Volleyball Excellence Fund
The Volleyball Excellence Fund serves as an avenue for individuals to directly invest in the needs of the Jackrabbit Volleyball program above and beyond our traditional operating expenditures. Your support in the Jackrabbit Club and now the Volleyball Excellence Fund is essential to our growth and will help us in achieving a championship level program in The Summit League. All funds raised through the SDSU Jackrabbit Volleyball Excellence Fund will go directly to projects and needs identified by our coaching staff.
The Volleyball Excellence Fund will position Jackrabbit Volleyball for greater success by providing additional resources to enhance the overall Jackrabbit student-athlete experience. With the combined dedication of our student-athletes, coaching staff, past letterwinners, and donors, there is no doubt in my mind that we will be able to compete at a championship level. You will find a detailed listing of our excellence fund goals below. I hope that I can count on you to continue to elevate our program.

Volleyball Excellence Fund Initiatives
Enhanced Travel Budget
Playing a non-restrictive, preseason tournament schedule is a critical factor in building our program. By allowing our student-athletes to compete against the best programs in the country, our volleyball team will gain the experience needed to get us back to the top of The Summit League. Your gift to this initiative will help us to build a schedule that allows your Jackrabbits to compete against a variety of quality competition across the country and ultimately prepare us for our yearly pursuit to be in the NCAA Tournament.
Enhanced Recruiting Budget
In order for us to find the best student-athletes possible and grow the South Dakota State University name, we need to be able to recruit outside our region, on a national level. Enhancing our recruiting budget will help us reach those regions and student-athletes.
Sports Performance Consultant
Our student-athletes have to meet many demands. To help combat the inevitable stress, our athletes visit with our sports performance consultant on a regular basis.
