Seahawks football fundraisers sponsors two young aspiring athletes

The Sooke Seahawk organization has provided sponsorship to two of their players, thanks to fundraising efforts.

Yes

The Sooke Seahawks organization has recently provided sponsorship to a couple of their players, funds that include covering the seasonal cost, cleats, mouth guards and full coverage on clinics. The funds came from Seahawk fundraising activities, such as the most recent steel metal drive.

According to equipment manager Steve Mullen, these sponsorship will provide focus and purpose to the young players, channeling their energy productively. It gets kids away from the TV — and electronic screen in general, he says.

Andy Carrier, coach for the Atoms Seahawks, adds that the Victoria league has been “incredibly kind and shown much grace” in supporting the Sooke players.

And the Seahawks have been busy fundraising themselves, the proceeds of which have gone to subsidizing the costs to players. The Sooke clinics, for example, are one-third the cost of attending a similar clinic in Victoria.

“We’ve subsidized every clinic we have had this year,” said Carrier.
