Volunteer Opportunities & Descriptions
Keeping the Sports Booster organization effectively running takes a small commitment from lots of our parents. Please take a look at our various committees below and see if there are ways that you can contribute. We welcome, appreciate, and NEED help of all kinds! Maybe there is a way you can help that we haven’t even thought of yet! All of these committees NEED MORE THAN ONE person to run them effectively. Duties can be split among interested members. Don't worry...you will always have guidance and someone to help answer questions and move you in the right direction.
