About

Champions Challenge is the ultimate fan zone of Pioneer Athletics! Coaches, students, and fans of every kind gather here to compete for a portion of $15,000 from the Pioneer Athletic Association and create a first-class experience for our student-athletes. 

Meeting this $100,000 challenge will require the entire extended Pioneer Family - alumni, family, and friends. Every program has its own priority for the funds (see each project listed above). Team priorities include -- increasing opportunities to travel, improving facilities, and adding performance gear and technology.

Join us in supporting Pioneer Athletics with a gift to your favorite team by October 23rd. As always, thank you for your support, and Go Pioneers!

Welcome to the Third Annual Champions Challenge!

Champions Challenge officially begins today and we’re already off to a great start! All twelve teams have launched their projects, and many have already surpassed their halfway point! This success has inspired three new challenge gifts to boost the competition.

    • The Alumni Challenge will award $500 to the team that earns support from the greatest number of alumni. In case of a tie, funds will be split between teams.
    • The Competitor Challenge will award $500 to the team that has the highest percentage of student-athletes and coaches who secure a gift for their program. In case of a tie, the average number of gifts per student will be taken into consideration.
    • The Advocate Challenge will award $500 on behalf of the Pioneer (student, staff, parent, friend, or alumni) who inspires the most gifts. The winner will choose the team worthy of their support.

  

Thanks in advance for your support. Go Pioneers!
