|Men's and Women's Tennis Support from Alumni, Parents and Friends|
Men's and Women's Tennis
Alumni, parents, and other supporters provide vital support to Dartmouth Tennis through a variety of means as described below. Please note that all such involvement must comply with NCAA and Ivy League regulations. For further information or clarification on NCAA or Ivy League rules, call the Dartmouth Athletics compliance office at (603) 646-1378 or email Dartmouth.Athletics@Dartmouth.edu.
Friends of Dartmouth Tennis
The Friends of Dartmouth Tennis plays a significant role in the success of our men’s and women’s tennis teams, helping to cover the cost of team equipment, out-of-region travel, assistant coach salaries, video equipment, and other vital needs that cannot be covered by the College’s budget but are essential to operating first-class varsity programs. Friends of Tennis receive regular e-mail updates and an annual newsletter from men’s coach Chris Drake and women’s coach Bob Dallis.
Contributions of any amount are gratefully appreciated, but please note the following special giving categories:
Your Friends donation is tax deductible, is included in the Campaign for the Dartmouth Experience, and will be credited to a joint Friends of Tennis fund exclusively for the support of Dartmouth’s men’s and women’s varsity tennis programs. As a restricted gift, it cannot be credited to the Dartmouth College Fund, which is comprised of unrestricted gifts used across the College.
NOTE: In addition to the varsity programs, Dartmouth now offers club sport teams in men’s and women’s tennis. Those wishing to support the club teams should direct their support to the Friends of Club Sports.
Identifying Outstanding Prospects
If you know of outstanding prospective student-athletes in your area, please send information such as newspaper clippings to men’s coach Chris Drake or women’s coach Bob Dallis, or email them at Chris.Drake@Dartmouth.edu or Bob.Dallis@Dartmouth.edu and let the coaches take it from there. Reminder -- You may not contact prospects directly, nor may you contact high school coaches or guidance counselors to get information on prospects, but there is no rule against attending their contests.
Providing Summer Jobs & Internships
If you know of positions in your business or community that might be filled by a current student-athlete, please email men’s coach Chris Drake or women’s coach Bob Dallis at Chris.Drake@Dartmouth.edu or Bob.Dallis@Dartmouth.edu. Reminder -- The pay for these jobs must be at the going rate for that position, to comply with NCAA regulations.
More than 1000 Dartmouth alumni, parents, and other supporters are currently members of the Athletic Sponsor Program, which provides vital recruiting resources for all of Dartmouth's varsity sports. The Sponsor Program is the sole source of funds for bringing more than 200 top athletic prospects to the campus each year for a first-hand view of the Dartmouth Experience. Additional Sponsor funds are allocated for coaches' recruiting trips, cell phones, and recruiting vehicles. In the event gifts exceed expenses, a portion of the unexpended gifts may also be transferred into a fund for long-term support of our coaches' recruiting efforts. (Click here for a complete description of the fund including provisions for alternate uses.)
Athletic Director's Discretionary Fund
Dedicated supporters of Dartmouth Athletics are often interested in providing financial support that may be utilized at the discretion of the Director of Athletics and Recreation for the Athletic Department's broad-based program of NCAA Division I varsity athletics, club sports, intramurals, physical education, fitness classes, and other recreational offerings. Your donation to this fund is tax deductible and is included in the Campaign for the Dartmouth Experience. As a restricted gift, it cannot be credited to the Dartmouth College Fund, which is comprised of unrestricted gifts used across the College. For more information, contact Dartmouth.Athletics@dartmouth.edu or call (603) 646-2463.
