Welcome to the 2020 season of Mountain View Spartan Football!
This has been an uncertain time for all of us and I'm eager to report that our coaches and student-athletes have been working extremely hard to get ready for this season. We are now planning to start the season in December, with our first games in January. To that end, I want to make you aware of the program objectives, share some of our fundraising goals and let you know about an exciting matching donation that has been pledged!
I’m very proud of our accomplishments this past season, which culminated in a CCS playoff berth, proving to our player’s good things will happen when you set high expectations and work hard to accomplish those goals. I have always believed that there is more to be learned from football than football itself. Success is not measured in wins and losses but by the team’s ability to exemplify the core values of respect, integrity, cooperation, teamwork, self-discipline, sportsmanship, and citizenship. I believe these values matter more now than ever. I am confident our players will continue to experience success as Spartans and in the world beyond MVHS! The overriding objective of our program is to offer our student-athletes the best environment possible to learn, train, and play the game
The cost of providing the necessary equipment, uniforms, and technology continues to grow with our overall emphasis on safety. We expect to have 80 players participating in our football program this year and expect to see continued growth, assuring exciting football seasons for years to come! To keep our program competitive and on par with the other teams we play, the needs of our program far exceed what our school budgets are able to provide. Our goal is to be the best we can be and to do that we will need your help. We have asked all our players to help raise $500 per player by asking for tax-deductible donations. Money received in this year’s fundraiser will go to provide the following items:
- Replacement Helmets/Shoulder Pads $6,900
- New FS Game Jerseys $4,800
- New Conditioning sleds and harnesses $4,500
- Game Video photographer $4,000
- Misc. & Fundraising expenses $4,700
- Saturday Film review and Team Meals $8,000
This year, a generous donor has stepped forward and offered to match donations raised in this campaign up to $17,000. Donations made before Oct 18 will be matched $2 for each $1 donated! Your donation will be tripled! Donations made after Oct 18, but before Nov 15 will be matched dollar for dollar. This is an incredible opportunity to get the funds we need to run a safe and competitive program. I’d like to thank you in advance for considering a donation to our program, it means a great deal to our players, coaches, and the Spartan Family.
Thank you on behalf of MVHS Football. Go Spartans!
