Thank you for your continued support of UVA Athletics. The college athletics landscape is continuing to evolve and, as you likely know, last year, it became permissible for student-athletes to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness (NIL). As the NIL landscape has also evolved, I want to make you aware of some of the current opportunities that exist for our student-athletes and how you can get involved.  

Early in the spring of 2022, a small group of trusted alumni committed their time and resources to establish Cav Futures, a collective designed to assist all student-athletes at the University of Virginia to capitalize on their NIL for lifetime success. In March, Cav Futures introduced Lo Davis as the Executive Director and established their 3 pillars:

(1) to provide an inclusive marketplace for student-athletes to capitalize on their NIL and allow supporters to engage with student-athletes in compliance with current University, NCAA, state and federal policies and legislation. 

(2) utilize NIL branding to better the Charlottesville community through community and social activism. 

(3) provide education, readiness and networking in order to maximize student-athletes' potential through NIL, professional readiness and long-term career placement. 

We remain steadfast in our commitment to academic and athletic excellence and, in order to continue the proud tradition of success at UVA, a robust NIL program is now part of the equation. 

We need your help! NIL opportunities can benefit the community, businesses, fans, student-athletes and anyone who supports the Hoos.

To engage with our student-athletes, you can:

  • SUPPORT Cav Futures to help UVA student-athletes with their NIL endeavors.
  • JOIN the Cav Club, this is the best way to connect with your favorite student-athletes.  
  • PURCHASE student-athlete jerseys.
  • ENGAGE student-athletes about possible NIL opportunities by completing our interest form.
  • SEND any NIL question you have to

Thank you for your continued support of Virginia Athletics!
