Toro Headline News
We are committed to keeping our Toro Nation informed. Please check back often for announcements and to share in our successes on the field.
You can pay for summer camp through the BILT Foundation and receive a dollar for dollar tax credit via the AZ Charitable Organization tax Credit. As long as you select $470 to cover the cost of camp plus the charitable donation to the BILT Foundation. Some of you have already taken advantage of this as it is a way to pay for camp for "free" as you get the money back off your state taxes in the form of a tax credit.
Summer camp is the week of July 25 at Joseph City High School for all levels including incoming freshman. The cost is $350. This is a very important week so please do everything possible to make sure your player is available that week. This is a very important time for the team to come together as they start the season. If there is a financial hardship, please contact Wayne Syrek.
Payments can now be made online. You can pay by credit card through PayPal or Pay as Guest via credit card. Please register and pay at your convenience by July 11. Please do not use pay later unless you are paying for camp via the BILT Foundation using the AZ Charitable Organization Tax Credit.
Summer football and weight program for all levels including incoming freshman starts Monday, May 23. The cost is $125. Please get signed up and paid as soon as you can. Bring your waiver to the first day of class.
Mountain View uses Register My Athlete to register all athletes, electronically sign documents, etc. If your athlete has played at Mountain View before, the process is shorter, but is still required each school year. For new athletes and incoming freshman, you must create an account at Register My Athlete to start the required process. Your athlete must be registered by the first official practice day of August 8, 2022, to participate.
We had an amazing turnout for our parent meeting. There was a lot of information presented about spring football, physicals, summer schedules, and football camp. See below for information.
We continue to hear of some booster club confusion. Our school has a wonderful main Mountain View Booster Club now run by football mom Cyndi Bowers and they do a lot of great things for different clubs and teams on campus and have done so for years.
We are the Toro Football Booster Club, Inc a 501c3 non profit with the sole purpose of benefiting the Toro football programs. To further clarify, Toro Football Booster Club does not receive sports program ad revenue, concession revenue, ticket revenue, or fence banner revenue (the banners that go around the football field perimeter fence). This revenue either goes to the main booster club (fence banners and sports program ads) or in the case of concessions; the performing arts booster clubs. We hope this helps some of you because we continue to have people say they thought they were donating to football by doing an ad, buying a banner on the fence, or buying food or game tickets. All of those are great things to help support Mountain View as a whole (and are very much needed) but the football program does not directly benefit from those. Our revenue comes solely from donations, sponsorships, card sales, email fundraisers, yard signs, reserved seats etc. We appreciate your support! Our new sponsors have been awesome in every way! As we have said before-- it takes a lot of money to run a successful top notch program that we can all be proud of.
