Five Fundraisers, One Goal = $100,000
The end of another school marks the start of the next football season. With that comes the challenge of funding the program so it can continue to impact our children's lives through incredible life lessons. Hard work, commitment, discipline, accountability, dealing with adversity, learning how to compete, and learning the true meaning of team.
The game of football is amazing. However, our priority is teaching student-athletes how to thrive. Our success on the field is only topped by our collective success in the classroom.
All of that costs. As a matter of fact that cost is approximately $1,200 per player to cover all of our expenses for the year.
Here's how we do it:
(1) DIRECT DONATION REQUEST FOR $650 (Goal - $35,000) srfootball.com/donate
For less than $2.60 per day, for the 250 days a year, on average we see your student-athlete, you can help us reach our goal of fifty-four (54) families donating $650. Here is a breakdown of what the $650/year covers.
$150 - Falcon Gear & Uniforms
Each student-athlete will receive shorts, shirts, sweatshirts and sweatpants and other swag. Those items will be the most frequently used items in your child's closet, as we use them in each of the 250 days we will be together. Your donation will also allow us to purchase one new set of uniforms, our first addition in three seasons.
$150 - Year Round Strength & Condition Program, Specialized Workouts & Training
We have year-round coaching support in an activity we can only hope translates to lifelong habits. With the exception of late November and December, we work with team 10 1/2 months a year helping team members reach their full potential. When our kids put in the work, they can see results, which can be very motivating. This valuable investment that pays off in the short term and long run.
Both the coaching, equipment upgrades we have made and plan to make costs. With your help, we continue to develop this healthy habit.
$350 - Season Expenses
The remaining portion helps cover all in-season expenses, including but not limited to:
Coaches Compensation (above the 19.5 units provided by district) - $30,000
Equipment - Sleds, Pads, Practice Jerseys, Footballs, Cones - $17,000
Game Day Video / Hudl - $8,500
Insurance, Tax Prep, Fees, Web Site - $3,500
IMPORTANT - No #FalconFootballFamily member will go without ANYTHING, EVER, if their family is not in position to donate. We will provide everything to everyone. We are grateful to families in position to donate more than the $650 requested, to help cover the costs for everyone.
