It is my pleasure to invite you to join the Spring Hill Athletics Booster Club!
The Spring Hill ABC is an organization that is dedicated to helping the athletes in SHISD to have the best experience possible. We are an ALL SPORTS Booster Club that has been supplementing the needs of our girl and boy athletes and coaches. Each sport has a dedicated budget that coaches can use to purchase equipment, uniforms and other items for our athletes. However, sometimes those budgets just aren’t enough and help is needed to purchase some of the larger ticket items that are necessary for our athletes to compete against some of the best competition in Texas.
Per UIL rules, an athletic booster club is limited in what they can provide for athletes. In general, athletic booster clubs CAN purchase “program” items. In other words, they can help with getting items that would be used by all the kids in a particular sport. However, booster clubs CANNOT purchase items that would be considered an individual gift to an athlete, such as a game-day shirt, goodie bags, etc.
Your membership dues for the Spring Hill ABC helps EVERY sport in the district by providing revenue for the club and allows it to purchase the items mentioned above. Other items that the SHABC has been able to purchase over the last couple of year are:
Scholarships for student-athletes totaling $15,000
Charter bus for the tennis team to the State Tournament in College Station
Tennis ball machine
Mats to cover and protect the track during football season
A portable hydration station that can be moved to accommodate a variety of sports
Equipment bags for boys and girls soccer
Video equipment for boys and girls basketball
Starting blocks for track
Umbrellas for the Golf Team
Reflective vests for Cross Country
Completion of batting cage for Baseball
Signage for Softball locker room
Without membership dues, fundraising activities, and donations, many of these items couldn’t have been purchased by the Athletic Booster Club.
Also, within the Club, we have team parents that work with the head coaches and coordinate with other parents to have activities and give additional support for the kids in our different sports programs. We will always need parent volunteers to keep these spots occupied. All of this allows our kids to have the best, while allowing our coaches to focus on coaching and preparing our kids for competition.
As you can see, it takes all of us to give our kids what they deserve. I am personally asking for your membership into the Spring Hill Athletic Booster Club. Attached is a form that you can fill out and mail to the athletic office. Also, you can come by the office to sign up. Additionally, you can sign up online at www.shpanthernation.com under the Booster Club tab.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with questions or suggestions!!
