Oak Lawn Community High School - Athletic Booster Club

MISSON STATEMENT:

“Our mission is to help support an environment in athletics that focuses on leadership, strong work ethic, teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship. As an athletic parent organization, we exist primarily to raise money for all athletic programs and increase parent and community involvement at all our athletic events.”

 

Like all high school athletic departments, our overall success is dependent on three key stakeholders; athletes, coaches, and parents. OLCHS prides itself on hiring highly qualified coaches that make it their top priority to provide a safe, nurturing, and competitive experience for all athletes. Our athletes, through their hard work, represent what is best of our school to the community and beyond. We are always looking for equally dedicated parents that want to help our athletic department grow in what it can provide our athletes and coaches. Most of the work in this organization revolves around increasing paid memberships, apparel sale, running the concession stand, and voting on how to best give back the money raised to our athletic programs.

 

Through your membership and support, we are able to provide additional resources above amounts funded by our school. Through membership fees, concessions, and apparel sales, we have provided:

- Over $20,000 annually for boys and girls sports

- Three $1,000 college scholarships annually

- Conference Championship T-Shirts

- Summer Camps

- Upgrades to Spartan athletic facilities

 

The cost of a Booster Club Membership is only $15 per person. This membership entitles you to FREE ADMISSION to all regularly scheduled home events (with the exception of invitationals and IHSA playoffs/tournaments).
