A HUGE thank you for all of the support!

April 30, 2018

Hi all,  

    The team would just like to say a huge thank you for the tremendous support we have received this season. We are all so lucky and grateful that we have this kind of support. We knew that without the financial aspect of forming this team, it would be hard to put all the pieces together. Not to mention, everyone else who encouraged us as a team, and those of you who patiently walked us through all of the logistical steps to get the ball rolling, so we had a place to start. We truly could not have done it without you, and you all mean so much to us!

  Each week we have been continuing to improve greatly. Last weekend, ten girls on the team, and our coach, Mike Mikita, road tripped to Grand Junction to play Colorado Mesa University. It was competitive, a beautiful day to play, the coaches and players from CMU were incredibly kind, and most of all, we had a blast. We couldn’t be happier with the results! The team always shows a good balance of competitiveness, fun, and hard work that was awesome to see in action. We want to emphasize how crucial of a piece you all are in helping us reach what we once thought was a far-fetched goal, to compete as Colorado College’s first Beach Volleyball team.

Thank you!




Colorado College Women’s Beach Volleyball

Tournament against CSU Mesa Saturday, April 28th!

April 23, 2018

    Hello! If you have already been on this website before, welcome back! If not, welcome to the Colorado College Women’s Sand Volleyball crowdfunding page! This week, we have a couple of updates.  Tryouts in March gave us a final roster! 

    The team has been practicing Sunday’s and Wednesday’s in both indoor, and when weather permits, outdoor on a court on campus.

    With all of your help with donations, in addition to practice courts, we were able to get team jerseys!  We would like to especially thank Cindy Mullen for designing and coordinating  all of the Jerseys. We are so grateful for her help!

    Coming up this weekend on April 28th, the team will travel to Grand Junction to compete against Colorado Mesa University. We are all extremely excited and could not have done this without all of your help!


Go Tigers!

Tryouts this Weekend!

March 09, 2018

     First and foremost, we would like to thank all of those who have donated so far. You all have been incredibly generous, and it is thanks to you that we have enough funding for an entire season's worth of practices, with $140 left over for uniforms! This is great news, and makes what lies ahead even more exciting. Practices have been very casual and only player-run the past two weeks, but that will change this coming Sunday, March 11th, at 1 pm! The entire tryout will last between an hour and an hour and a half. It is a great way to get a feel of the team, your future teammates, the kind of level we will be playing at, and if nothing else, have a fun day playing some sand. So if you have any interest, come on out! So far we have three possible competition weekends, with location and time to be determined. In addition to all of the donations, we want to thank Marguerite Spaethling and Caitlin Laurence for reaching out to numerous schools with beach volleyball programs in search of competition, scheduling practices and tryouts, and keeping everything moving forward! We will keep the CrowdFund website up to date with new information about tryouts, practices, roster, etc. Stay tuned!

Give $30 to cover a day worth of meals for one student athlete during a tournament!


Uniform top

With this level of donations, you could pay for 2 Tigers' meals for the day, or pay for one uniform top

This rents two beach volleyball courts for two hours each, which adds to one full practice!



This could pay for one student athlete's new uniform


Hotel night

Pay for one night in a hotel for four athletes!


Not one, but TWO practices

This pays for 2 full practices


Bus ride

This could pay for a small trip to nearby tournaments

A Season's Practices

Everything but Travel!

This would pay for all of the season's expenses, minus travel fees



This would give us a realistic first season, traveling to mostly nearby schools, and one farther trip to play as many teams as we can. This is this year's goal!
