Husky Centre Circle

Girls Soccer Huddle

Make a Gift Online

Husky Circle Centre is a unique opportunity for fans to become more involved with UW Women’s Soccer players and coaches. HCC membership is gained with an annual donation of at least $100 or more. HCC members receive a HCC scarf, membership card and access to the VIP tent at home games.  The tent contains complementary food, beverages and a chance to meet the players after the game.

Generating funds for our program is vital to our program’s success. With our member’s support we are able to enhance our capabilities of playing competitive matches during our spring season, use video and sports science analysis, and provide players with supplemental training and injury prevention. Most importantly donations fund the HCC Post-Graduate Scholarship. Each year we award this scholarship to an alumna who is furthering their education with graduate or doctoral study.

We want to make it as simple as possible for you to show your support. You can join online, by mail, or in the tent at any home game. All donations go directly to the Women’s Soccer Fund and are fully tax deductable.

Please know that your donation and support means the world to our student-athletes and is deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
