What We Do

The St. Mary's Ryken Athletics Boosters is an organization created to support the mission of St. Mary's Ryken- commitment to academic excellence and individualized student growth - by helping to provide for the athletic needs of all St. Mary's Ryken students.

The purpose of the St. Mary's Ryken Athletics Boosters are:

 To provide financial support directly to athletic teams through the coordination of team volunteers to concession staffing in exchange for a share of profits made at sporting event concession sales throughout the year.

– To provide spirit centered activities in an effort to bolster morale, and increase attendance at sporting events. These events are directed toward the entire student body of St. Mary's Ryken.

– To support the athletic department through purchase of items aimed to benefit multiple athletic programs (teams) as a whole.

– To promote academic excellence through recognition programs aimed towards teams with the highest percentage of athletes on the honor roll.

A few ways the St. Mary's Ryken Athletics Boosters have recently supported SMR athletics:

Purchased Scoreboard for Softball Field

Purchased Sailboats to form a “fleet"

Stadium Concession Stand

Provided Tailgate cookout dinner prior to each seasons sports award ceremonies

Organized Half time /Half Court Shot competition for students during basketball season ($100 cash prize)

Overhauled the Athletic Trainer Gator

Purchased new score keepers box for gymnasium

The biggest Booster fundraiser is the stadium/lobby concession stands. Every sport team has a team parent (TAG) that will contact parents and students to coordinate/staff the concessions. Teams will receive a percentage of the event profit, while a smaller percentage will be managed by Boosters to build on long term projects. Thank you for your support!
