Athletic Booster Club Newsletter

Happy New Year!  We wanted to get our first 2017 Newsletter out and thank the 215 families who have joined the Strongsville Booster Club for the 2016/17 school year. We have Team Delegates for every sport except one, this link lists the TEAM DELEGATES.  Our goal is to have 80% of all athletic families to join our club.  We are still signing families up and believe we can achieve our goal. 

We're very excited to announce that we've committed to providing an annual Strongsville Athletic Booster Club scholarship this year to be awarded to a 2017 SHS graduating senior.  We are putting the final touches on the requirements of the scholarship and it will be done soon.  Once we've finalized the application process with the HS guidance office, we'll place rules and details on our website as well as emailing this group.  Be sure to share this exciting news with other families that have a college bound Senior.  One very important requirement will be that your family will have to be member of Strongsville Athletic Booster Club.  Encourage your friends to join the Booster Club with these two easy steps (1) register their email and (2) join Boosters by purchasing their membership at: JOIN BOOSTERS TODAY!  

One goal the Booster club has is to increase student and overall attendance to sporting events throughout the year. We would like to encourage all of you to attend some of the many games - Boys and Girls Basketball, Hockey, Boys and Girls Swimming, Wrestling & Gymnastics events before the postseason tournaments/meets.  All the teams are doing a fantastic job and love it when you support them in person. All events schedules are on the SHS ATHLETIC WEBSITE 

As a reminder, the Strongsville Athletic Booster Club is composed of volunteers from the community that are interested in providing support to all the Strongsville City Schools athletic programs. We welcome all additional volunteers and support to help us reach our Athletic Booster club goals. You do not need to have a child in the school to become a member, just a passion to provide needed support to our athletic programs and student athletes.  Encourage your friends to join the Booster Club with these two easy steps (1) register their email and (2) join Boosters by purchasing their membership at: JOIN BOOSTERS TODAY!  Feel free to get in touch with one of our BOARD MEMBERS to learn more about the Strongsville Athletic Booster Club or come to one of our meetings.

Thank you for being a part of Boosters, we appreciate your support!

Sincerely,

Dan Martin 

President, Strongsville Athletic Booster Club
