Mountaineer Athletic Club: West Virginia University's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics
One of the most crucial needs for WVU Intercollegiate Athletics is support for the renovation and construction of first-class athletic facilities. For recruiting purposes it is essential that our facilities exceed the expectations of prospective student-athletes and compare favorably to other schools in the BIG 12 and the nation. As always, maintaining facilities and strategically planning for the future is an ongoing process. Current major gift opportunities are available in facility campaigns, program enhancements, recruiting funds, scholarship endowments and mentorship programs. Supporting these initiatives will provide the resources necessary to ensure that all of WVU's programs will remain competitive in the BIG 12 Conference and on a national level. All major gifts and pledges to WVU Intercollegiate Athletics — above and beyond those for football and basketball ticket priorities — that match or exceed $50,000 qualify for recognition in the All-American Society.

The new football training room will allow us to improve the quality of care provided to those student-athletes needing rehabilitation from injuries as well as assist us in treating and preventing future injuries.

The renovation will expand our existing training room from 4,450 square feet to over 8,600 square feet. The updated facility will include a new hydrotherapy room, expanded treatment area, rehab area, taping station, renovated Swim-Ex therapy pool and expanded office space for trainers and doctors. The remodeled facility will be a cornerstone for recruiting top tier student-athletes by showing our commitment and concern for their well-being. 
 
The completion of the new stadium and competition with traditional baseball powers in the Big 12 have reignited a passion for baseball amongst Mountaineer Nation. In addition to the completed sections of the operations building, additional space exists to build a strength and conditioning center and office space for the WVU Baseball coaching staff. Funds contributed to the Baseball Complex Enhancement fund will assist in completing this project and finish the baseball operations complex.

This new facility will bring the WVU rifle program to an even higher level, creating home matches which mimic an NCAA Championship environment. This will be a huge benefit to the student-athletes, as they will be able to prepare for the postseason on a regular basis.

On a fan level, being able to attend and watch an NCAA Championships will be a wonderful experience, a chance to cheer on the Mountaineers first-hand as they strive to capture another National Championship, this time on home turf.

WVU Women’s Soccer is coming off of the most successful season in program history which saw the team win 23 matches, record its 3rd Big 12 tournament title and finish as the NCAA national runner up. This coming season, the team is working to make it back to the big game, but also bring a championship back to Morgantown. The Brightline Project is very important step in that process. It will create an interactive and virtual experience for fans like never before. Features that include virtual autographs, fan photos, gameday experience, and the all-new “Pride Meter”. The virtual experience will also include player statistics such as number of minutes played, heart rate, distance covered, photos, videos, and the player’s social media accounts as well. This interactive tool will help our fans have a better gameday experience, help our players interact with fans, and help our team in recruiting.
 
Our goal is to the give the fans, our student-athletes, and our recruits the best and most interactive experience as possible. Help us bring Brightline Interactive to Women’s Soccer at WVU by making a donation today!
