This season, we have once again partnered with Snap! Raise to raise money to support our operations and to fund purchases of new uniforms and equipment. Our 2023 campaign will begin next Tuesday, September 5, and run through October 3.

We are counting on families to do the following:

· first, create a Snap! Raise account by selecting this link (or see the attached flyer) – families with two or more athletes may create a single account: www.snap-raise.com/join_code/404302715
· next, enter 20 or more E-mail addresses of contacts such as friends, family and co-workers who may be willing to contribute to our campaign.
· then, select “Share Campaign.” Once the campaign begins, Snap! will send communications to all of the e-mail addresses that you have provided.

That’s it! During the campaign, you may continue to add additional contacts, and share a link to your athlete’s page via text messages or on social media.

Please note that Snap! Raise DOES NOT share your e-mail address, or your contacts’ e-mail addresses, with ANY third parties, and your contacts will have the ability to opt out of receiving communications.
