The goal of Castleton Athletics is to provide our student-athletes with the best experience possible. We want them to leave Castleton with fond memories of their college years and skills that will serve them throughout their lifetimes. An important part of that is the financial commitment we make to each individual team. Adequate funding helps the college hire coaches, provide outstanding facilities, and support the team in meeting their day-to-day operational needs.
While each sport is supported by the college's annual operating budget, it is critical that we raise additional funds to meet the needs that go above and beyond this amount. Each fall the coaching staffs of each team reflect on their progress, outline their goals, and identify program needs. This wish list of needs represents any additional requests coaches have for the annual operation of their program. Traditionally, this includes the replacement or enhancement of equipment to meet sport-specific training needs, video equipment, and funding for unique competition opportunities.
When you invest in Castleton student-athletes, you put them in a position to be at the top of their game on the field and in the classroom. With the ever-increasing cost of competing at the NCAA Division III level, donations from friends, family, and fans help to ensure that the coaches and student-athletes have everything they need to compete for championships.
