Raptors End Zone Club
Ways You Can Help
"Many Hands Make Light Work"
Supporting a big time and successful football program takes a community of people willing to contribute their time and talents to the program. It is far too big of an endevour for one, two of even a handful of people to do alone. The Raptors End Zone Club organizes over 30 events designed to make the East Ridge Raptor football experience fun, rewarding and full of memories for the players, coaches, families as well as the entire East Ridge student body, staff and community.
The End Zone Club as a variety of volunteer oppotunities to fit your skills, abilities and time committment. We do need a few leades, but more important if finding those simply willing to help out. It is our hope that every family will find a fit with at least one program below to support the Raptors. We have tried to summarize most of our opportunities below to help guide you to your most rewarding experience.
Once you have found your opportunity of choice, please click on the specific event found in the header just below the one you just clicked on the left hand side of the web page. Under the specific heading you will find others that have chosen the same path, as well as contact information.
Of course, you are welcome to participate in more than one event. The more people that help the less work and stress it is for everyone involved.
In case they never say it, we'll say it here: "On behalf of your son, Head Coach Mike Pendino and the entire coaching staff, thank you for contributing your time and talent to support the boys of Raptor football." Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance!
