Dominican University of California Men's and Women's Cross Country and Track & Field

Dominican University of California is pleased to announce the addition of a Men's and Women's Track & Field program set to begin competition in Spring 2022 with many in the group set to compete in Cross Country for the Penguins in the fall of 2021!

With the addition of the Track & Field program and the strong core of our established Cross Country team, we are excited to conduct this year's fundraising campaign to help both programs together. This year, we have a fundraising goal of $2,500 to help elevate our teams to new levels of excellence. 

Your support will help provide funding for travel expenses, team meals, program equipment, uniforms, facility upgrades, and scholarships--all things that are vital for our team’s progress. Here are some examples of items that your support will help provide for our program:

  • Uniforms - team sweats and hoodies
  • Starting blocks - $100 each 
  • Shot Put - $65-$75 each  
  • Discus - $50 for practice discus; $200 for competition discus 
  • Javelins - $150-$200 each 
  • Hurdles - $255 each (need 10) 
  • Competition shoes - running spikes, throwing shoes, jump shoes  $60-$150

Our current and future success is accomplished through not only the hard work and dedication of our student-athletes, but also through generous support from alumni, parents, friends, and fans. If you would like to contribute to our success, please consider donating by using the "Give Now!" button on this page. Thank you in advance for your support, big or small!
