Athletes United (AU) is a student-run volunteer group open to varsity athletes. (AU) was created by Dartmouth Women’s Varsity Soccer Players Myra Sack ’10 and Becky Poskin ’09. Desiring to make sports accessible to all Upper Valley kids and concerned that registration fees at Dartmouth camps and clinics precluded some children from participating, AU provides a competitive recreational sports environment for young children in the Upper Valley—entirely free of charge. In addition, Athletes United expands Dartmouth student-athletes’ visibility in the community, connecting them to Upper Valley children as role models and mentors. The AU model accommodates both the rigors of varsity-athletes’ schedules and the transportation obstacle for Upper Valley families. Each week, Dartmouth athletes travel to designated Upper Valley communities to run practices. Then, each Sunday, participants come to Dartmouth for "Game Day", enjoying friendly competition and camaraderie with children from across the Upper Valley.
