The Adopt-A-Team program encourages faculty and staff to attend intercollegiate athletics competition and support student-athletes at DePauw University. Adopt-A-Team members will attend three or more home contests together (one or more home contests for golf and tennis), and will meet the team following one contest.  Participants in the Adopt-A-Team program will receive a DePauw t-shirt representing their team and are asked to wear this t-shirt when attending competition.

Team assignments are created by season - current teams available include men's basketball, women's basketball, men's swimming and diving, women's swimming and diving, and men's and women's indoor track and field.  At this time, only one 'Adopt-A-Team' team per sport, please.  Winter sports teams must be requested by November 19.

Interested DePauw faculty and staff members should create teams of no less than eight and no more than twelve people.  One individual should be designated as the "team captain" and send a team roster, along with t-shirt sizes, and preferred team(s) to Stevie Baker-Watson (  By Monday, November 25, your team captain will receive a confirmation email.

Individuals who are interested in being a part of the Adopt-A-Team program but don't have a team ("free agent"), can contact Stevie Baker-Watson directly ( for placement on a team.
