Coaches Challenge for Membership
August 16, 2010Kankakee Valley High School
Let the Coaches Challenge Begin!?
It is a new school year. A fresh start for fall athletes and teams; a great time for a friendly competition which the Athletic Boosters fondly titles: COACHES CHALLENGE. What is this challenge? It is a challenge engaging the coaches of the fall season sport teams to encourage membership in the Boosters while trying to reach certain levels in order to win "cash" for their teams. Each team has the chance to win monetary prizes based upon their membership level. A Monetary prize is payable if the team reaches 50%, 75% or 100%. If a team reaches 100% membership within their sport, not only do they win cash, but the Booster Officers will host the team to a food party.
For the fall sporting season, the teams competing include: Football: Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity, Girls Cross Country, Boys Cross Country, Volleyball: Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity, Boys Tennis, Girls Golf, Boys Soccer: Junior Varsity and Varsity, Girls Soccer: Junior Varsity and Varsity and Cheerleading: Junior Varsity and Varsity.
Membership fees are $20 per family per school year and a choice of a Kougar seat cushion, t-shirt or magnet is given with every membership. Should your athlete play more than one sport during the school year, your membership will allow the winter and spring team rosters to benefit from your fall membership. Membership forms can be printed from the website, picked up at the Athletic Office, or from the respective coach. After completion, forms can be returned via mail, return to the athletic office or turned in to the concessions stand.
During the 2009-2010 school year, the majority of teams experienced increases in their memberships during their respective challenge season. Girls Junior Varsity and Varsity Basketball reached 75% and 50% respectively, thus allowing these teams to receive a cash prize. Another honorable mention is Boys Tennis where they experienced a 36% rise in memberships.
The Coaches Challenge for the fall sports ends on October 1, 2010.
Good luck athletes, teams and coaches...Let the games begin! Let's see what team(s) can win cash and food!
