A Message from Boosters

Dear Parents, Coaches, and Board Members:

Our season has started off with a bang, 9-1-1, and this week our Varsity kicks-off league play with Westminister at home on Wednesday, and away at Fountain Valley on Thursday!  These games count so please support all the teams with lots of cheers!

Our NO WASH CAR WASH was a great success – even without water!  There was a steady line of cars throughout the day and the girls did a great job (with much assistance from the coaches)!  Thank you to the Booster members, Gels, Kalatschans, Hendrixs, Dewans, Lukowskys, Blandas, Hubbards, Warmingtons, and many others who gave of their time to help organize and support this event, including food, supplies, EZ ups, setup, cleanup, etc.  This is our biggest and only true fundraiser so every dollar helps us reach our goal.

As we mentioned at the parent meeting and parent party, one of the main reasons the Field Hockey program is so amazing for our girls is that we have great support from our player families, in addition to our great coaches.  As you know, our fundraising goals for our 2014  “Finish Strong” campaign is $25,000.  To date, we are at 15% of our goal!  Your donations allow us to get extra training, state of the art equipment, additional coaching support for in-season and off-season, tournament fees, lodging and food for tournaments, team bonding events, and much more.  This year ALL players also received brand new dry-fit polo jerseys in both navy and white that the girls are most thankful for!  We would like to thank those of you who have generously donated to our campaign thus far!

    You may give your donation to Nancy Vaughan made out to NHHS Field Hockey Boosters, and any amount is very much appreciated.  We are hopeful for 100% participation from our field hockey families this year!  If you would like you could also donate to the Newport Harbor Educational Foundation, in order to receive your tax deduction.  You simply indicate how much of your donation is restricted to Field Hockey.

    If you have any questions or suggestions please reach out to your coaches and/or Board Members.  We look forward to a great season!

    Go Sailors!
