In preparation for a scheduled spring season, the Yuba College women’s soccer team is currently fundraising for COVID-19 testing for 25 percent of the team, as well as meal money for each game and practice/travel gear.
To date, Yuba College has raised $3, 445 of a goal of $5,000, which head coach Cristina Baggio said will not only help prepare the team for the January restart, but the future of the program as well.
There are 17 days left in the fundraiser.
The school is tentatively set to make a decision on Dec. 18 whether or not it will opt into the California Community College Athletic Association contingency plan.
