Did you know that there are currently 565 Student Athletes in WHS and over 70% of the student body participates in a sports program? I think that is really incredible and a testament to our students, coaches and school. It is my personal privilege to work with you to benefit these programs.
Sports, unfortunately, are not free. Each team needs additional funding beyond the constraints of the Athletic Budget otherwise the sport is cancelled. Boosters’ works very hard, thanks to the generosity of our committed and generous families, to fill the gaps. In the past five years, we have funded $40,000 worth of weight equipment, over $20,000 toward our swimming program, over $3,000 toward our girl’s field hockey program, over $12,000 towards our boys & girl’s lacrosse program, over $4,000 toward our baseball program, over $13,000 toward our football program, over $4,000 toward our boys & girl’s soccer program. Our expenditures have included fees and equipment for wrestling, hockey, gymnastics, basketball, ski team, track & relay. We have funded buses for championship games, team apparel, Championship jackets and the list continues. We work with every one of our 30 sports and we ask each sport to represent itself at our monthly meetings to communicate and let us know what is needed. Virtually every single team has benefited directly, and all have benefited indirectly.
We are also committed to the infrastructure of our facilities which include the two turf fields where over 50% of our athletes play or practice.
Our door is always open and we could certainly use your help! Please just give me a call or send me a note anytime you would like to learn more!
