CALLING ALL DADS!
This is a great time at Country Day. Our entire athletic program is thriving and the Dads' Club is an integral part of its success. Country Day is one of the few schools where all of the students have an opportunity to participate in athletic programs. From gym class in the first grade to lettering in a high school sport, the Country Day student is involved in athletics. Our athletic programs generate pride, loyalty, and enthusiasm for the School and the student body. This school spirit fostered by athletics is an integral part of our children's experience and makes their years at Country Day meaningful and enjoyable.
The Dads' Club enhances the athletic department with your support and volunteers to work at Country Day athletic events. We sponsor a faculty-parent barbeque, produce a golf tournament, and host various events before and/or after many of the School's athletic contests. Additionally, money raised from Dads' Club donations helps fund specific athletic department needs.
The following are a few examples of how the Dads' Club has been able to assist the athletic department:
A new bus for all of our athletes to travel to events, new volleyball nets, weight room equipment, a new sound system for the gym, basketball training equipment, water hydration system, baseball and softball pitching machine, digital camera equipment to film games and events, new soccer goals, cross country team equipment, official scorers table for basketball and volleyball, outdoor basketball goal and a paint machine to stripe the field for softball, baseball, soccer, and football games. We also have several items on a wish list from our Athletic Director that we would like to acquire to further enhance our athletic program.
We ask that you please support Country Day athletics by becoming a member of the Dads' Club and volunteering at our events. The Country Day experience will be more meaningful for both you and your children.
