Nipissing University invites sports fans, family, alumni and friends to support our student athletes through our Adopt-a-Laker program.
Donations help offset the cost of training programs, travel and equipment - areas that have a direct link to our student-athletes’ ability to reach their competitive potential.
When you Adopt-A-Laker, your generous support is allocated to a specific team. If you Adopt-A-Laker who plays on the Women’s Volleyball team, your support goes 100 per cent to the Women’s Volleyball team.
Support our athletes, and you’ll support their contributions to Nipissing University and our community.
- NU has over 200 student athletes
- 11 teams include Men's and Women's Basketball, Men’s and Women's Ice Hockey, Nordic Skiing, Cross Country Running, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Volleyball, and Rowing.
- Lakers spend 15 hours/week training and competing
- All student-athletes must remain in good academic standing
Nipissing student athletes are exemplary students and participate in many community-building activities. They mentor young athletes and participate in local charity activities, including Breast Cancer Awareness.
They are student ambassadors and the leaders of tomorrow.
This spirit and community participation continues long after graduation. Your donation will help to build this life-long commitment to excellence.
