This August, the Olympia High School Volleyball program had one of the largest turnouts of young women in our program’s history! Nearly seventy young women participated in the OHS summer camp and in the August team tryouts.
We had an especially large number of incoming freshman turning out and wanting to learn about, and play Volleyball.
Because of this demand, the Booster Club spearheaded a successful appeal to the Olympia School District Board of Director requesting that Olympia High School be allowed to form a fourth team to make room for a larger number of freshmen to participate in the program.
For the first time ever, the 2017 Olympia High School Volleyball program will be allowed to have a fourth team to allow a greater number of Freshmen to participate on a team! As a result, fifty-one young women turning out earned a spot on one of the four teams. The parents and players are thrilled.
While the School District and Building Administrators have been supportive, they have budget challenges and allowed the fourth team to occur if we could come up with financial support. The creation of the fourth team has added program expenses for transportation, a part-time coach and additional referees for the games.
Many have already stepped up to support the program, but the Booster club must raise the funds to eliminate the budget shortfall created by the fourth team. We are appealing to Olympia Alumni parents and supporters to help fill the budget gap needed to make sure this program succeeds. While the Booster Club, many parents and the ASB have contributed to cover additional costs, we calculate there is still a need to raise approximately $1000 dollars more to pay for the new team.
Could you help us by making a financial contribution of $50, $100, $250 or any amount to support this effort? Your support would be deeply appreciated.
