Team Tries To Save LSU Shreveport Soccer

A group of students at LSU-Shreveport are losing their scholarships at the end of the semester because the school is ending the men’s and women’s soccer program.  Now, students at the university want to save it.

Not every soccer player will be losing their scholarship.

“They are going on a case-by-case basis,” said Nathan Gurinsky, a student-athlete at LSU-Shreveport. “I’m not sure what qualifies an athlete to keep their scholarship.”

They need to raise $70,000 to pay for the expenses of running the team without a coach’s salary or other costs.  However, if they can’t get enough to run the team, they would want to help teammates stay at the school if they wish.  So how are they doing it?

First, a set of events:

  • April 8th: Fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings on Youree Drive.  All day.  Team receives 20% of sales.
  • April 10th: Fundraiser at Newks on Youree Drive.  5-8 p.m.  Team receives 10% of sales.
  • April 14th: Houston Dynamo soccer game. Costs $22.  Team receives $4 of each ticket.  Must buy through the team’s contact person.
  • April 18th: Raising Canes on Youree Drive.  4-9 p.m.  Team receives about $1 of each sale.

The team will also be offering sponsorships to t-shirts that they will be selling as an additional fundraiser.  Additional details can be found on the team’s fundraising website.
