- SKWC MEMBERSHIP
Being Member is an opportunity for all fans to be an active member of the Rutgers wrestling family. B1G Champion membership requires a $25 donation with benefits including membership meetings and a 20% discount at Scarlet Fever. NCAA Champion memberships costs $150 with benefits including membership meetings, a complimentary ticket to the team banquet, an invitation to a team practice and a 20% discount at Scarlet Fever.
- PIN POOL
One of the most important fundraising initiatives of the SKWC is the PIN POOL. The SKWC uses PIN POOL contributions to engage senior level world caliber athletes, hire a World Team member as our Volunteer Coach, pay for travel to the Olympic Training Center, promote amateur wrestling in New Jersey, and help secure internships for our wrestlers. Supporters can pledge from $1 to $300 per Pin. At the end of the season, we multiply the team’s total pins by one’s pledge to determine the contribution (i.e. $10 x 47 = $470). Last year we had 47 pins.
- BOOM CLUB
Contributions to the BOOM CLUB will only be used to pay staff not paid by Rutgers including our Resident Athletes, our volunteer coach, the director of recruiting, and the shared salary of Reece Humphrey (the Head Coach of the New Jersey Regional Training Center).
