About Riverwood Athletic Association

It’s Great to be a Riverwood Raider!

Riverwood is proud of its tradition of athletic excellence. More than 50% of the student body participates in one of the 23 athletic programs. Over the years, the Raiders have captured many state championships and state runner-up titles.

The Athletic Association (RAA) is the school’s only athletic booster club and provides support for all sports programs. The RAA’s primary purpose is to raise money for athletic programs and it is the financial backbone for all athletic programs at Riverwood. The school receives NO funding for athletics from the Fulton County Board of Education. Having a single organization allows the booster club to function as one entity, and ensures consistency and continuity to all sports programs. 

With an annual operating budget of over $145,000, the Athletic Association relies largely on membership donations from every sports family to provide funds to operate over 30 girls and boys teams. Other fundraising efforts include operating the concession stand for all events, and selling spirit items.

The operating budget for sports teams includes uniforms, athletic training, facilities expenses, awards, coaching clinics, small and large equipment purchases, first aid, field paint, tournament entry fees, coaches' gear, coaches' travel expenses, and lodging and travel for Raiders at State tournaments.

Over the years, the RAA has purchased new equipment for the stadium PA system, new goals for the lacrosse and soccer fields, mats for the cheerleading squads, new windscreens for the tennis courts and baseball field, and hurdles for the track team. It is the goal of the RAA to raise the incremental funds to provide funding for other needed facility improvements.      

General membership is open to everyone including parents, guardians, alumni, faculty and friends of Riverwood. The Athletic Association Committee governs the business and affairs of the organization. A Parent Representative from each sport serves on the Athletic Association Committee to ensure that each sport’s needs are being addressed.

A special thanks to all of RAA members for helping to provide a strong athletic program that allows students to grow, face challenges, and succeed.
