BOOSTER CLUB MEMBERSHIP:
Please go to https://threshold.formstack.com/forms/rams_athletic_booster_2023 to join the Riverside Athletic Booster Club. The RABC supports all of our Athletes year-round and wouldn't be able to do it without your help and generous donations. We would love for all families to join the booster club. In addition to your membership, you can add a donation directly to your student's team. You may choose multiple teams and we will evenly divide your donation. Thank you for your support!
ATHLETIC ADMISSION AND SEASON PASSES:
Admission for LCPS athletic contests for the 2023-2024 school year remains $7 per person (under 6 and over 62 years of age are free.) TicketSpicket will remain the desired and easiest form of purchasing tickets for any LCPS game. LCPS season passes are valid for admission for the immediate family in the same home, and grant permission for all home regular season games at Riverside (there also an option for all home and away LCPS games). The passes will be sold through TicketSpicket.com beginning July 15. Season passes are a great savings for families who will attend at least a handful of home games throughout the school year.
How do I purchase a season pass?
Season passes are only available for purchase online through TicketSpicket.com (search Riverside High School Leesburg, VA). Beginning July 15, you’ll see the passes for sale by clicking on “See All Passes.” The purchase options are available at that location. You will attach different family members’ email addresses/ transferring the passes to those family members after purchasing the Season Pass for the Family Member.
One important note at each game—you will still need to claim a ticket for each game you attend. The cost will be $0 since you will have already purchased a season pass.
Passes are entirely digital.

EARN MONEY FOR YOUR TEAM:
Coaches will soon be reaching out to families to solicit help in the concession stand during fall sports. The athletic booster club gives a large financial donation to the team for volunteering each night.
The Riverside Athletic Booster Club has tremendous opportunities to raise money for your team. By selling a sponsorship banner, 100% of the banner profit goes directly to the team of your choosing. If you own a business, work for a business, have a lead with a business, please consider selling this advertising opportunity with banner sponsorship at our athletic venues. The banner sponsorship program is available at https://riversiderams.net/main/bfiles. Make the connection with the business, then connect the business with the athletic office, and we’ll take it from there. This is a great way for teams to fundraise, and for parents to help those teams.
