UBC Thunderbirds Baseball: A Decade of Dominance 2020-2029

UBC Thunderbirds Baseball: A Decade of Dominance 2020-2029

The UBC Baseball program, which was started again in 1997, is entering its 23rd season. We are very proud of what has been accomplished in a short period of time. Much of this is owed to the dedication and sacrifice from our former players, coaches, present donors and long-term supporters.

As a new decade begins, we are launching a more formal giving program for our alumni and supporters. The goal is to engage our former players while investing in five areas to continue the momentum we are gaining in taking the UBC Baseball program to the next level.

About This Project

All funds raised by our alumni and supporters will be invested into our Decade of Dominance Fund. The goal is to produce well rounded players who take advantage of their time at UBC in receiving a world class education combined with an elite collegiate baseball experience.

Our goal is to work towards funding all five priority areas fully over the next ten years. Join us once again and continue your UBC Baseball legacy.

Varsity Team Academic Coaches
Varsity Team Academic Coaches (VTAC) are team personnel who will work with our players during the year to ensure academic success. This investment will provide unlimited tutoring for our scholar-athletes, as well as allowing two VTAC coaches to travel with the team on road trips. Total: $20,000 per year

Scholarship and Award Support
During the 2018/19 season, UBC Baseball gave out $180,000 in baseball scholarship money. Under NAIA rules, we are allowed to give out $248,000. Our goal is to provide the maximum amount of scholarship support possible to ensure we keep Canada’s best scholar-athletes at home. Total: $68,000 per year

Strength and Conditioning Support
We are currently provided full access to the varsity weight room as well as all workouts led by a UBC Thunderbirds fulltime strength coach. With a team roster of 35 players, more resources and attention are needed for our players to reach their athletic potential. Total: $10,000 per year

Coaching Support
Our current budget provides a full-time head coach and assistant coach position. All NCAA baseball programs have three full-time paid coaches. To compete with the best programs in North America, we are looking to fund one more full-time assistant coach and one graduate assistant coach position. Total: $70,000 per year

International Travel Support
With a trip to Tokyo, Japan in 2018 and then hosting the first ever UBC Collegiate Baseball Classic this past August, we are giving our players experiences in baseball, culture and education that they will never forget. We want to continue these international opportunities in the future. Total: $50,000 per year
