The Michigan State Pompon team needs your help to defend our title at the 2017 Mid-American High Kick Collegiate Championship. For the 2017-2018 season, we have a team of 26 girls. The costs associated with this event are high but with your generosity and support, we can aspire to compete again this season!
Michigan State University Pompon functions solely on fundraising efforts, sponsorships, and donations. Because we are affiliated as a club sport at Michigan State, we do not receive funding from the university. All expenses that occur throughout the season are covered through the fundraising efforts of the team. The money we raise through this CrowdPower campaign will be utilized to send our team to the 2017 Mid-American High Kick Collegiate Championship occurring in November.
The Mid-American High Kick Collegiate Championship is a competition in which collegiate teams compete against one another in a themed “high kick” performance. The premise of the high kick competition is to create a performance based on superior kick skill with a surrounding theme. To get a better understanding of what our past performances have looked like, please visit our YouTube page.
In the past, our team has received recognition for placing 3rd in 2014, 2nd in 2015, and earning a 1st place in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013, and 2016. We are proud of our accomplishments and how they contribute to Michigan State Pompon’s legacy of hard work and team unity.
We fund 100% of our operating expenses (receiving no money from the university) which is why your gift is monumental to our program. The money will fund competition fees, costumes, props, music cutting, facility rentals for practice space, and other miscellaneous performance expenses such as hair, make up, etc.
Your donation is the difference between whether or not we have the ability to represent Michigan State University in the sport of pompon this season.
Our overall fundraising goal is to meet or surpass $7,000 and you can help us do this!
Michigan State University Pompon was the first traditional Mid-American style pompon team formally established at the collegiate level. Since the team’s creation in 2005, numerous other collegiate programs have been formed. We are thrilled at the growth of the sport at the collegiate level and hope that other programs will continue to emerge.
MSU Pompon strives to promote value through team unity, enthusiasm, school spirit, community involvement, and philanthropic endeavors. Our program provides a supportive academic and athletic environment for students involved by teaching life skills including time management, the importance of collaboration, responsibility, and community engagement. Overall, the objective of MSU Pompon is to develop positive role models and ambassadors of Michigan State University and the sport of pompon.
