The USC Women’s Volleyball Club team offers student-athletes the opportunity to compete at high level of competition, while having fun and creating lasting friendships on and off the court. Our program is composed of two teams, Cardinal and Gold, competing both regionally and nationally. With the help from our amazing coaches, Jessica King and Michael Ishimaru, the dedicated players in our club, and supporters like you, we look forward to another fun and competitive season.
Throughout the Fall and Spring, we practice twice a week with the bulk of our Spring season kicking off in January with our first tournament! During the season, you can see us play against other universities and colleges such as UCLA, UCSB, and UCSD within the Southern California Collegiate Volleyball League (SCCVL). Check out our schedule on our website (uscwclubvolleyball.weebly.com) and come out to support your Trojans!
Along with our involvement with the SCCVL, we will also travel to compete against hundreds of teams from across the country within the National Collegiate Volleyball Foundation (NCVF). Nationals this year are being held in Kansas City, Missouri! Our program is entirely run by elected student volunteers with advisement from the USC Recreational Club Council (RCC). For the 2019-2020 academic year, Audrey Brooke and Isabel Denardi are the Co-Presidents and represent the program to campus administration, organizations, and to regional/national club volleyball associations. With the help of our two amazing coaches, Jessica King and Michael Ishimaru, we strive to be our absolute best and compete at the highest level possible. Jessica lead our Gold team to a #5 ranking in the country in Division III!
Our annual budget is heavily reliant on player dues and donations from people like you! The RCC continues to support the program by providing some financial aid, but this is not enough to cover the expenses for funding our coaching staff, equipment, gear, and travel expenses. Your financial support will go directly to these things, and this year we hope that with increased support of $8,000, the team will be able to accomplish the following:
Travel to our Tournaments: Each year, travel is becoming increasingly more expensive. Hotel, gas, and airfare costs continue to rise and our budget needs to increase to account for the increasing costs. Travel costs take up the majority of our budget and we would like to continue to participate in as many tournaments as possible without having to sacrifice due to high costs.
Gear and Equipment: We would like to be able to purchase new gear and jerseys for both teams! The jerseys are passed down year to year but a lot of jerseys are missing or have holes in them (oh no!). We would like to be able to buy new sets of jerseys for both teams in a variety of sizes and colors. We are also planning on purchasing new nets and poles in hopes of having safe and reliable equipment for our players.
Your donations will help support the immediate and future needs of the program to help us achieve our goal of being the highest nationally ranked team in the NCVF! We hope that you will contribute in whatever way you can, and know that your support and involvement for the program, means a great deal to us! FIGHT ON!
