The Roy-Hart Sports Boosters need your help!

With football getting its necessary funding through some really impressive fund raising efforts by the Boosters, many school district residents are under the wrong impression that the other sports that were on the chopping block -- modified sports -- have been saved as well.

That's not so!

Earlier this week the Boosters were $600 short of their goal for reinstatement. They need to be able to fill that gap and present the funds to the district ASAP, so that RH fall modified sports can be rescheduled with the league and section, coaches can be hired, and an announcement can be made, so that teams can begin practicing on September 1. Prospective participants will need to present appropriate physical exam and any additional health forms to their coaches and the school nurse, prior to practice. There's a lot that needs to be done in a short period of time!

I strongly suggest that all parents who have a kid who's interested in Roy-Hart athletics (or will be in the coming years) get actively involved with the Boosters. They need all the community support that they get to raise the necessary funds.

Realize that this means of sports funding will probably be the new norm. EVERY year the Boosters and parents will have to fund football, modified sports and maybe more. That means that the parents of the district have to take a very active role if they expect their boy or girl to play a sport. The Boosters Club is the best way to do this.
