JBHS BOOSTER CLUB

Board of Directors Mission Statement

 

The James Bowie High School Swimming and Diving Booster Club exists to enrich each student-athlete’s involvement in his or her swimming, diving, and extracurricular activities.  We are a registered (501 c3) non-profit organization comprising current-year swimmers and divers, parents and/or guardians of current-year swimmers and divers, and other community members who have an interest in improving and assisting the James Bowie High School Swimming and Diving Team.

      

Our primary purpose is raising funds to support the swimming and diving program, and to promote both team and school spirit. This is accomplished through Booster Club membership dues, sponsorships, fundraising events and activities throughout the school year

 

A significant responsibility of the Board is determining arising needs of the Team and determining possible ways to satisfy those needs. We also serve as liaison between the swim boosters and the Coach, schedule and run Booster Club meetings, maintain forms, financial records, scholarship awards, and handle team correspondence.
