Dear Rye Football Players, Cheerleaders, Family, Alumni, and Friends,
It’s still spring, but the Rye Football Association (RFA) is already busy making plans for the 2010 season. We are energized by the proud Rye football tradition, which continues stronger than ever following both the 2007 & 2008 team’s spectacular repeat win in the Class B State Championship games. The Garnets have had three state championship wins in just four years. It’s a tradition comprised of hard work, accomplishment, pride, and enjoyment.
After a successful 2009 debut in the Class A division, complete with a seventh consecutive win over arch-rival Harrison, the Rye football program will face an even more exciting and challenging season in 2010. At the same time, the RFA faces the challenge of fund raising in a very difficult economic environment. The Association plays an important role in supporting the football program, such as paying for:
- Football camp buses and scholarships;
- One set of new varsity jerseys every year;
- Game day breakfasts for varsity players;
- Players, coaches and guests to attend the December awards dinner;
- Recognition gifts for players and coaches and trophies/banners for the school;
- College scholarships;
- Purchases for the benefit of the program as a whole (i.e., fitness equipment)
It is our hope that you will join the RFA, not only to support our athletes, but also to enjoy all of the fun and excitement of being part of the Rye football family!
The membership drive, the football journal, and our Rye football merchandise sales are our primary fundraisers. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation from all football families, and as many friends and alums as possible.
To become a member of the RFA, please fill out and return the enclosed form by Saturday, June 12 ( 7 vs. 7 Day). If you are willing to volunteer, please let us know on the form. Be sure to include an email address so we can keep you up to date.
In addition, the Rye Football Journal will be available by the first varsity home game and makes a great season souvenir. Placing an ad in the Journal in support of your player is a wonderful Rye tradition. Ad forms will be sent out in June; the deadline for placing an ad is July 31. This is another great way to show your support (and for grandparents and friends to do so too!).
We thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please contact Tracy Eck, Lisa McReddie, Leslie Pickup, Meg O’Callaghan, or Daniela Vitiello
