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 first year into NCAA Division II. Our Lancers had an outstanding year in 2012-13 athletics season winning four PacWest Conference Championships and three NCCAA Tournament Championships. Our success in athletics was matched by our tremendous fans and supporters as the LAA was able to increase revenue by 43 percent. 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 1,200 members to 1,500 to 2012-13. This is a special invitation to partner with the LAA as we support the needs of CBU’s 20 varsity programs on their ambitious transition to NCAA Division II. We hope you will discover the vital need for your on-going involvement as you learn more of our vision and plans. Your participation will truly make a difference in the lives of our student-athletes and in the future of our athletics program.
