The Blaine Swimming & Diving Booster Club was formed as a support organization for both the Girls and Boys Swim and Dive Teams. The Booster Club has regular monthly meetings throughout the year, organizes fundraisers and manages the funds raised by the Booster Club. The Booster Club provides the primary source of funds for both teams. All spending from the Booster Club requires approval by two-thirds of the Booster’s Board of Directors at a minimum according to the bylaws. The Board of Directors has six members; president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, boys’ team at-large parent, and girls’ team at-large parent.
How the Booster Club supports the swim and dive teams:
- We hold one major fundraiser each year (Craft Fair).
- We sponsor smaller fundraisers in the form of concession stands at all home swim meets.
- Equipment spending is recommended by the team coaches and approved at Booster Club meeting by the Board of Directors and any parents and student-athletes present.
- When possible, the Booster Club also provides stipends to the athletes and their families for purchasing the annual team suit. The amount of the stipend will vary depending upon the financial status of the Booster Club.
We encourage parents to join us at our meetings and to get involved!
