NHSA Annual Fundraiser
Nordonia Soccer Parents,
Please review the following information on our annual fundraiser. Our annual fundraiser date/time has been set for 7-9pm on February 22nd, 2020 at Scoreboards. Tickets for the event are $25 per ticket and will be able to be purchased in advance (see below and with a paper ticket) and in-person the day of the event. Admission will include pizza, wings, draft beer, wine, and many raffle opportunities. This has been a fun night in the past and we expect the same this year!
The purpose of our annual fundraiser is two-fold: 1) Provide training, experiences, and equipment to our players and our growing organization, and 2) Keep costs as low as possible. This year, for example, fundraising proceeds went towards the purchase of 2 sets of goals, a training net, shirts for tournament participants, field maintenance equipment/paint, and various other fixed expenses. We also added an additional hour of training at Ambassador’s Rothenbuhler Cheesemaker’s Arena for 22 weeks, which cost the organization over $11,000. We do these things because we believe that the investment in the equipment and training time makes our organization stronger and provides a better experience for our players, and a successful annual fundraiser is key to doing exactly that.
NHSA is suggesting that each player be responsible for selling a minimum of 2 tickets ($50 total value) or collect $50 worth of donations that can be used in a basket that will be raffled off at the fundraiser. Our preference is to have each player sell 2 tickets to get more people to the fundraiser event, but we realize that may not be possible (due to financial or schedule constraints), which is why we will gladly accept donations to be included in a raffle basket. Fundraising is not our favorite activity, and we realize that asking friends or family members to purchase tickets or donate to our cause may be uncomfortable but having everyone’s participation in this event is key.
We are a family, a soccer family, so getting to know each other on and off the field will strengthen our family, create shared ownership, and establish a bond that hopefully grows through our children’s eventual high school - and beyond! - careers. Thank you so much for everyone’s support and I look forward to this event and the opportunities this event will provide our program!

NHSA Skills Development
"Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come." (Dwayne Johnson)
In an effort to continue to help our young players grow, we are introducing a Skills Development program to challenge your children to become better players. Although our team of volunteers try their best to provide our players the tools to gain a solid grasp of the game, to become great, the players have to take ownership of their love of the game. This initiative will hopefully drive that thought process and give those players that are eager to push their limits of the game an opportunity for direction while challenging them.
