Why do we need a Block CA Society?
A successful athletic department needs to have a multi-dimensional support network. This network must include dedicated athletes, dynamic coaches, inspiring administrators, enthusiastic support staff, devoted alumni, die-hard fans and a loyal community. This club will be a direct pathway to connect current student-athletes with the alumni to create a strong sense of what it means to be a part of the "Aggie Family" and to show "Aggie Pride."
What are the benefits of joining the Block CA Society?
Participants in the Block CA Society will receive a Block CA pin and an ID card that will provide future benefits as the organization grows. There will be an annual student-athlete reunion at the Homecoming football game, and at a designated basketball game in the winter. All Block CA Society members will be invited to the Fall Welcome Reception for incoming freshmen student-athletes and the Senior Recognition Banquet for graduating seniors. The network of former student-athletes will connect teammates together and provide career opportunities for graduating student-athletes.
How will our current student-athletes benefit?
Current student-athletes will gain a greater appreciation for the history and traditions of UC Davis Athletics. The alumni network will provide contacts and resources for our graduating student-athletes. The annual Block CA gift will directly fund student-athlete support services.
