WELCOME TO THE MCHS BOOSTERS!

The mission of the MCHS Athletic Booster Committee is to support all athletic program needs through a concentrated, collective effort of fundraising and volunteering at events.

 

Our objectives are:

To gather and organize parents representing all sports, to work together toward improvements in our athletic offerings.

To “pool” Booster Committee fundraising efforts to supplement school funding, thereby meeting the commitments of all sports teams where it is determined the need is greatest. 

To develop a well-established and long-term approach to parent/volunteer fundraising that shall benefit the athletic program in future years. 

To build participation in our athletic program and elevate school spirit in the MCHS community.

 

What We Do 

The Booster Committee meets on the second Tuesday of every month. Check back for our 2022-2023 schedule to be posted.

Essentially, we fund the needs of all Morris Catholic athletic programs beyond the set budgeted amount the Administration gives each team every year. We depend on parent volunteers to commit to the improvement of our athletic programs and to foster our shared Crusader Spirit. We host fundraising events where 100% of all proceeds fund athletic needs and to supply concession stands. Additionally, we run 50/50 raffles at sporting events, sell MCHS sports merchandise, and provide gate management. 

 

How Our Families Help

We need a corp of volunteers for each Standing Committee and our Fundraising Activities. This summer the Executive Committee will be hammering out our upcoming budget and fundraising schedule.  At our September Meeting we will have a full discussion on the coming year.  We will be asking each family of student athletes to:

  1. Register your family to receive email updates from the committee. Click here to get started.
  2. Volunteer for a Standing Committee, Team Rep for our Booster Committee, Help with Game Management and Concession sales during Football & Basketball seasons. Click here to choose your volunteer position. 
It’s a great way to meet lots of new families!
 

What Did We Accomplish in 2021-22 / Financial Snapshot:

With more than $86,000 in income from fundraising and the Athletic Fee, we were able to purchase more than $16,000 in “Coaches Requests”, new uniforms for 4 teams costing $9,700, covering operational expenses for teams in excess of $57,000, we end the year with still a few bills to pay and $2,600 left to cover.

 

Some of those “Operational Expenses” included the video/film review program (HUDL) for every sports team, live-streamed games through our You-Tube channel with the help of HUDL equipment, providing championship gear for qualified teams, AND distributing $4,000 in scholarship funds to six (6) outstanding student athletes.   

Please see the link below for our comprehensive list of income & expenses for this year and see where each team benefitted from our efforts

 

Sports and Fan Merchandise Sales

There are essentially two separate merchandise operations.  One is team-based, where coaches work with our vendor (Turn2 Sports) to establish a Team Store for student athletes to purchase items necessary for the season.  

Additionally, we conduct an ongoing sale of spirit wear (sweatshirts, T-shirts and miscellaneous merchandise) in addition to the uniform-related items (such as polo shirts) that every family may purcha
