President's Message

Did you know people who play high school sports tend to get better jobs, with better pay, and that those benefits last a lifetime?  A growing body of research shows that students participating in athletics exhibit:

 

• Higher grades, expectations and attainment

• Greater personal confidence and self-esteem

• Greater connections with school

• Stronger peer relationships

• More academically oriented friends

• Greater family attachment and more frequent interaction with parents

• More restraint in avoiding risky behavior

• Greater involvement in volunteer work

 

Athletics Matter!  They make a difference for our students, our school and our community!

 

We recognize there are many requests for support during registration and that it gets expensive.  That is why we want to say THANK YOU for your support! Sports at SRVHS are almost entirely “SELF FUNDED” through donations and support from the SRVHS Athletic Boosters Club and would not exist without your financial contributions.  Here are some of the things Athletic Boosters has helped fund:

 

• New stadium score board

• New all weather track

• Basketball game day chairs

• Wrestling mats

• Cheerleader mats

• Stunt team mats

• New diving boards

• Outdoor pop ups

• Baseball field backstop

• Second pole vault pit

• Lacrosse helmets

• Tennis machines

• Football helmets

• Wrestling mat light

• Annual donation to the Athletic Department of $70,000

 

There is more than one way to support SRVHS Athletics.  Here are some ways you can help:
