But, we are in dire need of funds for our ever growing program. The money our school gets from the school district for athletics is minimal. Thus, our athletic department can only help out 4 or 5 of our 24 sports each year. We have a very large team of about 200 student athletes each season. Each year our program grows and becomes more costly to operate. It is very expensive to outfit our team members with proper, quality uniforms and warm ups as well as the training and competition equipment they need to train, compete at the highest level, and help them achieve their individual and team goals.
We must pay for our athletes to enter some of the high level invitational track meets they need to get the necessary competition. Our budget from the school covers approximately half of those meets. We are also hoping to supplement our coaches stipends. Currently, we have 5 paid stipends for coaches. But, with 200+ student athletes on the team, we need more quality coaches to give them the attention they require and deserve.
We are hoping to raise funds this year for the following:
1) New varsity team warm ups for both boys and girls
2) New uniform tops for our junior varsity boys team (they are currently wearing uniforms that are 15 years old)
3) Various equipment items needed for practice and competitions.
4) Coaches pay
5) Costs of invitational track meets
6) Transportation (bus) costs to and from track meets
Any help you can give to the 2018 Wildcat Track and Field program would be much appreciated by the track team members and coaches. Thank you so much for your support!
