Calling All Supporters of Rocket Athletics!

RP Logo

Attention Parents and adult supporters of Reeths-Puffer High School Athletics!

The Rocket Boosters are in need of your help.  Many of you may not even be aware of this organization, but over the years, we have been supporting all Reeths-Puffer athletes in a variety of ways.  Below are just a few examples of the items this club has been able to provide for the Reeths-Puffer athletes.

Student Athlete Scholarship                            Football Practice Pants

Sideline Shelters – Soccer                                 Track Hurdles

Baseball/Softball Field Refurbishment       Golf Bags

Wrestling Mat                                                         Concussion Measuring System

Bathrooms at Ball Fields                                    Summer Athletic Trainer

This year we have paid for HUDL accounts for all sports, allowing participating athletes to create their very own “highlight reel” for the season.  All coaches and athletes use HUDL as a tool to improve their teams and personal skills.

Participation in the Rocket Boosters has continued to dwindle, and now we are forced with the realization that unless we can gain members from our current and future parents of athletes, the Boosters may need to disband.  Our goal would be to have at least one parent or coach representative for each sport at each meeting.  While this may seem simple, our last board meeting had only seven attendees.  Our latest estimate is that R-PHS has over 200 students participating in either freshmen, JV, or Varsity sports.

While each sport may also do separate fund-raisers, the Booster Club raises funds for all sports, regardless of number of participants or time of year.  We are looking for new ideas, new fund-raisers, and NEW MEMBERS!  Our current President and Vice President are the proud parents of student athletes of the class of 2014, and our Treasurer has continued to support the club even though his “last” student athlete graduated before our athletes were out of elementary.

The R-P Sports Boosters Club meets the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Media Center.  Please join us and spread the word to other parents as well.  We need your support.  If you have any questions, or would like more information, please feel free to email any of the following people:  Charlie Hoover at raechasmatt@comcast.net , Jennifer Romanosky at jeepin1015@comcast.net, Mike Greeley at mgreely@shelbybank.com , Brent or Kim Ross at bkblross@gmail.com or Tony Daves at tdaves19@gmail.com.
