The Booster Club is a volunteer organization comprised of Marist parents who help maintain excellence for all Marist athletic programs through financial support and event sponsorship. The financial support supplements the athletic budget to provide the best equipment and training for our student-athletes. This money is obtained through Booster Club membership, athletic event concession stands sales and fundraisers such as the Golf and Tennis Tournament and Auction. The Booster Club offers numerous membership levels for all to participate and volunteers are always welcome.
During the 2015-2016 school year, approximately 83.5% of Marist's student body participated in athletics. Marist athletic teams have been able to maintain excellence at the regional and state level through the dedication of the coaches, work ethic of the student-athletes, parental support and Booster Club efforts. The money raised through the efforts of the many Booster Club volunteers, helps to enable our student-athletes to have the proper equipment and training facilities and for the coaches to have the resources needed to put forth strong, competitive teams.
