Track & Field

About Our Campaign

Through the support of the Diggin'Dukes campaign, the JMU Track & Field team hopes to enhance our training regimen and competitive edge with the addition of key advanced training and competition equipment.  

How Your Support Will IMPACT the JMU Track & Field Student-Athlete Experience

Your gift, of any amount, will help our team attain and maintain advanced equipment — including Run Rockets training devices, Blood Flow Training Systems (restrictors), 1080 Sprint Training Devices, and additional student-athlete training kits — to benefit our student-athlete experience for the 2023-2024 season and beyond.

  • 1 gift of $500 supports an additional player training kit for one student-athlete
  • 1 gift of $375 supports the purchase of a Gortex Rain Suit for one student-athlete
  • 1 gift of $300 supports the purchase of one Blood Flow Training System
  • 10 gifts of $250 support the purchase of one Run Rocket Training Device

Run Rockets aid with our speed and power, and will allow to us train with resistance making training challenge, safe, and preparing us for competitive speed and power events. (4 are needed, cost $2,300 each)

Blood Flow Training Systems (Restrictors) will allow us to train our muscles in hypertrophy, allowing us to work at a low intensity with less weight. (15 are needed, cost $300 each)

The 1080 Sprint Training Device will allow us to enhance our speed training and provide consistent and safe overspeed and resistance training. 

About Funds Raised During Diggin'Dukes

One hundred percent (100%) of funds raised in support of JMU Track & Field during the Diggin’Dukes campaign immediately go to the JMU Track & Field Sport Program Fund (restricted-use fund) and benefit the JMU Track & Field student-athlete experience.

Sport program funds are restricted-use funds that can only be utilized by the individual sport program. 100% of gifts made to sport program funds go to the selected sport program and are 100% tax deductible. 

If our goal is achieved, funds that exceed our goal will go to support our team operational needs during the 2023-2024 season. 

If we do not achieve our goal, funds raised during the Diggin’Dukes campaign will go to support team operational needs during the 2023-2024 season. 

Funds are allocated at the discretion of our coaches and administration.
