King's Athletic Booster Club

The King's Booster Club is an organization of parents and friends of KHS athletics committed to helping King's High School maintain a winning edge in its athletic programs. All competitive teams - Soccer, football, cross country, volleyball, basketball, track, golf and cheer - benefit from Booster Club dollars.  Membership in the booster club is open to all who wish to support our athletic program and believe in our Mission Statement, and we hope you will join our efforts through membership to help us accomplish our goals. Your fresh ideas, enthusiasm and servant's heart are as valuable to our efforts as your membership fee and the possibilities it provides to King's athletes. Thanks for considering King's Booster Club!

GOALS

The Booster Club's goal is to fulfill its Mission Statement by supporting the King's athletics programs by funding of areas of need that are not able to be fully covered by the school. We've chosen to focus primarily on issues of safety, enhanced competitiveness, team unity and capital improvements. We believe that it is critical that safety equipment be purchased as needed and not relegated to a "wish list". 

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Thanks to the contributions of our members we have been able to renovate the concession area in Mike Martin Gym and provide a new sound system in both Mike Martin Gym and Woolsey Stadium.

We have also partially funded kickoff and post-season parties for the athletes and provided stipends for volunteer coaches.

Due to the success of the annual King's Invitational Golf Tournament which was started in 2001, this major fundraiser for King's Booster Club has become a summer tradition at King's. With the theme "Swing Fore the Knights," this popular tournament offers family fun, scrumptious food, great prizes and a day of camaraderie for golfers of all ages and abilities.

 

2012 summary

The King's Booster Club Golf Tournament was held at Echo Falls Country Club on June 2nd, 2012. The weather cooperated reasonably well, and participants reported a very enjoyable day on the course.

Nick Hardy, Ryan Hoff, Calvin McCutchen and Price Coshow took top honors with a score of 55.  We also were able to award prizes for 2nd and 3rd place teams, as well as a number of other individual golf prizes to those that hit great shots on some of the other contest holes.  We had a lot of fun handing out these awards, as well as a number of different raffle prizes.

We are pleased to announce that with your help, we were able to reach our financial goal for this event.  As you are all aware, things have been very tough (for all of us) these past few years, and the function of the Booster Club at King’s High School has become even more important as we try to avoid making cuts to athletic programs that will impact student athletes and/or their parents or guardians.  We hear stories all the time about programs at other schools that are being greatly reduced in size, or totally eliminated.  We are working hard every month in partnership with King’s Schools to keep the sport and cheer budgets (including Junior High) fully intact.

Thank you to all of our golfers and Hole Sponsors that supported the Tournament! In June of 2013, the King's Booster Club Golf Tournament will once again be held at The Golf Club at Echo Falls.  We have a goal of fielding 100 golfers or more for the 2013 event.  Start working on your foursome now and come join the fun!!

We encouraged all friends of King's Schools to consider inviting family, friends and business associates to this lively event that brings in much-needed money for Booster Club projects. To see examples of improvements Booster Club money has made possible for King's athletes, see Booster home page.
