Hi everybody, welcome to another year of training with Riversdale Athletics

Registration is now open and can be done through our join us tab. The official registration night is September 12th from 7-9pm at the field house. If you have completed a registration online you do not need to come to the registration night but it is a great time to ask questions if you have any.

We will be holding an AGM at the Field House on October 3rd from 7-9pm. The AGM is a great time to meet the coaches, board members, and ask any questions you may have. There will also be clothing there for you to try on if you wish to order Riversdale Clothing.

Co-op Gift Cards

Co-op Gift Cards

Dear Riversdale Athletics Club member,

As a non-profit organization we attempt to keep registration fees as low as possible, accordingly we ask our members to fundraise to help offset the cost of Field House fees, equipment costs, and coach's travel costs to out of town meets. Fundraising is mandatory for all families who join Riversdale. Since all athletes benefit from the dollars raised through fundraising efforts, Riversdale has implemented a mandatory commitment of $200.00 per family, a fee which you have already paid at registration.

Here's the good news, all or part of that fundraising commitment can be reimbursed to you by participating in Riversdale fundraising opportunities. Currently the purchase of gift cards is our main source of fundraising and a convenient way to do your grocery shopping.

Between now and Monday, May 16th , we will offer CO-OP Gift Cards as a fundraising opportunity. Every $25 purchased in cards is worth $25 from CO-OP (excluding liquor or purchase of other gift cards). The biggest selling feature of the CO-OP gift cards is that they are redeemable at any participating CO-OP in western Canada and can be used for groceries, fuel and hardware. Cards are available in convenient denominations of $25 (i.e. $25, $50, $75, $100) In order to get your $200 returned, we will earn an 9% rebate of the total amount purchased, provided we sell $10,000 worth of cards (it is lower if we don't meet this min.), and 10% if we sell over $15,000. Please invite your family members and friends to participate. Each RAC family's rebate is recorded, and rebates are returned to you by mail after the end of the track season in June. Note that once a family has successfully earned its $200 rebate (the amount equal to the obligatory fundraising fee), rebates earned over and above this amount will be split 50/50 with RAC allowing you to further reduce your fees! To summarize, it's simple math: To receive your full $200 rebate from selling gift cards, you can sell $2225 worth of gift cards at the 9% rebate level or $2000 worth of gift cards at the 10% level. We won't know what level we'll receive back until we get a sense of the sales - I'll keep you posted. Theoretically, this is about 2-3 months' worth of groceries and gas (paid for in advance) for the average family of four. Sell these to yourself and you'll have your $200 back, lickety-split. Sell some to family and friends if you don't wish to front the cash and reduce your overall fees. (You are under no obligation to participate in this current opportunity or any future gift card opportunities).

Email Karen Toews @: kkd@sasktel.net with your orders and I'll set up 2 -3 days at the track or Griffiths where I'll collect the funds in the 3rd week of May. Please include your name/athlete's name, and the amount of CO-OP Gift Cards you wish to order and the denominations you'd like to receive them: $25, $50, $75, $100, etc.

MAKE CHEQUES PAYABLE TO: RIVERSDALE ATHLETICS DEADLINE: MONDAY, MAY 16TH

CO-OP Gift Cards will be delivered in the 4TH week of May. Once again, I'll set up at the track a few days so you can pick up your cards.

The maximum amount of gift cards that Co-Op allows with this fundraiser is $20,000 . Last time we did a gift card fundraiser we raised $14,500 but I'm assuming this will be more popular. So, please send me your orders quickly so you aren't left out. I'll be taking these orders, first come, first served basis.

Thank you! Send questions my way.

Sobeys Gift Cards

Sobeys Gift Cards

Dear Riversdale Athletics Club member,

As a non-profit organization we attempt to keep registration fees as low as possible, accordingly we ask our members to fundraise to help offset the cost of Field House fees, equipment costs, and coach's travel costs to out of town meets. Fundraising is mandatory for all families who join Riversdale. Since all athletes benefit from the dollars raised through fundraising efforts, RAC has implemented a mandatory commitment of $200.00 per family, a fee which you have already paid at registration.

Here's the good news, all or part of that fundraising commitment can be reimbursed to you by participating in Riversdale fundraising opportunities. Currently the purchase of gift cards is our main source of fundraising and a convenient way to do your grocery shopping.

Between now and December 7th, we will offer Sobeys Gift Cards as a fundraising opportunity. Every $100 purchased in cards is worth $100 from Sobeys (excluding liquor or purchase of other gift cards). Cards are available in convenient denominations of $25, $50, $100 or $250. In order to get your $200 returned, each participating family will earn an 8% rebate of the total amount purchased, provided we sell $10,000 worth of cards (it is lower if we don't meet this min.) Please invite your family members and friends to participate. Each RAC family's rebate is recorded, and rebates are returned to you by mail after the end of the track season in June. Note that once a family has successfully earned its $200 rebate (the amount equal to the obligatory fundraising fee), rebates earned over and above this amount will be split 50/50 with RAC allowing you to further reduce your fees! To summarize, it's simple math: To receive your full $200 rebate from selling Sobeys gift cards, you can sell $2500 worth of gift cards. Theoretically, this is about 3-4 month's worth of groceries (paid for in advance) for the average family of four. Sell these to yourself and you'll have your $200 back, lickety-split. Sell some to family and friends if you don't wish to front the cash and reduce your overall fees. Additional opportunities to sell gift cards will hopefully be available in the new year as well. (You are under no obligation to participate in this current opportunity or any future gift card opportunities).

Email Karen Toews @: kkd@sasktel.net with your orders and I'll set up 2 -3 days at the track where I'll collect the funds in the first week of December. Please include your name/athlete's name, and the amount of Sobeys Gift Cards you wish to order and the denominations you'd like to receive them: $25, $50, $100, etc.

MAKE CHEQUES PAYABLE TO: RIVERSDALE ATHLETICS DEADLINE: MONDAY, DECEMBER 7th

Sobeys Gift Cards will be delivered in the 2nd week of December. Once again, I'll set up at the track a few days so you can pick up your cards.

Thank you! Send questions my way.

Parents Information Night Oct. 29

Parents Information Night Oct. 29

Hello Everyone

So far it has been a very successful track season. We have had some really good results from our cross country runners and base training is getting the rest of our athletes ready for the indoor season which starts on the 2nd of November. The coaches will let the athletes know the details of training times etc.

That being said, it is my experience that sometimes important information doesn't make it home from the track. In order to make sure all our athlete's parents have all the information they need we will be having a Parent's Information Night on October 29 at 7 pm in meeting room 1 at the Saskatoon Field House. This is your chance to meet the coaches and the Board and have any questions answered. We will be covering topics such as fundraising and volunteer opportunities, track etiquette and safety (especially important for rookies),clothing and footwear and meet schedules and travel options. We will also be taking half an hour to hold our annual AGM where we will present our budget for the year and elect our next Board of Directors.

I encourage all parents to come to the meeting. Even if you think you have all the information you need, it is a good time to meet some of the other parents and become a bigger part of the Riversdale Athletics community. I look forward to seeing all of you on Thursday.

Gord Edwards
President, Riversdale Athletics
