Midland Athletic Booster Club
All parents of Midland athletes in grades 6-12 who participate in school sponsored sports are considered Booster Club members. The Booster club raises money, mainly through the home food stands, that purchases ALL middle school and high school sports uniforms as well as many other items needed by the coaching staff.
The concession stand at home athletic events is run by parent volunteers. The profit from the concession stand is used to purchase uniforms, equipment that the AD can't purchase, and supplies to support our student athletes (posters and stuff for Homecoming mostly at this time). If other groups want to sell food at a home event or use Booster equipment at a event, please have that sponsor attend a meeting and ask us. It is not OK for a group to just assume they can hold a supper during a basketball game. We plan inventory and schedule our workers accordingly. We can't give up every Friday or Saturday quad basketball date to other groups. I can't remember when we have ever told any group they could not sell food, but it is only right that the sponsor and students learn that one must ask and be given permission to do something of this nature.
Athletic Booster meetings are scheduled the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30PM usually at the high school. All parents of athletes in grades 6-12 welcome and encouraged to attend!
There are a lot of ways you can help the boosters - attending meetings and giving ideas, organizing food stand workers, inventorying food stand supplies, picking up food stand supplies at Sam's Club, inventorying/ordering beverages, coordinating apparel orders, etc. If you can help in one of these other ways it can replace food stand worker assignments. Please let an officer know how you can help them out.
