successful streak going with the “Raise Your Game Challenge!”  

Stay safe and healthy!

Here’s to another great year! Go Broncs!

All the Best,

Lori, Dan, Gina, Kelly and Team

Description

The Raise Your Game Challenge is a competition to promote athletics fundraising for each Rider team. The Challenge runs annually from June 1 to May 31. Since 2010, in partnership with Rider's Office of University Advancement, the Department of Athletics has issued an annual challenge to former athletes to participate in a fundraising effort that directly benefits their sport. The goal is to increase participation from each team’s former athletes and to raise funds for their team booster accounts. Gifts of at least $35 from former athletes will count toward their team’s goal.

Donations are applied to...

All of the money raised will go directly to the respective team's individual booster account. Each team will also earn additional funds if they reach their program goal. The prize money earned will be utilized to help each program's operating budget.

Why are donations necessary?

Gifts to each team help support the needs of our current student-athletes and coaches. The goal is to have the philanthropic participation of current athletes, athletic alumni, parents and friends set the standard for the entire university. In order to accomplish this, we need you to help us Raise Our Game!! Gifts help each program significantly and allow them to provide the best equipment, uniforms, travel accommodations and much more for our players.
