Genoa athletes head door-to-door for support

  Get ready to see a wave of maroon and gray as Genoa High School athletes take to the streets to rally boosters.

  Freshmen, sophomore and junior athletes involved in junior varsity and varsity sports this school year will be knocking on residential and business doors April 25, as part of the Genoa Athletic Boosters’ Annual Membership Drive. 

You’ll know them. They’ll be dressed in lettermen jackets, uniforms and warm ups that all scream Genoa Comets.

  Last year, there were 24 groups that canvassed the area. About the same is expected this year. Each group has a designated neighborhood, gets some public speaking tips and heads out to collect memberships.

 “The people should know they’re coming. It seems to be a big event because they have done it forever,” said Laura Sheahan, president of the boosters.

 The teams of three to six students will stop to chat with residents and hope to sign them up on the spot. Sheahan stresses students will speak to residents at the door.

“They are not allowed to go inside the house,” she said.

 Sheahan admits some of the kids are better salesmen than others.

“There were some that went out last year and came back with 20. And there were others who only got 3,” she said.

 Still, everybody is required to help and every bit matters in keeping the organization running smoothly.  Registration comes in three levels: $15 gray membership for seniors; $25 maroon membership and $50 Comet membership.  The membership basically shows support for the Genoa athletic teams, Sheahan said. Signing up does not require the residents to take on any other responsibilities.

  But there are plenty of chances to get involved if people wish to do so.  Friends and family who wish to volunteer during the season at concession stands, ticket booths and other events have opportunities to do so. They can earn a free season sports pass if they sign up to cover five events, Sheahan explained.

 April 25 was selected for the membership roundup in cooperation with the athletic department.  “We worked to

 

make sure there were no sporting events that conflicted with that night,” Sheahan said.
