ACTIVITIES & ORGANIZATIONS
Neligh-Oakdale Athletic Booster Club
The Booster Club is a volunteer organization and our main goal is to support our Athletic programs, coaches and our student athletes. We strive to recognize the achievements of the teams as well as individual athletes. With our support we have been able to help contribute financially to help programs purchase things they need and want for both practices and competitions.
Who is a part of The Booster Club
This organization is ran by parents of all 7-12 Athletes. If your student is in 7-12 grade and participates in any sport you are considered a member. As an active member we request for you to pay an annual membership fee to help maintain and strengthen our Club. This year with those dues collected last year along with the area business’s donations we were able to give every HS sport $500 and every JH sport $250 for the coaching staff to use towards the equipment, supplies, training items or any other purchases they need to help maintain the growth of these programs.
What else we do
Throughout the year we hold roughly 3-4 meetings, we host the Back to School BBQ for Athletes and their families to kick off the new school year, we help run festivities over the week of Homecoming for the student body, we hold several fundraisers throughout the year like tailgates at home events, the football commission stand, split the pot, Warrior Wear orders, purchase Team banners to be displayed at our field and in our gym and we also offer a scholarship at the end of the year for graduating senior athletes.
How to get involved
We are always looking for volunteers and active members to be more involved! As some parents graduate their last child we need more parents to step in and fill positions and roles that some of them have handled for several years. So if you’re a planner and like to lead or co-lead some of these events or if volunteering your time and working shifts is more up your ally we need more of both we will never turn away your help and always appreciate you offering rather than us having to make a bunch of phone calls, we typically have sign up sheets for events at the meetings so coming and being active at our meetings is always a great way to get started. So with that said if you have an student in 7-12th grade that plans to go out for any sport this year we are inviting you to our Back to School BBQ and meeting in the park on Thursday August 19th at 6:00 we will start with burgers, hotdogs, chips and a dessert followed with the meeting. Our big items of discussion will be preparing for tailgates, football concessions stand shifts, Homecoming festivities and we welcome your input on ways we can continue to be a successful Club.
