As the GRACE athletics program grows so does the need for volunteers. In order to successfully put together a sports program, we need head coaches, assistant coaches, and scorekeepers, bookkeepers, statisticians, team managers, game announcers, active booster members, and a facility set-up crew. If you feel led to join the fun and serve our school and student-athletes in any way, please contact the booster club or athletic director.
In past years we have enjoyed the initiative taken by parents to fulfill the role of “team mom/dad.” A “team mom/dad” supports the team by encouraging players, organizing carpools, disseminating directions to events, providing refreshments, and promoting team camaraderie by overseeing post game outings. If you are able to support one of our teams in this manner, please contact either the head coach or the athletic director.
Eagles Club (Boosters)
In order to promote school spirit and defray rising athletic costs, we are looking for highly motivated volunteers with innovative fundraising ideas as well as the ability to transition these ideas into action. We are committed to growing an athletic program of excellence and recognize the necessity of a Boosters Club with extraordinary vision as we strive to reach this goal.
All athletes and their families are required to participate in booster projects, athletic fundraising efforts, and game management duties. Due to the difficulties that the booster club and coaches have experienced in filling these duties, we are requiring parents of participating athletes to commit to serving a specified number of times per season. In order to determine the number of times that a family will need to participate, the total number of games and responsibilities will be multiplied to determine the total needed slots. The resulting number will be the number of times that a family will need to fulfill a needed role, such as admissions, concessions, score book, scoreboard, lines calls, etc. at home games. Failure to fulfill the specified responsibility without finding a replacement will impact the student-athlete’s playing time and participation. The idea is to equally share these responsibilities to ensure that no one group of volunteers is unduly burdened.
