Mission:
The Hillsborough Jr. Raiders is an independent recreational youth organization serving the community of Hillsborough, NJ, since 1992. The Jr. Raiders offers organized youth activities in flag and tackle football, cheerleading and track & field for youth in grades Kindergarten through 8th. We are committed to teaching the children the skills they need to have fun playing in a safe environment. Our players learn and apply the principals of sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline and dedication. The Jr. Raiders offers opportunities for boys and girls of all skill levels. Our philosophy is that all children need to get into the game. Everyone plays. You do not learn, improve or have fun by only doing a set minimum playing time or watching from the sidelines. We emphasize the fundamentals and progression of skill development, which will prepare them to participate at higher levels of competition as they progress through the different levels within their sport of choice. The Hillsborough Jr. Raiders provides Hillsborough High School student athletes that are prepared for the next level of competition and education.
Results:
Our cuurent fund raising effort is to fund a new equipment and storage facility. Our old facility is being torn down by the township and we have to find a home for equipment and supplies for over 600 children and growing. We also need funds to build a running track and to improve our practice facilities for football and cheer. We currently practice in a rain detension basin.

I've volunteered and been involved with several youth sports groups over the years with girls and boys. This group goes out of their way to be part of the community, not just a pay for play experience.
