As reported by the Lockport US&J last week...

In other district news, Roy-Hart will once again have a sports boosters club. The new club was introduced to the public Thursday night by member Rick DeWaters. The club will be made up of community members and parents who want to provide additional financial support for the district’s athletic program through fundraising. DeWaters said the club is looking for members, and information can be found on the district’s Web site at

The club is planning to have monthly meetings, but the group is in its formative stage, DeWaters said.

The new boosters club will be able to help all Roy-Hart sports programs continue, DeWaters said. Sports provide a number of benefits for students, he added.

“There’s so much to be gained by that participation, it’s so much more than making a basket or scoring a touchdown,” DeWaters said. “So many of life’s lessons can be learned there. Without that experience, I think we are doing a large disservice to kids.”
