We are almost to our fundraising goal!

Hello Poway Field Hockey Players and Parents,

Good News! Because we have not reached our fundraising goal, Snap Raise is giving us the opportunity to extend our fundraiser through the weekend, ending on Monday. As of today, we have raised $2,644, just $356 shy of our intended goal of $3000. Lets all reach out one last time to the community, friends, and families to help Poway Field Hockey finish strong.  Remember your 100% tax deductible contribution will be used for much needed equipment and uniforms for both teams.

Click on the Snap! image to donate!!

Don't forget, there are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and right now it is a very tight race. Thank you all again for your fundraising efforts.

Field Hockey week of September 7

Hi Field Hockey Players & Parents,

Our JV worked very hard this week and we saw so much improvement in certain aspects of our playing!  The girls are working very well together and have been applying what they have been learning into drills which is exciting for us to see!  We are looking forward to implementing last week's hard work into our games this week!
Congratulations to Varsity for making it to Day 2 of the Otay Tournament.  That is a huge step for our program from last year and we are excited to see how we compete next weekend.  Both of us coaches agreed that our team dynamic on the field is improving quickly and our fitness has allowed us to play at a faster pace.  Both of these factors will be a huge advantage to us this season.
Overall, we are very proud of both teams and are excited for the upcoming week!!!
~Coach Morgan and Coach Britt

Snap! Fundraiser

Hi  Parents,
We will be kicking off our Snap! Raise fundraiser on Friday.  Snap uses the power of social media with a safe, fun, and interactive approach to fundraising.  All we ask is that each parent/guardian help their athlete gather 20 or more email addresses of their biggest fans. The “Snap 20” sheet below provides examples and areas to write down the addresses. Your contacts are strictly private and protected.
Snap Fact Overview: 
1. Safe and Protected - Snap! Raise is the safest online platform available. All data is private and never redistributed, saved or used when a fundraiser ends. 
2. No Product Sales - athletes sell no product through the platform! Every effort is made through our own custom built program enhancement page and shared via Email, Facebook, Twitter and Text.  
3. Email Strategy - all supporters will receive a receipt for their donation. All gifts are tax deductible and include a personalized thank you from the athlete. There are three reminder emails sent to donors, with an option to unsubscribe. 
4. Reverse Flow- Snap’s platform and process is what makes their platform so successful. It allows for an extensive reach across communities by providing options to connect with multiple donors and their social networks. This helps to maximize our fundraising efforts. Here is an example of the Poway Lacrosse SNAP fundraiser: SNAP Fundraiser 
Please help your daughter gather the 20 email addresses on the attached form and return them to Coach Britt or Coach Morgan at practice on Wednesday evening.  They can also save these contacts in their phone to make input easier on Friday.
The girls will meet the coaches on Friday at 4:15 wearing their practice pennies and will participate in making a short video for the fundraiser.  They will use their cell phones to input the email addresses to the fundraising site.  Emails to the contacts will then be sent out with the short video.  
We hope this will be a successful fundraiser with all participating.  If you have any questions after watching the lacrosse video, please contact Lesley Flud at flud7@san.rr.com.
