Meeting minutes from October 11 Meeting:
Do you have, or know, a student athlete playing the winter season? Do you want to support athletes at CRLS? Do you want to meet other caregivers and help build community across the teams and within Cambridge? If so, Zoom in and learn about the Friends of Cambridge Athletics (FOCA) on Tuesday November 8th, 6pm – 7.30pm (Zoom details below).
FOCA is currently looking for team liaisons for the winter sports teams – caregivers or friends of athletes who will support the students and the coaches, and caregivers. The role is a collaboration between the coach and the liaison, requires no minimum time commitment and is a great way to be engaged in the school. For more information, check out the team liaison description.
At the meeting, we will also be discussing how FOCA spends donated money. It’s a great opportunity for you to provide input into the way that athletes are financially supported in the CRLS.
Hope you can join us!

FOCA is a volunteer, parent-led non-profit organization supporting CRLS athletic teams and clubs, through collaboration with the Athletic Director, coaches, PE andHealth staff and other school and city leaders.
FOCA is looking to reengage the Community so that we can support the sports teams more actively, now that the schools have opened up to the Community again. We are looking for interested individuals to help reshape FOCA’s mission, goals and activities. If you have ideas and opinions about ways to support the sports teams, or specific skills that you would like to put to good use (e.g. web-building skills, event management, fundraising, knowledge of businesses in the community), please join us to learn more!
