Save the La Salle 7
Without warning, LaSalle University recently notified over 130 student-athletes that they would no longer be offering their sport as part of the Division 1 program. This news devastated the student-athletes, their families, the alumni and their coaches. The explanation for the decision was to be able to offer a “Division 1 Experience” to those athletic programs remaining. By making this decision, they failed to understand the true meaning of sports and why these athletes participate. It is not about “material” things but for the LOVE of the sport to which they participate.
On behalf of all those who have been impacted, we ask you to join us in signing this petition. We need to have our voices heard and let the Board of Trustees, the President of La Salle and the Athletic Director know that we will not quit until these teams have been reinstated.
By signing your name below, you pledge the following:
We the student-athletes, their family/friends and the alumni of La Salle pledge that we WILL NOT donate any monies to LaSalle now or in the future unless these teams are reinstated.
