Welcome back to another great year of Aviator Athletics and our annual membership drive for Sycamore Athletic Boosters.
Our student-athletes benefit from first class facilities and receive the best training, conditioning and equipment because of the financial support of our members and sponsors.
Sycamore facilities have been upgraded tremendously over the last few years and with your support of the Sycamore Athletic Boosters we can continue those improvements across all of Sycamore's athletic venues. Here are just a few of the recently completed projects that allow our student-athletes to shine:
Sycamore High School field turf
Re-surfacing of the High School track
all tennis courts and pavilion at the High School
Re-grading and re-sodding the baseball and softball fields
New weight equipment added and replaced in the Gregory Center
New Gator for the High School medical staff
$40,000 sponsorship of the Jr. High Green Teams for increased participation
Sycamore Athletic Boosters work hand and hand with the Sycamore School District and the Sycamore Athletic Department to provide as much financial support to our student-athletes as possible. With your help and support we can continue to take on big projects like those listed above.
This 20 15 -2016 school year is going to be different from those in the past for Sycamore Athletics. We have new leadership in the hiring of Phil Poggi as our New Sycamore Athletic Director.
I was lucky enough to be part of the Sycamore School Board Interview Committee when they hired Phil and WOW was I impressed. Phil will bring a new level of passion, commitment to excellence and constant presence and engagement with our students, coaches, parents, teachers, administrators, community members, alumni and fans of sycamore that will surely take Sycamore Athletics to new heights.
He truly was the right person for the job and each of you will experience that first hand this year when you meet him.
I have attached a copy of Phil's bio to this letter so you can see
the outstanding accomplishments he has achieved in his young career so far and Sycamore will provide him the platform for his next level of success professionally.
I interviewed Phil and asked him for a few things we should look forward to from him in the next few months and years at Sycamore and here are just some to get excited about:
Make communication a top priority while using technology and social media to our advantage New Sycamore Athletic Website -www.avesathletics.com - check it out
Online forms and data management system for our families
New Sycamore Athletic twitter account - @avesathletics -become a follower

Sycamore Fund-The-Field Payoff Announcement
Sycamore vs. Oak Hills Football Game
just over two years ago, the entire Sycamore community joined together in an effort to improve the athletic facilities at the high school by converting the playing surface from grass to an all-weather, field-turf surface.
TriHealth came on board as Sycamore’s official sports medicine and rehab partner, serving the needs of all our athletes. Their 10-year, $455,000 commitment provided the initial investment for the high school turf renovation.
The Sycamore Athletic Boosters pledged the final $225,000 for completion of the turf project. The Boosters, along with Athletic Director Jim Stoll, created the Fund-the-Field capital campaign. And thanks to the generous financial support of parents, alums, and Sycamore staff, fund raising efforts have been completed well ahead of schedule.
The turf field is now in its second full year of use and has already hosted over 50 soccer, lacrosse and football games … plus daily practices and off-season conditioning. THANK YOU to everyone who supported this important project! It was possible only through the efforts of the entire Sycamore community.
The Mission of this Association is to support participation and
excellence in athletics throughout the
