Bold Champions is a campaign focused on more than just bricks and mortar. It is about our pride and our promise to continue a legacy of transformation and evolution into a bold future.
Our 17 NCAA Division I sports programs boast nearly 400 talented student-athletes. In 2021, UTSA earned its membership into the American Athletic Conference and Roadrunners Football celebrated a historic season in addition to qualifying for its third bowl game in its 10-year history. This success is a result of the dedication of our outstanding student-athletes and coaching staff, and the commitment of our generous alumni and donors who believe in our bold vision.
Better facilities lead to better opportunity, and that opportunity will lead our athletes to reach new heights and even more amazing achievements.
The Practice Pavilion will help protect student-athletes from inclement weather in South Texas, which is known for its extreme heat temperatures during the summer months. To ensure the highest-quality training environment for our student-athletes, this project will make their wellness and safety a top priority.Protect our student-athletes
We will enhance this facility by adding the Park West Field House and give track & field and soccer student-athletes the competitive advantage they need to compete at the highest level. The facility will include components that will be utilized by both the UTSA community and the general public.Enhance our facilities
This practice facility will be connected to the existing Athletics Center of Excellence. Featuring two full size practice courts, our student-athletes will be bound for success. The facility will also increase UTSA’s competitive edge in recruiting and retaining the nation’s best student-athletes and coaches, who are often attracted to universities by the caliber of their training and practice facilities.Build our competitive edge
UTSA Athletics established the Roadrunner Athletics Fund, which creates greater scholarship and experiential learning opportunities. Every dollar received is used to enhance student development in academics, athletics, and life skills.Elevate the student-athlete experience
The donations to the Roadrunner Athletic Fund have helped many student-athletes accomplish dreams that began as kids. This fund and so many other parts of UTSA have continually helped equip and educate many student-athletes, further enabling them. Not many people get the opportunity to become a Division 1 athlete, but I know that the Roadrunner Athletic Fund has helped make that possible for a lot of people.
We have big goals for athletics backed up by bold investments
