Guilderland sports programs were affected by budget cuts over the last couple of years. As a result we have created a not for profit group, Friends of Guilderland Athletics. The sole purpose of this organization will be to work with the sports booster clubs to raise money to save the sports programs for our children.
For the 2013 - 2014 school year half of the budget has been reinstated and the community will need to raise the other half of the required money to fund the school programs.

Guilderland High School Freshman Sports
The Rodino Family has been fighting Huntington's Disease. This debilitating terminal disease, took the life of their 8 year old daughter, Rachel in 2010. Rick Rodino, husband and father of the family is now in the later stages of the disease and requires 24 hour care from Lori, his wife. Recently their 20 year old son, Anthony and their 19 year old daughter, Gianna have both been diagnosed with the disease. Friends and neighbors are trying to help ease their financial struggles and ensure they can stay in the comfort of their own home during this difficult time.
The Guilderland School Board approved maintaining fifty percent funding for Freshman sports (4th Level Sports) for the 2013-14 school year. Friends of Guilderland Athletics (FOGA), has been organized to assist in securing the other half of the money necessary for these teams to exist. The teams that will require community funding are Football, Boys and Girls Soccer, Boys Basketball, Baseball, and Softball.
