Athletics + Spirit Shop + IPTAY
The Bishop LeBlond Booster Club has a singular focus; to support athletic, team, and performance activities for LB students and staff. Our students, teachers, coaches and administrators represent Bishop LeBlond in an extraordinary manner. Booster Club encourages school and community spirit, recognizes the endeavors and achievements of teams and individuals, and supports clergy, teachers, coaches and administrative staff as they guide our students.
Funds raised by Booster Club volunteerism have purchased supplies and equipment including a new track tent, a rotating schedule of team apparel, display banners and placards celebrating achievement, a digital athletic scouting and analytics system, sound equipment, stage curtains, choir robes, school advertising, game roster covers, audio visual equipment, furniture, school website design, travel expenses for state-bound teams, and building and grounds maintenance. Every athletic team benefits from the Booster Club and most receive their entire uniform from the Booster Club. Uniforms for sports like swimming, golf, and tennis which require a custom fit, are supported by Boosters in other ways.
Booster funds are generated from memberships, concession sales, the Spirit Shop, Trails West beer sales, IPTAY (I Pay Twenty a Year), basketball tournaments, and various other fundraisers. All parents are encouraged to become members, and we love it when grandparents, aunts, uncles and other family members join! Alumni, friends and others who support and promote activities at Bishop LeBlond are all welcome members of the Booster Club! Membership levels are listed below.
The Booster Club hosts an Annual LeBlond Booster Club Kick-Off Dinner in August. The 2017 dinner was Saturday, August 12th at the Knights of Columbus Hall on North 49th Terrace, and it was the best attended event of its kind in several years. Athletic Director Michael Evans introduced our fall sports coaching staff and spoke about the accomplishments of the previous year and his vision of the athletic dynasty LeBlond has the potential to build. In addition to a mouth-watering meal and beer on tap, entertainment was provided, LeBlond spirit items were raffled, and LB logo apparel and merchandise was available.
Similar social events will kick off each sports season, giving Booster Club members the opportunity to network and touch base before games begin.
The Booster Club is responsible for operating the concession stand and entry gate for home events hosted by LB. A VP of Volunteers and Concessions organizes the schedule and coordinates the efforts of two parent representatives from each class. The class reps recruit volunteers to run the concession stand and take fees at the gate, ensuring LeBlond is well represented and keeps fans well fed at our events. Serving at games and events is a great way for families to work on earning some of their required 30 hours of service to the school.
Thank you for your generous donation of time, talent and treasure, which allows the Booster Club to continue its financial support of Bishop LeBlond High School. That support directly alleviates financial obligations that others would have to assume responsibility for. It takes all of us to maintain the high standards and pride that have been long associated with Bishop LeBlond High School.
