About 100 current Hollins students participate in intercollegiate play - testimony to the quality and variety of Hollins' programs and facilities. Today, our eight intercollegiate sports, three club sports, and other recreational and instructional programs continue to challenge and reward our students.
Hollins' basketball, golf, lacrosse, riding, soccer, swimming, tennis, and volleyball teams are members of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC), the second-largest multisport National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III conference in the nation, while our two-time national champion riding team successfully competes with schools many times the size of Hollins as part of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA).
The Hollins athletics department and the Hollins Fund work together to secure funding to ensure continued opportunities for women through Hollins athletics. With your gift to the Friends of Athletics, you will help to provide student-athletes the opportunity to develop their potential on the field, acquiring real life skills of teamwork and leadership while obtaining a quality education that is second to none.
Your gift to Friends of Athletics is an investment in Hollins athletes and a commitment to the future of a robust athletics program at Hollins. Now more than ever, support from individuals is a vital element in improving the quality of athletics at Hollins.
Your support will provide assistance in many areas, including the following:
While we encourage unrestricted giving to best meet the needs of the athletics department, you may designate your gift to be used for a specific sport or activity.
There are a variety of ways for you to support the next generation of Hollins leaders. We invite you to explore the best option for you. Whether you are making a pledge or giving by check, credit card, or stock, you will help secure opportunities for our student-athletes. All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
