Support from Alumni, Parents, and Friends
Alumni, parents, and other supporters provide vital support to Dartmouth Women's Volleyball through a variety of means as described below. Please note that all such involvement must comply with NCAA and Ivy League regulations. For further information or clarification on NCAA or Ivy League rules, call the Dartmouth Athletics compliance office at (603) 646-1496 or email Dartmouth.Athletics@Dartmouth.edu
Friends of Dartmouth Women's Volleyball
Annual Friends donations help fund assistant coaches’ salaries, out-of-region and international team trips (including the team’s trip to the Dominican Republic in March 2008), special equipment purchases, and other needs essential to operating a first-class varsity program. Contributors receive periodic updates from Coach Erin Lindsey on the team’s efforts on and off the court.
Your Friends donation is tax deductible, is included in the Campaign for the Dartmouth Experience, and will be used exclusively for the support of Dartmouth’s varsity women’s volleyball program. As a restricted gift, it cannot be credited to the Dartmouth College Fund, which is comprised of unrestricted gifts used across the College.
NOTE: : In addition to the varsity program, Dartmouth now offers a club sport team in women’s volleyball. Those wishing to support the club team should direct their support to the Friends of Club Sports.
Identifying Outstanding Prospects
If you know of outstanding prospective student-athletes in your area, please send information such as newspaper clippings to Coach Erin Lindsey, or email her at Erin.Lindsey@Dartmouth.edu and let her take it from there. Reminder -- You may not contact prospects directly, nor may you contact high school coaches or guidance counselors to get information on prospects, but there is no rule against attending their contests.
Providing Summer Jobs & Internships
If you know of positions in your business or community that might be filled by a current student-athlete, please email Coach Erin Lindsey at Erin.Lindsey@Dartmouth.edu. Reminder -- The pay for these jobs must be at the going rate for that position, to comply with NCAA regulations.
Dartmouth Athletic Sponsor Program
More than 1200 Dartmouth alumni, parents, and other supporters are currently members of the Athletic Sponsor Program, which provides vital recruiting resources for all of the Athletic Department's varsity sports. The Sponsor Program is the sole source of funds for bringing more than 200 top athletic prospects to the campus each year for a first-hand view of the Dartmouth Experience. Additional Sponsor funds are allocated for coaches' recruiting trips, cell phones, and recruiting vehicles. In the event gifts exceed expenses, a portion of the unexpended gifts may also be transferred into a fund for long-term support of our coaches' recruiting efforts. (Click here for a complete description of the fund including provisions for alternate uses.)
Honorable Mention: $100-$299- Assigned a specific recruit every 3-4 years
