Fund Raiser - This year we will be selling raffle tickets .Everyone is required to sell raffles. This is different than other raffles. See information below, EACH PARTICIPANT WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SELLING 10 TICKETS AT $10 A PIECE. ( Unless you opted to buy out during registration) (buy out is $50.00) FundCrazr’s mission is to give your non-profit organization the ability to raise money with ease, while also creating an unforgettable experience for your donors. When your donors purchase FundCrazr tickets they are given access to the discount store CrazrSavr, and are automatically entered into fun sweepstakes tied to their favorite sporting events. FundCrazr's unique fundraising solution is a blast for all involved, and is just the fundraiser to meeting your funding needs. We will be having our sweepstakes with the NFL where for 5 weeks there will be winners! Once completed we will post the link to see if your a winner.

The first practice will start on Saturday August 3 at 9 AM TO 11 AM AT Gates E..S for ALL LEVELS. Then practices will be Monday thru Thursday starting at 6:30 pm at Gates E.S. Practices will eventually be moved to Ironbridge Park once the field is open to us. Once school starts practices will be up to each head coach Mon thru Thurs. 

Games will begin on September 7. Games are either morning or night. Morning would be Flag - 9am followed by Minors Juniors and Seniors. Usually a little over an hour before next game starts. Evening will start at 5 pm. This will be a 8 week/game Regular season with playoffs if your team makes it. Flag has no playoffs.

With the fee paid your child will get a Jersey, helmet, mouth piece and shoulder pads. Pants are no longer provided. We wear solid black pants.Flag needs to have black game pants and are not required to be padded. 
Jersey and equipment will need to be turned back in at the last game. For this year only we will be selling left over pants that we have in stock.

Here at Gates we try our best to keep fees down. Fundraising is one way we are able to do it. Football is expensive to start as we have the latest up to date helmets. Every two years we get all of our helmets recondition for player safety which cost us about $22.00 a helmet. Every year we have to purchase new helmets based on the size we may not have enough of. Shoulder pads is another expense and we will need to purchase more this year.

Fundraising helped us with the purchase of the New Scoreboard at Ironbridge Park. We will also need to purchase new pads for the sleds and new dummies as we have gotten away without buying any for at least 6 years. We also started to lose space and were able to purchase the two storage containers one at Gates and the other at Ironbridge.

These costs are never put into the registration fees as it would be too high for us to even play. Fundraising helps to keep the cost down and is much easier to do as I know a lot of folks will support the kids.

We also have held three Golf Tournaments the last three years and we need to get more support as this is a big fundraiser for our Gates Athletes. The more support and teams we can get to play Golf will also help in not doing as much fundraisers per sport as the Golf Tournament could take on a lot of our expenses.

The Sheehy Ford is another Big One! We fell short last year in meeting our target. Which resulted in less fundraiser funds. 

So this year we will need to go back to the individual Fundraising per sport. We will still try the other Fundraisers in hopes to get a stronger turnout.
