Woodside High School Girls Basketball Program
When you support the ABO, you support all athletes and all sports, and pay for uniforms and equipment for Girls Basketball.
The family donation requested by the coaches is $135
Your direct donation will keep the teams focused on Basketball, instead of fundraising for this year. Your money goes directly to the team to cover expenses not paid for by the school district.
You do not have to donate in order to play and any amount is appreciated--The most important thing is to participate by giving something!
Please, first REGISTER
This suggested donation is used to help the team with:
Senior Night / Tourn. Fees
Athletic Booster Donation (suggested)
You also provide stipends for JV and assistant coaches and a strength and conditioning coach because the school and the district are not able to cover them this year. There are more details about what you help the ABO pay for below.

At Woodside High School, all of our athletes have access year round to a qualified trainer who works as the Strength and Conditioning Coach. He helps the student athletes prepare for their upcoming season, maintain their strength and flexibility during the season and recover from injuries when they happen. With your donations and corporate sponsorships, we have been able to fund this position fully at an annual cost of over $17,000.
Having JV and assistant coaches helps teams support more athletes and fosters junior athletes. Athletes get specialized attention to learns at different levels. Usually the school helps pay for JV and assistant coaches with rent money paid by summer camps. Because of the on campus construction during the past two summers, the school hasn’t received enough money to cover these stipends. With your help we have been able to cover the $15,000 gap and keep these sports programs thriving and developing younger athletes.
All coaches at Woodside also have video analysis software and equipment available. This tool is being used by sports as diverse as football and waterpolo. Coaches can review practices and games so they can give the best possible feedback and they know what the athletes most need to develop. We are very proud that we can provide our athletes with this state of the art software so they can have the best possible athletic experience while at Woodside. The annual cost of this software is $3500.
For Girl’s Basketball, the ABO has paid for:
HUDL Camera and software - October 2018 - $1250
Uniforms - September 2017 - $1850
Slip mats - September 2016 - $480
THE ABO FUNDING PROCESS
The ABO works with our coaches and the Athletic Director (AD) to consider the team’s proposals, help to raise money from parents that goes directly to the team (Direct Donations), and to allocate additional funds via ABO Grants to requests made by the team and AD.

Athlete of the Week
Athlete of the week December 2nd
The Athlete of the week is Natalya Hotovec. She plays on the varsity basketball team. She has been playing basketball since she was four years old and believes she is a better player because of that experience. She balances schoolwork and athletics by doing her homework after practice and by utilizing good time management. Her inspiration is her dad because he encourages her to practice and play. She plays basketball because she loves the game atmosphere and playing with her teammates. Her advice to anyone playing basketball would be to try their hardest during practice to improve everyday. Her teammates and coaches make her a better player by helping her correct her mistakes on the court. Her coach says that Natalya is a “hardworking player who always supports her team.”
