Hello Alumni, Supporters & Fans!

The Valkyries are back in action this weekend against Chicago North Shore. NS is the current Champion of our league and so this is a HUGE match for us. After this our team has back to back travel weekends to face Detroit and then the Minnesota Valkyries. These next three matches are critical for us as we are currently in third place in the league. We need to perform at our best to gain a few more points to ensure that we travel to Elite 8 in Atlanta on Oct 27-28. You may notice that we are traveling THREE times in October and all of our pocketbooks are stretched very thin at the moment. If you have the means and the heart, we would love anything that you could donate!

We also wanted to let everyone know that there’s now a new way for alumni to stay involved with the Valkyries! We’re opening up social memberships to all alumni and supporters! What this means is you’re privy to all our listserv emails (digest format; one a day max, if any; optional), you’re entitled to a warm up shirt, invited to any event the Valkyries hold for the players, access to order any team kit the players may order, and most importantly, you’re eligible to run for any officer position on the board during annual elections!

Social membership will cost the same as current players ($100 per season) but as an introductory offer, you can become a social member for just $50! As a card carrying member, you can stay connected to your favorite team and help us fundraise at the same time. WIN-WIN! If this is something you’re interested in, please contact Francine at president@austinvalkyries.com or go to our website on the Alumni tab to pay online.

If you need/want some Valks gear we will have limited sizes in our tshirts! Checkout the  2012 AlumniRuck Off and the official Valkyries Warmup tshirts.
