Fundraising Information for the 2020 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. 

Families will be required to sell a total of:

$400 worth of raffle tickets - 1 child registered
$550 worth of raffle tickets - 2 or more children registered ($550 cap for families)

This year, we are excited to offer raffle tickets for a Purse Bash, and families who have 2 or more children registered can choose how they which tickets they want for that additional $150 in raffle ticket sales.

Families who choose to “buy out”, will be asked to pay the $400 (or $550) 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 $400 or $550 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.

  • Kona Ice Truck at home games and events
  • Dinner fun nights (organization could earn 10-20% per dinner)
  • Fall Festival
  • Hoagie Sales
