We are looking forward to another great year for athletics at RJ Reynolds High School! We encourage everyone to attend games, matches, and meets to cheer on our Demon athletes and watch them do what they love. You can also support our athletes by donating to the RJR Legacy campaign, serving as a parent representative for a team, working in the Demon Shop, or taking a shift in the concession stand. For those new to the Demon Family, the Legacy Campaign designates 30% of its proceeds to the Booster Club for operating expenses, and we also raise money through concessions at home football games, Demon Shop revenue, and other fundraisers. All money raised during the year by the Booster Club and Legacy Campaign is used to support our teams. We maintain our fields, purchase new uniforms and protective equipment, provide athletic awards and senior recognition, and fund the RJR Sports Hall of Fame and the All Sports Celebration. We also provide a welcome luncheon for our coaches, communicate and highlight events and athletes through print and social media, and address equipment and maintenance needs as they arise.
We know participation in sports benefits a student’s physical health, but studies have shown it also contributes to their mental, emotional, and social well-being – and that, in turn, impacts their academic success. Your support contributes to the success of our athletic programs, and perhaps more importantly, it provides positive experiences and lasting memories for our student athletes.
Make sure to follow the Demons on social media to stay abreast of all sporting events and news as the Demons take to the field, the court, the mat and the track: RJR Booster Club on Instagram (@rjrboosterclub) and Twitter (@rjrclub); RJR Athletics on Instagram (@rjrathletics) and on Twitter (@rjrathletics); our student section, Reynolds Rowdies on Instagram (@rjr_rowdies) and on Twitter (@rowdiesrjr); and look for the team accounts on Instagram, Twitter and TikTok as well.
Here’s to a great year ahead! Go Demons!
