The Weston Boosters Club is a non-profit organization that funds expenses not covered in the athletic budget.The athletic budget is held tightly each year. In fact, the budget has stayed flat for a number of years and in some years, has gone down.In addition, costs are increasing and the athletic department must depend even more on Boosters to help support our teams.
