Thank you for your interest and support of the Women’s Volleyball program at Dordt University. As we encourage Godly women to grow in all areas of their lives through The Defender Way, we are simply asking for your help in making it happen.
How can you help? Please offer prayers on behalf of our volleyball student-athletes and staff. Second, consider supporting Women’s Volleyball by contributing to the Defender Gold Club and directly impacting the student-athlete experience through our team retreat and facility and equipment enhancements.
This year, the women's volleyball team is requesting support for the following items:
- Volleyball Team Retreat
In our preseason, when our schedule and funding allow, we take a team retreat to a local cabin where we build our team goals using The Defender Way. The lifelong memories created through team bonding activities have repeatedly been a highlight for any who have attended.
- Attack Machine
An Attack Machine (similar to a baseball pitching machine) prepares our players in important first-touch volleyball skills. The new attack machine has three spinning wheels to give many varieties of spin and controlled speed. This will help develop and prepare our team to play in one of the toughest leagues in the country.
- Facility Enhancements
Our locker room contains furniture that needs to be upgraded along with artwork to reflect the current team. Many hours of team bonding happen in the locker room and our current athletes will benefit from any improvements in this space.
