According to head coach Seija Stratton, the girls’ ultimate team went door-to-door throughout Park selling coupon books May 5 and May 27 to raise money for the team.

“We sold coupon books with I think 10 coupons that are good for a year, and they cost $20,” Stratton said. “They went around neighborhoods trying to sell these coupon books.”

Senior captain Esther Gendler said all coupons have unlimited uses. The team receives $10 for every $20 they raise.

According to Gendler, the team uses fundraising to supplement costs for players because it does not receive school funding.

“Since we’re a club team, we don’t get any school money, which is not ideal, so the money we raise goes to going to out of state tournaments and covering costs of players who can’t necessarily afford it or afford jerseys because we want everyone to be able to play,” Gendler said.

Stratton said she enjoyed seeing enthusiasm about the fundraiser from the team.

“The players seemed very excited about raising money for their team and I really appreciate that,” Stratton said.

Gendler said totals have not been calculated but she hopes the fundraiser has as much success as in previous years.

“I don’t think we’ve totaled it yet but the last time we did it we did really well. Hopefully once we total the numbers it’ll be a good year,” Gendler said.
