    Booster Club Question

    Here is a short history. Our club is 9 years old and our booster Club is about 5years old. We have made huge progress in the last 3 years of our booster club thanks to some dedicated people working hard to set policy. We still have some policy to go such as financial and possibly term...

    Booster Club Question

    Hi, There is a topic being brought up at our next Booster club meeting. Some think that when voting, making decisions, etc each FAMILY should get a vote, others think each GYMNAST should get a vote. We have a very small team and there are 3 families with 2-3 gymnasts which is not quite half...

    How do you establish officers for upstart booster club?

    Brand new gym in a new town with only 3 or 4 team girls from the prior gym/prior town. None of us have been involved with a booster club before, coming from a YMCA. Going into a new town that is highly competitive, I'm afraid the coaches are going to have to turn girls away but none lined up...

    Eliminating a Booster Club

    I was wondering if anyone knows of the proper procedures to eliminate a booster club? I am guessing that it would have to be voted on my all members and that the owners of a gym would have no say in this...is this true? Or, can owners of a gym decide to eliminate the booster club themselves? amom

    Parents Another Booster Club Question

    It seems as though most 501(c)(3) non-profit Booster Clubs out there are using fundraising to benefit only the families who are members of the Booster Club. Meaning, you earn points by volunteering, which translates into dollars in your daughters individual account to cover her portion of...

    Does anybody know if our Booster Club can become 301c in Washington State? And if so, can they ask for grants from grantors? Or is that illegal?

    Parents Booster Clubs

    How does the booster club at your gym work??? Our gym has a booster club and we are always looking for more effective ways to fundraise. It's hard to keep going to the same people over and over "now this week we are selling....." That could make you feel like an Amway person. Not to mention that...
