About

As our student-athletes and coaches navigate the pandemic, they continue to show tremendous tenacity. They come together as teammates to practice, get stronger, and improve the culture within their teams. They combine a fierce competitive spirit with integrity, and they are committed to keeping one another healthy as they build their abilities. 

From May 4-6, you can show your support for Bates athletics and your favorite team by being part of the FBA Giving Challenge. Your support of the student-athlete experience is the perfect match for the intensity the Bobcats bring to the competitive arena!

THANK YOU!


Thank you for making this the best-ever FBA Giving Challenge! More alumni, parents and friends showed their support than ever before! You contributed a record-breaking amount to Bates Athletics! Thank you for making a difference in the lives of student-athletes.

Congratulations to swimming and diving and men’s basketball for reaching the top of the donor and dollar leaderboards, respectively. The men’s squash program had the highest percentage of current student-athletes participating in the challenge.
