|Yellow Springs Athletic Booster Club Mission Statement
The Yellow Springs Athletic Booster Club’s mission is to foster an environment that inspires student-athletes, coaches, parents, and the community to create a positive and spirited atmosphere for all YS athletic programs. The Booster Club acts to broaden the involvement of students, students' families, and the school, through support for all YS Athletic programs.
The Booster Club is a group of parents, with help from the Athletic Department, whose mission is to enrich the Yellow Springs School’s athletic community by providing financial support, done mostly by funding areas of need that are not fully covered by the school/athletic department. We are dedicated to the continued support of our student-athletes and coaching staff. In addition to financial support, our Athletic Booster Club recognizes that participation in high school athletics benefits everyone and promotes opportunities to build and strengthen relationships among all involved: the student body, coaches, teaching staff, parents, and the community. We strive to support athletic and academic excellence, create a winning school spirit, promote team unity, and maintain the history and tradition of excellence for all student-athletes at Yellow Springs High School. Along with the Yellow Springs Alumni Association, the Booster Club also strives to recognize the athletic excellence and accomplishments of our past Yellow Springs graduates through induction into the YS Athletic Hall of Fame. The YS Booster Club also supports the individual athletic team fundraisers by recording, holding, and distributing funds to purchase new uniforms, attend team camps, and to support other team needs.
Membership in the YS Booster Club includes a season pass to all home athletic events, but more importantly, your membership is a way to support YS student-athletes. Through volunteering for fundraising events, the money is raised to support the need for equipment, gear, coaching fees, senior recognition, and other items beyond what is covered by the school’s athletic budget.
All varsity teams – Cross Country, Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Cheer, Bowling, Swimming, Tennis, Baseball, Softball, and Track & Field – benefit from Booster Club dollars. Booster members’ fresh ideas, enthusiasm, and servant hearts are valuable to our efforts.
