2006 field hockey captains Megan Payne and Kelly Davies participate in CUA's Kids on Campus day.
An important facet of the student-athlete experience at Catholic University is serving others. Each semester, the varsity team members give back to the community through a variety of service projects in the Washington, D.C., area and beyond.
Student-athletes and coaches have served in the following ways:
On Saturday January 24th, the Catholic University Baseball team continued their annual tradition of cleaning up the streets of Brookland before the season begins. This year's picture was taken in front of the Brookland sign at the beginning of the cleanup. The cleanup circulated 12th street and concluded at the Brookland Firehouse where trash bags were placed in a dumpster.
On December 11th, 2009, the CUA field hockey team spread some Christmas cheer at the Armed Forces Retirement Home. During the visit, the girls sprused up the building with decorations, and spent time with each of the residents. "They liked the girls so much, the coordinator is looking for them to come back!" noted head coach Gia Cillizza.
