Skyline Gridiron Club (SGC) was founded in 2001 by alumni parents of the Skyline High School Football program, as a community organization 501C3.
Our mission is to establish, cultivate and maintain the highest level of relationships with and between the Spartan Football Program of Sammamish, Washington and it various constituencies.
We promote an awareness and appreciation of the football program which results in an increase of resources to invest and enhance the growth and development of the players, coaches and seasons of play.
Whether attending Friday night games or off season activities, Spartan Fans are always welcomed to get involved with Skyline Gridiron Club.
Why is SGC here?
Sports assist students with developing skills that they will use in life and involvement in athletics provides opportunities that enhance their high school experience and develop school pride.
Other organizations, such as Issaquah School District, ASB, Booster Club, stretch their resources to support academic and other extra-curricular activities.
Skyline Gridiron Club dedicates itself solely to support the Skyline High School Spartan Football Program. We assist wherever needed which allows the Head Coach and his staff more time with the student athletes.
Why is SGC different?
Management of SGC is done by a voluntary Board of Directors comprised of alumni parents or players. Remembering that the program belongs to the coaches and players, this helps decisions remain focused and balanced for the entire program, rather than any one element. Other programs struggle with a structure that allows for current parents to involve themselves in the business of the organization, which can result in a lack of consistency in activities and operations.
Our motto is “Attitude, Work Ethic and Tradition Never Graduate”.
