Weight Room Upgrade! Exciting News!
by Simsbury Gridiron Club posted 04/19/2014

Simsbury High School Weight Room Upgrade Project Has Begun!  Please Read Below For More Info.  You can be a part of this exciting cause by clicking on the button on the upper right of this page!

Simsbury Gridiron Club
PO Box 324, Simsbury, CT  06070

“The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual”, V. Lombardi.

Dear Friends, Patrons, and Families,

The fall sports seasons have come to a conclusion, but the hard work continues for Simsbury High School athletes and coaches.  Year round conditioning, so important for a successful season in any sport, is in full swing.  As supporters of Simsbury athletics, our attention is focused on this area.

We are writing to ask for your support for a Special Capital Project designed to upgrade and equip the existing strength and fitness area at Simsbury High School. 

The current weight racks, furnished and funded by Simsbury Gridiron over 10 years ago, are worn out, bent, and generally insufficient for the needs of a successful athletics program.  An updated strength facility is an essential component of personal improvement, team-building and pride for all student athletes. This unique effort is being undertaken with the full knowledge and cooperation of Athletic Director Dane Street and the Physical Education staff.

The Simsbury Gridiron Club, in a partnership with Simsbury High School and the Simsbury High School Athletic Department, has set an ambitious, but reasonable fund raising goal of $35,000.  This amount will ensure that our student-athletes have the strength and fitness training equipment needed for success in their various sports. Your donation, of any amount, will help us achieve this goal, and will be deeply appreciated by past, current and future students participating in many of the various sports offered at Simsbury High.  Meeting our goal will allow us to consolidate our strength program under Assistant Coach and Certified Fitness Trainer, Evan Gross, and will minimize the need for students to train in costly outside locations.  All gifts will be recognized when the facility is completed.  Gifts are tax deductible as Simsbury Gridiron is a 501(c)3 organization (Federal I.D. number 06-1613244).  Please consider a donation via our website,, or by mail to Simsbury Gridiron, PO Box 324, Simsbury, CT, 06070 (please see attached donation form available with this letter). Our fundraising campaign concludes on April 15, 2014. Our goal for completing the new strength and conditioning facility is June 15, 2014.

Thank you for your consideration.
