Father Ryan Athletic Association

The Father Ryan Athletic Association provides our parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends the opportunity to be involved in any or all Irish athletics, as volunteers, as financial supporters and as fans. A gift of $100 or more to the Father Ryan Annual Fund can introduce you to numerous ways to be a part of the athletic heritage of Father Ryan while supporting the overall programs of the school—athletics, the arts, academics, faith and service.


To build community and financial support for all athletic teams, everyone who makes an unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund in the amount of $100 or more is offered membership in the Father Ryan Athletic Association. Remember, every gift to the Annual Fund is 100% tax-deductible for you.

As a member, you receive:
  • Free tailgate at football games
  • A one-time 10% discount at the Spirit Store
  • Subscription to the monthly FRAA Newsletter
The Association is administered through Father Ryan’s Athletics Department, led by our Athletics Director and coordinated with a small leadership group of committee members, made up of Father Ryan parents.

Father Ryan is committed to meeting the needs of ALL of our athletic teams through our operating budget. By encouraging you to give to the Annual Fund, or to enhance your giving by adding your previous athletic donations to your current Annual Fund gift, we can ensure that ALL sports receive the funding they need.
