Lancer Athletics Association
On behalf of California Baptist University, Lancer Athletics, our coaches and more than 400 student-athletes, thank you for your interest in the Lancer Athletics Association (LAA). Whether you are a long-time supporter or a first-time donor, I want to emphasize the importance of your decision to contribute to the LAA. Every dollar donated directly impacts Lancer student-athletes.
We are excited about the new opportunities that arise as we enter our second year in the NCAA Division II. Our Lancers had an outstanding year during the 2013-14 athletics season, winning four conference championships and the PacWest Commissioner's Cup for the second time in three years. Our success in athletics was matched by our tremendous fans and supporters, as we have raised nearly $1.6 million for CBU athletics since we started LAA in 2009. We are looking to the future as we continue to build upon the foundation of success established over the past five years.
The Team Behind The Team campaign requests the support of alumni, family and friends as we strive to increase the number of LAA members from last year’s total of 990 members to 1,500 to 2014-15. This is a special invitation to partner with the LAA as we support the needs of CBU’s 20 varsity programs. Your participation will truly make a difference in the lives of our student-athletes and in the future of our athletics program.
ABOUT THE LAA
The Lancer Athletics Association (LAA), comprised of alumni, family and friends of California Baptist University Athletics, was established in 2009 to create financial support for 20 varsity programs and more than 400 student-athletes.
The NCAA Division II chapter of Lancer Athletic history is just beginning and your support is more critical than ever as we recruit, educate and train some of the best and brightest student-athletes in the region. Whether your support is used for athletic equipment, facility renovations or scholarship assistance, the greatest benefit of being an LAA member is knowing 100 percent of your gift is dedicated to our student-athletes’ academic, athletic and spiritual success.
On behalf of our coaches and student-athletes, thank you for considering a gift to the LAA and becoming part of the Lancer family. We appreciate your commitment to excellence.
