DHS Track and Field Operational Costs

Posted on 03/31/2021

Background Information

Even though we are technically four teams (frosh/soph boy, frosh/soph girls, varsity boys, varsity girls), we only have three total coaching stipends to use. The parcel tax funds a single class 1 coaching stipend and two class 2 coaching stipends (Thank you, Parcel Tax). 

We receive no financial support from the district for coaching stipends, equipment, travel, or anything else. 

We have to fundraise for the remainder of our operational costs, which, by definition, are necessary for our sport to function.

We will have missed our Halden Invitational Income for two years in a row, which means we are completely dependent on donations. 

 

Projected Expenses based on previous years:

Hiring a starter for our home meets: $1,050

Booster paid coaches: $9,000

Sub costs for teachers who coach: $1,514.59

Equipment of the sport/program: estimate based on years past: $5,000.00

Total: $16,564

 

Your donation is optional, but we will put it to good use. The suggested donation for each family is $100.00.
