The DSHA Parent Athletic Association (PAA) provides both financial and moral support toward maintaining and improving DSHA athletics. PAA-funded projects include the athletic trainer, strength and conditioning coach, team warm-ups, coaches’ clinics, equipment requests and other items requested by coaches. These are available to all girls who participate in athletics – on every team, at every level.
Since 1993, the PAA has sponsored the Annual Dasher Golf Outing Dinner and Auction, the only major fundraiser for DSHA athletics. With 63% of DSHA students participating in athletics, the PAA Golf Outing provides much-needed funding that sustains our girls as they develop their skills on one of 38 teams fielded in 15 different sports.
The Dasher Golf Outing offers up to 144 golfers a full day of activities, including lunch, an 18-hole tournament, contests, cocktails, dinner and auction. Non-golfers are welcome to join the fun for dinner and the auction at a reduced price. In 2017, over 200 people attended the dinner and auction and the outing raised over $50,000 in support of DSHA athletics.
