Mission Statement

The Staples Gridiron Club, which was founded in 1993, is a volunteer organization made up of player’s parents and Staples football supporters working toward helping the Staples Football Program reach its goals.  The Gridiron Club helps support the Football Program by participating in an assortment of fundraising activities.

Items supported by the Gridiron Club

The items listed below are the tip of the iceberg in what we strive to provide to the program.  Our over-riding objective is to give the student athletes and the football program the best experience possible. This includes not only financial support but also personal involvement and giving of our time as volunteers.  Parental involvement is important on all levels, augmenting the Athletic Department’s budget allowing the football program to be competitive on the field with any team in the state.  A winning tradition of football in Westport goes back a very long way. “A Proud Tradition….A Bright Future” are the earmarks of the Staples Football Program!
