PRESS RELEASE: NLS Sports Boosters Continue to Support Through Pandemic

Each year, John Vraa, NLS Athletic Director, completes a Fiscal Year Summary to present to the School Board. The report outlines the generosity shown to our student athletes by our community donors. This year our Boosters have continued to give at an astounding level. Our FY20 donation summary shows that a total of $103,169.48 was donated to the NLS Athletics. Donations were given to both girls’ and boys’ athletics with $50,459.52 for boys and $52,709.96 for girls.  Notable items in FY20 were gymnastics spotting blocks, hitting boards for the tennis courts, and new electronic hitting cages for baseball, softball, and golf in the MS gym.  The boosters also gifted money for equipment and items that supported all teams such as; weight room equipment, strength coaching, HUDL video, scholarships, scoreboard reimbursement, and athletic banquet expenses. Now more than ever, it has become clear the important role that extracurricular activities play in the mental and physical well being of our students. We are so grateful to the donors that continue to support our students in their passions.

During the 2019-2020 school year, the Sports Boosters raised funds by selling sponsorships on schedule posters, game programs, and scoreboards, hosting the annual Wildcat Golf Outing and Silent Auction, as well as gaming revenue through pull tab sales and bingo.
