Frequently Asked Questions
How can parents help?
The needed revenues associated with athletics are largely derived by memberships in our Athletic Association and fundraising efforts. We ask for your continued support financially to provide the quality resources and equipment necessary to allow our student athletes to be as successful as they can be.
All Sports Athletic Booster Club versus Individual Sport Booster Clubs
The Riverwood Athletic Association is the school’s only athletic booster club and is specifically chartered to provide support for ALL of our sports programs. We raise funds for all of our teams to support each sport’s annual operating budget. Support for our athletic teams is centralized in this way to ensure quality in all of our programs.
Gifts Directed to Specific Programs
We do recognize that athletic teams periodically have extraordinary needs for equipment or other enhancements to their programs and that there are parents who desire to provide for those needs. Riverwood now permits gifts to be made to specific programs. To facilitate giving toward a program’s needs, coaches, in preparing their budgets for the year, have created “wish lists” to provide potential contributors with their extraordinary program needs. If you desire to make a gift to a specific program, above and beyond your membership, you must first join the Athletic Association at the $1,000 or $500 membership level. Wish lists are available from the Head Coach, the Athletic Association Board, and the Athletic Director.
