RHS Athletics Donors Choose Project


The items from this project will help our student-athletes compete at a higher level. Due to the decrease in funding for athletics, and growing concern for player safety, these items will be pivotal in the development of skills for our athletes. Goalie gear for soccer and catcher gear for baseball and softball, to provide protection in sports where implements movement at high rates of speed. Appropriate netting for tennis is needed so regulation games can be played on campus. Items denoted for women's field hockey are also needed to ensure the eye safety of our women. Riverside would like to have a complete matching usable set of safety equipment for our women's team. 

Currently, all donations will be matched dollar for dollar by the Dick's Sporting Goods Foundation Sports Matter Program.

Please click here to go to Donors Choose for more info and to donate.
