Fellow Bishops Fan,

The 2016-2017 athletics season is just around the corner, and our Battling Bishops staff is hard at work preparing for another successful campaign… and we need your help!  The support of our alumni, fans and community is essential to the success of our programs, and we are inviting you to aid in this effort by joining and/or renewing your membership in the Battling Bishops Club today!

Last season, our athletic teams captured a trio of USA South Championships and made one NCAA appearance. Individually, we had three student-athletes garner All-American honors, while 43 earned All-Conference accolades -- four of whom went on to earn USA South Player and/or Rookie of the Year awards. Most impressively, our student-athletes set a new program-record in the classroom with 114 Battling Bishops being named to the USA South Academic All-Conference team! The Department of Athletics hopes to build on these successes during the upcoming season, but we understand that a successful athletics program depends on the dedication of our staff, the passion of our student-athletes and the support of our alumni, fans and community.

As we look to the future of Wesleyan athletics, our BBC members play a vital role in helping our programs fulfill their most immediate and pressing needs by providing direct financial support. Your tax deductible donation can be designated to the team/program of your choice or to the department as a whole.  Either way, you will become an integral part of our athletic success here at the College.

As an individual member of the Battling Bishops Club, you will receive a membership card that gives you free admission to all Wesleyan athletic events (excluding post-season tournaments). Other perks include BBC promotional items and e-mail updates, while our corporate members receive opportunities for signage and advertisement.

It is our desire to make the N.C. Wesleyan Department of Athletics the very best it can be for our student-athletes now and in the future, so please consider joining the BBC today! For more information, please contact us at 252-985-5213 .

With sincere thanks,
