NEWS AND NOTES

CONCESSION STAND HELP AT SUB-VARSITY HOME GAMES

We are in desperate need of help on our home games for the 9th and JV football teams.  This is a great opportunity for varsity parents to help!  All you have to do is sell items such as candy, popcorn, and drinks during the games.  You would not miss your player’s game because of working the concession stand. If you are interested in helping, please click on this link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4eaba82ea57-football1

VARSITY TEAM FUND FOR HALF-TIME SNACKS

One of our secret weapons is to provide half-time snacks during varsity games.  Half-times of varsity games are 28 minutes and that gives us ample time to refuel the players with things such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Gatorade chews, fruit, granola bars, etc.  We are asking $75 from each varsity player to cover all the expenses.  Checks can be made out to Kim Kelly or sent via Venmo at Kimkelly_64.  Cash is always good too!

JOIN THE BOOSTER CLUB

A great way to help not only football, but also all programs at Foster is to join the Booster club. Memberships start for as little as $25. Please check out www.fosterfalcons.com for all Foster Athletic Booster Club membership options.

DONATIONS FOR NEW ICE BATH TUBS

We are currently looking for any parents, friends, etc, that would like to donate to our fund to get new ice baths. We are currently looking to get 4 300 gallon Rubbermaid Ice tubs to get the players ice baths as often as 1-2 times a week to help with recovery.  It is one of the best things that we can do for our players.  They run about $315 each not including shipping.  We are looking to get 4 of them.  Here is the link to see the product:  https://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid-Commercial-Products-FG424700BLA-Structural/dp/B000NPCMZ8/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3RK4139PVIXJT&keywords=300+gallon+rubbermaid&qid=1566782557&s=gateway&sprefix=300+gallon+rubber%2Caps%2C334&sr=8-2.  If you are interested in donating, email  or call Coach McDowell for instructions.

Thank you for hanging with us these first few weeks of football season, but the real fun begins now!

Have a great week!

GO FALCONS!
