Fundraising Information for the 2018 Season

As you might expect, the costs to run a program of this magnitude are tremendous.  In order to keep registration fees at a reasonable level, we must find ways to generate additional monies in order to cover all of our costs.  Items such as the lease of the property, insurance, field maintenance, electric, propane, portable bathroom rental, cooking equipment, etc. are necessary for us to operate.  That doesn't include the equipment and uniforms needed by the players and cheerleaders.

In order to raise these needed funds, the Flyers organization will conduct different fundraisers throughout the year. 

All families are expected to participate in our Yankee Candle fundraiser. After that, each family can make up any combination of Cash Week/Gun Bash tickets to total $380 in profit, OR you can buy out of selling tickets.

Families who choose to “buy out”, will be asked to pay the $380 buy out at registration.  This is so we can determine how many families will be participating in our fundraisers.

Turning In Your Fundraising Money

Fundraising can be turned in at the Board Room during practice. Make sure that a Board Member signs your fundraising that you have turned in your items. Please do not turn in fundraisers to coaches, team parents, or at the concession stand.  If for some reason you are not able to make it to the field any evening the week the fundraiser is due, please contact a Board member to make other arrangements.


An Important Note About Fundraising...

Each year we have families who have difficulty selling their fundraising tickets for various reasons.  If you think you will have problems selling tickets, please notify a board member at the START OF THE SEASON.  We do offer the option of choosing to “buy-out” of the fundraiser.  If the $380 fee creates an issue, we will do our best to work out an arrangement to help you satisfy your fundraising obligation.  However, we need to know this at the start of the season, and not at the deadline for turning in your tickets.  If you wait until the tickets are due, you will be required to purchase them yourself.  Please understand that this is not done to punish anyone, but it is not fair to have the majority of our families either sell or purchase their tickets, and then have other families who don’t sell anything.  Out of respect for others, please help us by doing your part.


 All fundraising money must be turned in to the Board on or before the due date of the fundraiser.
