Triton Athletic Fund

The National Collegiate Scouting Association’s Collegiate Power Rankings has repeatedly placed UC San Diego first in Division II. Your support of the Triton Athletic Fund will help meet the greatest needs of the program.

Alex G. Spanos Athletic Performance Center

UC San Diego is currently fundraising to build a new Athletic Performance Center, which will feature a strength and conditioning area, outdoor performance plaza, hydrotherapy room and more for student-athletes. Currently, strength-training equipment at RIMAC is shared by the entire student body, with space at times reserved for student-athletes; the new space will benefit the entire student population with improved access to weight-training equipment. Join UC San Diego alumni, parents and friends in supporting this much needed facility, and help us enhance the student-athlete experience. Read about Dean Spanos’ gift to the project here.

Triton Ballpark

UC San Diego boasts one of the country’s top NCAA Division II baseball programs. Join us in building a new, cutting-edge Triton Ballpark that will match our student-athletes’ motivation and talents.

Triton Teams

Each year, more than 500 student-athletes strive for academic and athletic excellence as part of UC San Diego’s 23 men’s and women’s teams. From baseball to soccer and from basketball to water polo, you can champion your favorite team with a gift.

Track and Field Facilities

Triton Track and Field Stadium is among the best in the nation, thanks to generous donors who recently helped make improvements, including the Shannon and Leon Track and Field Video Scoreboard, a reality. Yet, more remains to be done to help ensure that our student-athletes are competing on the very best facilities possible. You can make a difference by making a gift to the Track and Field Facilities Fund.

Triton Softball Stadium Seat Project

Triton Softball has established itself as a force to be reckoned with, boasting a NCAA Division II championship in 2011, followed up by a runner-up finish in 2012.

Now you can join the team in making history. Help purchase permanent seating behind home plate at the Triton Softball Stadium and with your gift, you can name a seat, or two, with a commemorative plaque in honor you or those closest to you. Not only will your gift last a lifetime, but it will also push Triton Softball to a new level of achievement.
