UTSA Student-Athlete Society presents... // 2017 Former Student-Athlete Challenge

The Student-Athlete Society is launching the second annual Former Student-Athlete Challenge, which runs from May 26, 2017 to August 31, 2017. The Former Student-Athlete Challenge is a competition between all 17 UTSA varsity programs and the spirit squad program. Last year, 145 former student-athletes participated with over 90 of them, making their first donation UTSA Athletics. Every gift matters and makes a difference in the lives of current student-athletes.

There will be two winner's this year: the program with the highest percentage rate will win $4,000. The program with the highest amount of donors will win $2,000.

The purpose of this challenge is to encourage UTSA former student-athletes to make a donation and play a continuous role in the UTSA Athletics programs.

  • Donate to your sport program
  • Donate to student-athlete scholarships
  • Purchase donor level season tickets for UTSA Football

To make a donation online, click here or by phone, contact the Roadrunner Athletic Fund at 210-458-4483.

About the Challenge

  1. How can I help my team win?
    Any former student-athlete who makes a gift towards UTSA Athletics, in any dollar amount, by August 31, 2017 will be counted in the challenge. The team with the highest percentage rate wins $4,000 and the team with the highest amount of donors wins $2,000.
  2. How do I designate my gift online towards the sport that I participated with?
    To contribute to the program that you participated with, click on the drop box next to the designation and select other, and then on the space below the drop box type in the program that you want to support. Once a Roadrunner, always a Roadrunner - support your team today!
  3. What if I buy football season tickets?
    Donations to the RAF can be made through any UTSA football season tickets that have a donation tied into them.
  4. Do gifts made prior to the launch of the competition count towards the challenge?
    Yes, all gifts made towards UTSA Athletics dating back to September 1, 2016 will be included.
  5. If a former student-athlete gives to another program other than the one he/she participated in, who gets the credit? For example: if a men's basketball player wants to give towards the women's basketball program who gets credit for that gift?
    The program in which the former student-athlete participated in will receive credit. In the above scenario, men's basketball would receive credit. For a former student-athlete who participated on multiple teams (i.e., track & field and basketball), all sports in which the former student-athlete participated would receive credit.
  6. If two former student-athletes are married, what sports program will be credited with participating?
    Both programs will receive credit.
  7. What qualifies as a former student-athlete at UTSA?
    Anyone that has competed for one full academic year in any of the UTSA varsity sports that is or was sponsored by UTSA Athletics, which also includes spirit squads, team manager, athletic trainers and former coaches.
