Athletic Booster Membership Drive – Membership Passes on Sale Now!
This year, in response to feedback from WTW families, we are offering five levels of WTW Athletic Booster membership. We’re also again offering a lifetime membership option.
Here are a few of the reasons why we strongly encourage you to consider joining the Boosters:
First, most WTW families don’t realize that Fairfax County Public Schools only pays for game officials, coaches/trainers stipends, security, and buses for athletic events. The Booster Club’s goal is to help raise funds for expenses not covered by FCPS – things such as equipment, field maintenance, uniforms and trainer supplies – and ensure that our teams have the equipment and facilities necessary for our student-athletes to participate as safely as possible under the best possible conditions. To do this, the Booster Club needs your support. Memberships provide almost 50% of the annual funds the Booster Club which contributes to support all athletes at Woodson.
Second, a Booster membership makes sense economically since it can save families money over the course of the school year. For example, a student membership at $50 entitles your student to admission at regular season home athletic events at all levels (Varsity, JV & Freshmen), which last year totaled over 200 individual games. A student will recoup her/his membership merely by attending 10 games during the year (e.g., 3 football games, 3 basketball games and 4 of any of the numerous soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, baseball or other regular season games hosted at Woodson this school year). We encourage all Woodson students to purchase a booster pass and attend as many events as possible to cheer on their classmates.
In addition to providing multiple membership options, we are trying to make it easier for you to join the Boosters and to keep track of your Booster pass. This year the passes again will be tags you can keep on your key ring.
You can join the Boosters by purchasing a membership online using PayPal or by downloading a membership application and mailing it and a check to the address listed on the form. You may also bring the form and a check to any of Meet the Coach Nights, Cav Kickoff, the first home football game or Back-to-School Night.
Thank you for supporting the Cavaliers during what we expect will be another exciting year!
