The Booster Club had a great first meeting this week. Thank you to all who attended!
We are still looking for some team reps.
This is a new position in our organizational structure. It’s part of our overall efforts to strengthen the Booster Club’s support of South’s athletes, teams, coaches and Athletic Department. Our goal is to have a Rep for each team, at all levels, who coordinates support for their student’s team and provides a connection to the larger Athletic community through the Booster Club.
The Team Rep will share team requests, provide communication, feedback and support broader initiatives that help all South teams and the Athletic program. This coordination will allow the Boosters to provide consistent support to all our teams, student-athletes and coaches.
Team Reps must be the parent/guardian of an athlete on the team they representing. If you are interested in becoming a Team Rep, please be in touch with your student’s coach.

Team Rep Responsibilities
Provide Team Support – *As directed by the Coach*
Lead and or coordinate volunteers to:
- Support the team coach with strengthening team spirit (e.g., team dinners, senior recognition events, community service activities)
- Support the coach on fundraising initiatives
- Build community among team parents and fans at all team levels (e.g., distribute rosters, email lists, coordinate family meet & greets)
- Promote news about the team to the Booster Club
- Work with coaching staff to understand needs of the team and appropriate resources for funding (team fundraising vs. Booster Club)
Serve as Team Rep to the Booster Club
- Represent their child’s team at monthly Booster Club meetings
- Share updates, spirit-building ideas with other teams through Booster Club meetings
- Provide input on Booster Club activities and participate and promote Booster Club fundraising efforts back to individual team
- Vote on funding requests to the Booster Club (to come)
- Serve as a point person for funding requests to the Booster Club (to come)
As mentioned above, the role of the Team Rep is to coordinate support for a team, not to do it all on their own. We also appreciate parent input/feedback on this position as we grow and evolve our program.
We look forward to working with you!
In addition to Team Reps, the Booster Club is looking for all kinds of general volunteers–from selling Spirit Wear and helping plan events to Concession Stand sales and general help.
Many hands make light work. Meet fellow South athletics parents and guardians. Help us promote community and school spirit!

Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2022,
We hope you will be able to join the counseling department for a webinar on how counselors support students and their families through the logistics of applying to college and other post-secondary plans students may be considering. Counselors will walk you through the procedures students will follow and answer any questions you might have. This program is a complement to the senior guidance seminars counselors will be leading for students in the class of 2022 during next week’s WIN blocks.
The information for joining next Thursday’s webinar can be found below. Additionally, we invite you to complete this google form to share your priorities for topics you would like to learn about as well as any questions you have and would like to see answered. Participants will also be able to submit questions during the webinar and we will make every effort to answer all questions live (as time allows). We look forward to seeing you next Thursday and working with you throughout this exciting year.
