We are the University of San Diego Women’s Soccer program. Since our program’s inception in 1992, the women who have donned Torero blue over the past 26 years have garnered 13 NCAA Tournament appearances, produced 6 All-Americans and 152 All-WCC performers, and have won a prestigious WCC Championship. We are extremely proud of our history and are in awe of all of the successes that the women before us have accomplished.
The current squad is working hard on the field and in the weight room every day, striving to regain prominence in the WCC and on the national scale. We understand that in order to do great things, the drive and desire must begin from within. This drive will not only be reflected in the wins we have on the field, but by the successes we have in the classroom and the impact we have on the community.
A high level Division I program requires resources, and in order to enhance our student athlete experience, it will require a unified approach from our team, the coaching staff, the administration and the community. To be able to do this we are seeking to raise funds for the aspects of our program that we believe will keep us competing at the highest level.
Leadership Development- This summer, our team will come in prior to pre-season to partake in a leadership development program. By participating in this programming, our team will have the opportunity to work on key interpersonal and awareness skills, while also developing the discipline necessary to exercise leadership consistently and effectively. We recognize that the development of leadership skills is vital in becoming a reliable teammate, student, and member of the USD community.
Travel- In order to be the best you have to compete against the best. Although our fellow California schools provide great competition within the state, it is crucial for us to be able to travel outside of the West Coast to play against the top programs in the nation. This will help strengthen our team’s schedule, giving us the best opportunity to return to the NCAA tournament and re-claim a WCC conference title.
Equipment- A crucial aspect in recruiting and student athlete retention is providing the best equipment for our student athletes. Adequate and resourceful backpacks as well as high-class running shoes will keep us geared up for the year.
This is WHY we need YOUR help! We are asking YOU to help continue to strengthen our program and help our student-athletes succeed on and off the field! Your donations are tax deductible and will go directly to the Women’s Soccer Program. If you have not made a gift to USD Women’s Soccer since July 1st, 2017, please consider giving to this campaign today. If you have already given this year, help us move the needle a little further. Encourage at least one other person (e.g. fellow alumnus, family member, neighbor, friend, etc.) to join in and keep it going. Every donation received, no matter the size, gets us one step closer to the goal.
