Hello, Everyone-
My name is Abrahán Martínez, and I’m the Career Pathways Coordinator (Career Coach) at Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC), located in The Dalles and Hood River, OR. Aside from my main duties as a career coach, I am now in the process of starting a soccer program at the college. Currently, I have men’s and women’s teams competing in the local leagues. I have been able to fund these two teams through some college resources. Future plans are to have two official teams competing in the North West Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAAC). We currently do not have any athletic programs at CGCC. Having a soccer program would bring many good things to the college and the community.

Major positive outcomes from having a well-established soccer program would include:

Increase retention and completion – engagement is essential in keeping students in school and completing. CGCC would no longer be just a place where to get your education, but also a place where you and others can get together and root for a hometown team, thus creating support groups.

Increase enrollment – In the local men’s and women’s leagues, there are more than 300 players who are between the ages of 14-19. Having these players know that their local community college has a soccer program can lead them to do their best in school and in the sport they love. They are future CGCC students and soccer players.

School spirit and unity within the community – sports provide that feeling of belonging and of school pride. We want to give our students one more reason to feel proud of being NOOKS (short for Chinook salmon, our mascot).

Giving what our students want – Our students have explicitly stated, through focus groups, and our Academic Master Plan, that they want athletic opportunities at the college.

To start a program at CGCC, it would cost about $55,000 a year, broken down into the following expenses: $5,000 NWAAC league registration fee, $2,000 for uniforms (includes both teams), $25,000 for a par-time coach, $10,000 in sport scholarships, $10,000 in transportation cost (bus rentals and lodging), and $3,000 in other costs (e.g. training gear, award ceremonies, refreshments, advertisement, etc.)

The college is unable to cover these costs at the moment, that’s why it has not in full swing of creating an athletic program, even with student pressure. That is why I trust you to help this soccer program grow. Again, this can change so many people’s lives, students, their families, and our community. Please, donate to this cause. God bless!

Thank you!
