Join the Wildcat Touchdown Club!
In the spring of 2018, several parents reflected on their student-athlete’s experience in the football program. They wanted to do more for a program that had had a significant positive impact on their student-athlete’s overall high school experience. One parent felt so strongly that they offered to match all $500 donations made before June 30, 2018, totaling $5,000.
Please consider helping the program fulfill the matching offer by making a $500 donation today and joining the Wildcat Touchdown Club!
Woodside High School Football Program
Coach Justin Andrews and the entire coaching staff is excited to continue our tradition of excellence in developing our student athletes.
It takes a lot of resources to operate a high quality, sustainable Football program for our students. Our annual budget is on the order of $30k per year, and is managed very carefully.
This includes support for both the Varsity and JV teams: Uniforms, Pads, supplies & training apparatus, assistant coach and trainer stipends, annual equipment safety inspections, rehabilitation, and/or replacement, and more.
Only about 40% of this is paid for by District funding. The rest MUST come from parents and the ABO.
We thank you in advance for your support!

Either way, team-directed donations will go directly to the team.
Please be sure to Register your family and athletes here on the ABO site, so we can maintain accurate records and keep you updated with important information about Woodside Athletics.
We're excited to announce the Athletics Boosters Organization has already supported the Football with advance funding for uniforms, to replace several sets of pads/helmets, and other equipment the team needs for the 2017-2018 season! These funds were granted up front so critical equipment could be ordered and in place in time for the start of this Fall season.
(Please note: Summer Football camps are a completely separate program, financially.)
Support the Athletic Booster Organization!
Please consider making making an un-designated donation to the ABO, or any other team, so we can continue to have the resources to support ALL our athletes...

Athlete of the Week
Final Athlete of the week 2017/18
This week’s Athlete of the Week is freshman Katie Meade. Katie began the high jump event in 8th grade and took the event more seriously this year with the help of her supportive teammates. She enjoys participating on the Track and Field team because the team aspect and atmosphere is “golden” and each and every team member is supportive of one another. Additionally, Katie enjoys the fact that her event is an individual one which allows her to track her progress with the support of an entire team. In terms of her source of motivation, Coach Dobbins plays a pivotal role in pushing Katie to strive for excellence and consistency. Her father also helps since he is a former high jumper in college, he pushes Katie to work hard both on and off the track. With the support of her teammates, coaches, and parents, Katie qualified for CCS finals as a 9th grader and she hopes to make it to the state championships next year. Katie’s accomplishments for this year are impressive, congratulations Katie on being this week’s Athlete of the Week!
