Hosting a Sports Fair

May 8, 2017

Student-athletes at a Massachusetts high school are sharing their sports with elementary and middle school students in their community. The Fitchburg Red Raider Sports Fair is a student-led event in which the Fitchburg High School Student Athlete Leadership Council will host sports stations to let younger students try out several sports.

“Our student-athletes will run the stations,” Ray Cosenza, Fitchburg High School Athletic Director, told the Sentinel & Enterprise. “I am sure some of our high school coaches will be in attendance, however this is a student-athlete-led event. They will be handling the sport stations and giving instruction. This is their idea and their event. Other Fitchburg High School student volunteers will be on board to help run the event as well.”

Along with trying out different sports, participants will receive raffle tickets to win several prizes. The main goal, though, is to introduce future high school students to all of the sports that are offered at the high school—including basketball, baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, track and field, soccer, volleyball, golf, and football.

“It is fantastic that our student-athletes want to promote sports for our younger students in the district,” Cosenza told the Sentinel & Enterprise. “The Student Athlete Leadership Council is an outstanding group of young people who want to give back to their community, while at the same time promote Fitchburg High School and our athletic department.”
