Welcome to the Yale Athletics family!
We are incredibly excited that your child is a student-athlete at Yale and look forward to watching their growth on the fields and in the classroom. We in the Athletic Department wanted to reach out to you to let you know what you can expect over the next four years and provide you with some useful information for your time in New Haven.
Here you will find both a hotel guide and a restaurant guide for your travels to New Haven. We hope you make frequent trips to campus for competitions and other events. There is a wide price range on both of our lists and a variety of tastes to appeal to everyone. A list of useful websites is also included for your use.
THE YALE SPORT ASSOCIATIONS
As a parent of a current athlete you are automatically a member of your child’s sport Association. The mission of the Yale Sport Associations is to provide alumni and friends of Yale athletics information about Yale teams as well as creating a support network for current student athletes. Through the offering of career networking and job placement, hosting of special events, and the raising of money to support Yale Athletics, Associations enhance the overall athletic experience while establishing a strong connection between Yale athletics and the community. Membership means that you will receive newsletters, mailings, and emails regarding that sport, both from my office and the coaching staff.
As the landscape of Ivy League athletics becomes increasingly competitive, the support of our membership has a direct impact on our coaches’ ability to achieve their goals. In particular, it is the Associations that help to provide the funds that pay for recruiting costs, travel, and all the equipment and training aids which are required for the overarching success of our teams. The work of our Associations’ volunteer leadership along with their partnership with the University ensures that the critical components of our programs’ annual operating budgets are met.
As mentioned above the Association hosts multiple events over the course of the year both in New Haven and other areas. You will be receiving invitations to those events in the mail or via email and we hope you will join us. They often include Association barbeques at home games, dinners at the Yale Club of New York City, golf outings and other regional events.
