About Us

 

Founded in 1990 by parents of Mohawk athletes who were concerned that without outside financial help, athletics at Mohawk would cease to exist.  The original group of parents came up with creative fundraising options including an Annual Funfest and Meadow Muffin Derby to raise necessary funds to allow Athletic programming at Mohawk to continue.

 

Today’s MAA

 

The MAA continues this mission nearly 25 years later.  Our organization needs new members! You can join by attending a meeting and paying the annual dues of $1—this amount is the same as it was back in 1990! Meetings are the first Monday of each month and are held in Room 171(Mr. Conlon’s room in the Middle School wing) If you don’t want to commit to meetings every month, that’s okay! There are many additional ways to participate.  Many have wondered why the MAA needs to raise money, when there is already a users’ fee in place.  The users’ fee is allocated for coaches’ salaries, transportation expenses, officials’ fees and some equipments costs.  Nearly $20,000 is spent annually by the MAA to purchase uniforms, equipment and other incidentals that are not paid from the school budget.

 

 

Mohawk Athletic Association Continues its Mission of Support for Athletics at Mohawk Trail Regional High and Middle Schools.

The Mohawk Athletic Association (MAA) at its recent meeting on February 23rd approved $27,900 in purchases based on recommendations from Athletic Director Fred Redeker and Mohawk Sport Coaches for uniforms, equipment and annual turf field maintenance services.

Items approved included:

 

• 40 new softball uniforms for Varsity and JV softball.

• 40 new football uniforms for Varsity and JV football.

• Materials for the Baseball Diamond Renovation project.

• Baseball Equipment, (Hitting Mat, Tees and a Bat).

• Athletic Field Fertilization Annual Program covering all Turf Fields at the School.

 

At the conclusion of the meeting, Athletic Director Fred Redeker thanked the all-volunteer organization for its continued support of the school's student athletes and went on to state:

 

“The efforts of the MAA with fundraising and directing those donations to Mohawk Athletics make a significant difference in the ability of numerous sports to fully involve athletes and compete throughout the school year."

 

MAA thru fundraising by its volunteer efforts fills a critical gap. Athletic users’ fees are allocated for coaches’ salaries, transportation expenses, officials’ fees and some equipment costs. Funds from donations such as those recently approved are expended to purchase uniforms, field/sports equipment and other incidentals that are not paid from the school district’s annual budget.
