The MVHS athletic department’s operating fund supports all school sports teams at MVHS. Our football program, however, requires significantly more funding than the school athletic department can allot to it. Therefore, the MVHS football program relies heavily on player family contributions and on fundraising activities to provide necessary additional funding. Financial support from family and community is very important to the quality of our football program.
Parents are asked to pay the costs for spirit packs, team dinners, and individual player transportation costs which is less than a third of the total cost to operate the program each year. We ask for donations through our annual letter writing campaign as well as player participation in other fundraising activities. A large proportion of operating costs are supported through fundraising.

Approval is good until your last child graduates from MVHS. Players seeking transportation to Away Competitions must also turn into your Coach this Permission To Be Driven Form. There is no fee assessed for the summer passing competitions or for the summer strength & conditioning camp as the coaches have volunteered their time to train the players and prepare for a successful season. Out of respect for their commitment to the team, please be on time and attend as many practices as possible.

- Transportation Fee*—$100 Offsets a portion of the cost to transport athletes to athletic competitions. All athletes must travel to and from athletic contests in school-provided transportation so this fee is mandatory for all student athletes. This fee due by August 4, 2017 will be collected upon registration for a sport via your online football sign up and registration
- ASB Membership – $35 All student athletes should join and support the ASB (Associated Student Body) and their fundraising activities. The ASB is a student governing body which promotes school spirit and good citizenship, teaches the privileges and responsibilities of self-government and aids in the direction of school activities. In terms of Athletics, the ASB pays for League Fees, the Cost of Officials and organizes certain operational aspects of game days. Also collected upon football registration or you join at back to school orientation or on the Finance Webstore.
* Sports at MVHS cost money and each player is expected to pay his or her share to cover those direct individual costs at the beginning of the season – August 4, 2017. If a student cannot pay this fee, he/she may contact the Athletic Director.
Other contribution opportunities:
Football Fundraisers – Since Football needs outweigh fair share contributions, Football is not requesting participants to donate to both fair share as well as its annual letter writing campaign. Instead funds received through football fundraisers will go directly to the football program to pay for its team equipment, uniforms, and gear. See Fundraising for further details and past results. Each football player has a personal goal to raise at least $500 for the football program. Donate today by sending a check made out to MVHS Football noting the player you are sponsoring in the memo line or donate online at the Finance Webstore.
