The mission of the Booster Club is to support our girls and make the RHS Girls Soccer program a success. The Booster Club supports all team levels, not just varsity. The Booster Club coordinates volunteers for soccer practices and games, sponsors social events, encourages community outreach, and organizes fundraising activities to provide supplemental financial support for the program above and beyond that provided by the school.

Fundraising

The athletic activity fee paid to RHS provides for a basic program. The money raised through Booster Club fundraising covers expenses and events that the activity fee does not. Examples of Booster Club support in recent years include:

  • Replacing old uniforms, warm-ups, and winter jackets (these are all reused year after year)
  • Team-bonding activities and social events
  • College scholarships
  • Program scholarships

All of the club activities are funded solely by the Booster Club and we do not get any financing from RHS itself. We call on several businesses ourselves to get donations to support our teams.

Meetings

We meet on the second Monday of each month @ 7 p.m. at RHS April through November, (Enter the main doors, walk past the main office, and turn left to meet in the Staff Lunchroom). We discuss finance, team functions and activities, fundraising ideas, goals, and plans for the future of the program at these meetings. The Booster Club serves the whole program, not just one team. So, everyone is encouraged to attend these meetings. Share your thoughts and ideas with us. It’ll only make the program stronger.

We have many volunteer opportunities available to chair and coordinate various activities or events and are also in need of Booster Club shadows for a couple of the board positions as we will have a few openings after this year’s season.  Please go to the Sign Up Genius or reach out.
