Winter Sports Weekend 3

This January, more than 40 families who are members of the Jesse Harper Council and Athletics Director's Circle attended Winter Sports Weekend at the University of Notre Dame.

During the weekend, members attended a variety of exclusive events and were able to bond over a shared love of Notre Dame Athletics during a Women's basketball game, a Men's Basketball game, and two Hockey games. The Irish did not disappoint—it was a clean sweep with four victories!

One of our flagship events—the Student-Athlete Networking Lunch—featured Jesse Harper Council and Athletics Director's Circle members as mentors to more than 70 student-athletes.

This event was hosted by two student-athletes, Paris Thompson (Women's Volleyball) and Eddie Scheidler (Football). Notre Dame student-athletes registered in advance to be paired with a mentor to help provide them with life and career advice for their time after graduation.

The University also hosted a Happy Hour at the Schivarelli Lounge in Notre Dame Stadium where members gained full access to the Fighting Irish's iconic locker room, Play Like a Champion Today sign, and shared photo opportunities on the field.

Guests were welcomed by Jack Swarbrick and spent time with Dick Corbett Head Football Coach Marcus Freeman.
