2015 Campaign
Boys' Locker Room Renovation


Two Years Ago, RC Alumni and Friends Came Together to Raise $100,000 to Renovate the Girls' Locker Room.

NOW, IT'S THE BOYS' TURN!

The Boys’ Locker Room is functional and in decent shape, but the layout of the room doesn’t lend itself to an efficient use of the space.  

The major obstacle in creating a useful space is the “shower wall,” an area approximately 10 feet wide and 56 feet long running the length of the room along the outside wall.  That area is no longer used and creates an enormous area of wasted space.

Time For A Needed Make Over!

The comparable area in the Girls’ Locker Room was converted into a a very functional team room where coaches and athletes meet to discuss performance, strategy and teamwork.  
 
That same space on the boys’ side could also very easily convert to team rooms and coaches’ office space.  This project wouldn’t be nearly as complicated as that for the girls, which required replacing a bathroom and removing and replacing all the light fixtures and lockers.    Our proposed boys’ project will involve only basic demolition, construction of new walls, and installation of light fixtures and windows.  These photos depict the space as it currently exists and a basic rendering of how it might look once the renovation is complete.
 
All of the boys’ sports teams and their coaches would benefit from this new space, with office space for coaches and a spacious conference room for team meetings, game film review, etc.  As in the girls’ locker room, a smaller, but updated, shower area would be included in the renovation.
 
We anticipate that we can complete this project easily over the summer of 2015 for an estimated cost of $30,000.
 
 
Please help us with a generous donation to this year's PRIDE of THE LIONS campaign.
 
We respectfully ask you to consider making a gift to this year’s campaign to provide our boy's athletes and students with a soccer field they deserve.
 
We promise it will be a worthwhile investment!

2015 PRIDE OF THE LIONS CAMPAIGN
A few years ago, the RC alumni community established the “Pride of The Lions Fund” to keep the tradition of athletic excellence and Roselle Catholic’s distinctive sporting values alive.

The purpose of the Pride of The Lions Fund is to underwrite the annual athletic budget as well as to make long-deferred improvements to the school’s athletic facilities. From the 2013 campaign, the Fund contributed more than $50,000 to the Renovation of the Girls Locker Room and the Roselle Catholic athletic budget.

For 2015, the campaign’s focus is the enhancement of the Soccer Field.
 
Your gift can be designated in one of three ways:
 
1. Boys' Locker Room Renovation:  a restricted gift to fund the improvements to the soccer field.
 
2. Friends Of:  a gift directed to support the operational costs for an individual sports program.
 
3. Unrestricted:  an unrestricted gift will go where it is needed most.

All contributions to Pride of The Lions Fund are tax deductible.

A gift to the Pride of The Lions Fund helps the school in many ways. By helping to underwrite the athletic budget, and this year, the soccer field remediation, more of the school’s resources can be devoted to Roselle Catholic’s core academic, social, spiritual and moral missions.
 




Many thanks for your help and support!

The lessons learned both academically and in sporting competition have prepared fifty-plus years of RC student-athletes for tremendous success in their careers, communities and family lives.
 
To keep its tradition of athletic excellence and Roselle Catholic’s distinctive sporting values alive, the RC community and alumni have established the “Pride of the Lions Fund.” 
 
The purpose of the Pride of The Lions Fund is to underwrite the annual athletic budget, as well as to make long-deferred improvements to the school’s athletic facilities.  This year, the campaign’s focus is the long overdue and much needed renovation of the Soccer Field, which the school hopes to undertake this spring and summer.
