Teammates for Life

TEAMMATES FOR LIFE

Teammates For Life was formally created in 2014 to carry on the spirit of brotherhood to extend beyond the athletes playing years at Irvine High School. TFL is a 501(c)3 organization for alumni, parents and guardians of former football players, coaches and volunteers to support the Irvine Football program. We want each player to form bonds with teammates that carry into a player’s adult life knowing that he has a support group to assist when times are difficult.

The goal of Teammates For Life is to support, raise funds, and help with the rising costs of running a successful high school football program. The purpose of TFL is to organize, foster, promote, and advance the sport of high school football in a supervised, instructional and competitive manner. In addition, TFL will provide funds for scholarships and financial aid to the extent that funds are available.  Specifically the funds generated will be used categorically in the following ways:

  1. Scholarships – A portion of funds raised by the TFL foundation will be used to support the Teammates for Life Scholarship which will be awarded to a graduating senior to use towards his further education.
  2. Financial Aid – Funds will be made available to support those families that have difficulty contributing to the program toward the expenses of a player.
  3. History – A portion of the funds raised will be used for the purpose of maintaining the record boards, all-league pictures, team plaques and other items that display the history of the Irvine Football program.
  4. Facilities Improvement – The locker room, weight room and football offices are a source of pride for alumni football players.  Funds from the TFL Foundation will assist with the maintenance and upgrading of these areas as seen fit by the coaching staff.
  5. Capital Expenditures – A portion of funds will be used to purchase items that are outside the scope of the annual football budget.  Such items might include field equipment, video equipment and/or computer scouting equipment.

Teammates For Life is a separate organization from the Irvine Football Pigskin organization. Going forward, the TFL logo will be used expressly for this organization. TFL is an alumnus-driven organization whose members do not have children in the football program and is a non-profit organization that is funded by membership fees and other fundraising events.
