Sundevil Athletics Organization
The mission of the Sundevil Athletics Organization is to support and promote Sandia Preparatory School's athletic programs by encouraging parent involvement, promoting school spirit and providing financial resources. Funds generated by the SAO shall be directed toward the advancement of Sundevil athletics and/or to Sandia Prep School and its charities.
SAO meetings are held the first Thursday of every month at 1:30 p.m. in the Dick Heath Board Room (upper level of the Russell Student Center). All parents are welcome.
Parents are an integral part of each team having a great season. Each sport is unique and so is the parental involvement. The majority of our teams need a team parent. The team parent will help coordinate things such as: snacks, announcers, line judges, ticket takers, concession helpers, pasta parties and end of season parties. If you would like to help with team parent coordination let your coach know.
At Sandia Prep school spirit can be demonstrated in many ways.
The SAO supports and encourages school spirit by providing apparel items for sale. Did you know that wearing Sandia Prep apparel is the easiest way to get in to home games for free?
During Spirit Week our 6th graders are given their Lion and Unicorn shirts as a gift from the SAO. We want to encourage their school spirit and help them to enjoy their first Spirit Week as a Lion or a Unicorn.
Team parents have found many ways to encourage team spirit. You may find them decorating a bulletin board in the gym, providing snacks for home games, or meals for away games.
Show your Sundevil spirit by buying and wearing Sandia Prep apparel.
Sandia Prep apparel is also available in the Supply Store. Teams and Team Parents wanting to bulk order sports specific apparel should contact Teresa Rael, SAO Apparel Chair (email@example.com or 463-6136) for discounted pricing.
Letter jackets are now available ONLY through Neff at the following website: http://www.neffco.com/
Financial Support of the SAO toward the Sandia Preparatory School Athletics Program comes through three primary categories: membership dues, donations, and sales from concessions and apparel. The bulk of funds is generated through concessions. The SAO encourages every team to volunteer in concessions. The more games we cover the more we can give.
Membership: Parents, students, and others having an interest in the SPS Athletics Program are welcome to support Prep Athletics through a yearly family membership of $25. Membership forms will be sent out in the Schedules mailing and also available at the Parent of Athletes Meeting at the start of school.
