ATHLETIC BOOSTER CLUB

Several activities are sponsored by the Booster Club throughout the year including a golf outing fundraiser held annually in August. Officers for the Booster Club are elected annually and meetings are typically held on a monthly basis in the Whitko Jr/Sr High School cafeteria.

The Whitko Athletic Booster Club’s mission is to foster an environment that inspires student athletes, coaches, parents and the community to collectively create a positive and spirited atmosphere for all Whitko athletic programs. We are volunteers who wish to serve and lead by example. We support through fundraising, stand behind strong moral character and good sportsmanship, promote a winning school spirit through athletics and encourage attendance at events.

The Whitko Athletic Boosters is a group of parents (current and former but not limited to) of athletes, with the help of the Athletic Director and coaches, whose mission is to enrich the Whitko athletic community by providing financial support for Whitko Athletic programs. This is done by funding areas of need that are not fully covered by the school’s athletic budget. We are dedicated to the continued support of our student athletes and coaching staff. In addition to financial support, our Athletic Booster Club recognizes that participation in athletics benefits everyone and promotes opportunities to build and strengthen relationships, build character and strong work ethics among all involved: the student body, coaches, teaching staff, parents and the community. We strive to support athletic and academic excellence, create a winning school spirit, promote team unity, and maintain the history and tradition of excellence for all student athletes at Whitko.

We need your participation in the Whitko Athletic Booster Club to help support the mission!
