For Fairfield to remain competitive in recruiting the best student-athletes and to maintain a quality experience for our Division I teams, the Fairfield University Athletics department relies on the support of our Friends of Fairfield Athletics groups.
Volunteers can make an impact financially or volunteer their time to help our student-athletes achieve success on the playing field and in the classroom. To inquire about available Friends Group roles or to find out how you can become a Friends Group President, please email Rachel Kavanagh at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You are a “Representative of Athletic Interest” or “Booster” if:
Definitions to Note
Can boosters contact prospects to encourage them to attend Fairfield?
No. Any such contact could result in the prospect being declared ineligible to participate in Fairfield athletics. Recruiting contact must be made by countable coaches.
May a booster attend a public event (e.g., high school awards banquet) at which prospects are present?
Yes, as long as they do not make contact with the prospect or his/her families nor attempt to recruit the prospect.
What extra benefits are prohibited for current student-athletes, prospects, their relatives and friends?
Prohibited benefits include (and are not limited to) the following:
Is it permissible for a booster to reimburse the coach of a prospect for transportation expenses incurred while taking the prospect to visit a campus?
No. This would be an improper benefit and may not be provided.
Is it permissible for a booster to provide transportation to or from campus or free admission to an Athletics event on or off Fairfield’s campus to prospects, their friends or relatives?
No. This is an improper benefit and would jeopardize the prospect’s eligibility.
