Athletics | Owl Club
Additionally, the Owl Club helps create social opportunities to support our programs such as sponsoring team reunions for alumni, receptions for parents and friends when our teams advance to championship play, as well as the Athletics Hall of Fame Dinner and Ceremony, Student-Athlete Awards dinner and Homecoming events.
Owl Club support from alumni, parents and friends helps us maintain the highest quality student-athlete experience at Westfield. Contributions to the Owl Club provide much needed funding in the annual operating budget, and your support each year moves us closer to building a permanent endowment that will sustain athletics at Westfield in the years ahead.
Your Support Makes a Difference in the Lives of Owls Student-Athletes
Our athletic program thrives due to the caliber of student athletes that our coaches have been able to recruit. Funds raised through the Owl Club and other non-budget sources account for more than 1/3 of our annual athletics budget, and help to:
- Sponsor the uniform rotation
- Fund special trips to athletic competition
- Recruit the best student-athletes we can find in Massachusetts, New England and beyond
- Improve technology and equipment in a fast-paced environment
- Keep our training room well supplied to endure the safety of our student-athletes
The Mission of the Owl Club
The mission of the Owl Club is to improve the student-athlete experience at Westfield by providing financial assistance for athletic programs. The Owl Club also provides student-athletes, alumni, parents, and friends with opportunities that build team spirit and the visibility and reputation of Westfield and its athletic programs.
Central to our efforts is the underlying philosophy that athletics are an integral part of the Westfield experience. Owl teams make a difference in the lives of everyone – including participants on the field, court, track, and in the pool – and contribute to the quality of our entire college community.
The Owl Club Promise
Whether a student-athlete is an All-American, a record-setter, or is simply fulfilling a dream by laying on an intercollegiate team, friendships that are forged through Owl Athletics, along with lessons of hard work, teamwork, and leadership, are invaluable benefits that last a lifetime.
In keeping with NCAA Division III rules and philosophy, we want to give our student-athletes every opportunity to succeed. Academic success is vital to the student-athlete experience at Westfield, and our commitment to students both on and off the field helps them open doors of opportunity after graduation.
