Each year over 300 families benefit from our non-profit football club. We are passionate about providing every kid a chance – a chance to learn how to be a unique individual yet work as a team, a chance to improve football skills, and maybe most importantly, a chance to embrace what it means to be a Raider. To practice in an environment that embraces our Core Values of honour, excellence, leadership, and community, we give kids hope that someone cares and wants to see them succeed and this opens the door to future opportunities.
Fundraising allows us to cover our expensive overhead and equipment costs while keeping our registration costs affordable.
How do we spend our fundraising dollars?
- Registration Fees: We pride ourselves in making football accessible to everyone, regardless of their family finances. In addition to keeping our registration fees affordable to most, every season we proudly sponsor any youth who lack the means (but have the desire!) to participate.
- Equipment: An important part of kids being on the field is being safe and protected. To ensure this is always the case, we supply full gear to all players (they supply their cleats and mouth guard). To fully equip each player our costs are approx. $1,000 - $1,500 per person, but with care we are able to use the equipment for more than one season. Each season a large portion of our budget is used to update and replace aging equipment.
We welcome you to join us at the Bill Moore field from August – November or at the Woodcote field from April – June to enjoy one of our games or practices. Let us know if we can send you a schedule!
