After School Sport Donation Letter

Athletic donation letter

Dear Parents and Students of Iron Horse Middle School:


Iron Horse Middle School is very proud to be able to offer our Intramural After School Sports Program to students in all three grade levels.  Iron Horse’s intramural sports program is a non-competitive, equal opportunity program created in order to give students the opportunity to play sports, make friends, and become a part of the Iron Horse Middle School Community.  


In the 2017-2018 school year, we plan to offer Cross Country, Dodgeball, Flag Football Passing League, Volleyball, Badminton, and Basketball.  Each season is approximately 6 weeks long.  All practices and games will be held at Iron Horse with the exception of a possible season ending game vs. Pine Valley Middle School.   There are no tryouts or cuts for any after school teams.  Interested students should attend the informational meeting, which is held prior to the sports’ beginning. 


As there are no district funds available for after school sports, the program depends solely on parent donations. The parent donation pays for coaches, necessary equipment, and bus rental.  We do request a one-time donation of $100.00 for participation.  This donation covers students for any and all sports throughout the school year.


We look forward to student participation, and thank you in advance for your support and donation.

IHMS Sports Program Philosophy

The after school sports program at Iron Horse Middle School provides students with an opportunity to participate in a variety of traditional and non-traditional sports. Although games are competitive by nature, the emphasis is on participation.

Participation in sports develops a strong sense of pride, responsibility and school spirit. Student athletes learn and develop self-esteem, commitment, sportsmanship, and respect for oneself, as well as for teammates, competitors, coaches and officials.
