Raptors End Zone Club
The Raptors End Zone Club mission is to champion the East Ridge High School Football Program and school by involving the families of all football players and the communities of Afton, Cottage Grove, Denmark Township, Newport and Woodbury in our various support activities, creating a superior experience and pride for the East Ridge players, coaches and fans.
We provide a vital support function to the Raptors football program by working closely with the coaching staff and school administration to supplement the program. Here just a few examples of what we do: fund additional coaches, purchase equipment and transportation, provide pizza parties for all teams, provide items for fan fun on game nights, player recognition and financial aid for participants in need.
The most important item you can provide to the Raptors End Zone Club is your time and talent. Please see our volunteer needs located on the left side of this web page. We have many opportunities to help whether it is a couple of hours for a single event or time spent weekly over the course of a year in a leadership position, we need you. It is very rewarding to contribute your time.
It is our hope, and the expectation of Head Coach Mike Pendino, that every family become an official member of the Raptors End Zone Club. Many other sports have had to institute an additional “player fee” on top of the registration fee paid to the district. These fees can be $100 - $300 per player or more. Even though football is by far the most expensive sport to fund, we do not institute such a fee thanks to our volunteers and other successful fundraising efforts and support from our local business community.
We do need your participation in becoming a paid booster member. We try to give you something of value, provide social opportunities and by becoming a paid member you earn the right to vote in elections and other major decisions - you can have a voice in how the booster club runs.
