We would love to have you join our fun group of parents who are passionate about supporting WHS Athletics. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
There are many ways that you can help support the Athletic Boosters Organization. The efforts of our volunteers and fundraising are what support the athletic program at Woodside High School.
Join us at our monthly ABO Board meetings on the third Wednesday of every month (except for December). Meeting times and dates here
Want to help out? Only have a couple hours at a time? We are always looking for volunteers at our events. To volunteer please email email@example.com.
Woodside athletes rely heavily on donations provided by Woodside families, staff, and community members to help fund the needs of Woodside High School’s athletic teams.
The athletic department receives funding from the school district to pay for major facilities, some coaches stipends/salaries, AD personnel, referees, some transportation, and tournament fees, etc.
However, the district funding is not nearly enough to cover all the costs associated with sustaining and improving the athletic programs provided at Woodside.
Woodside has 22 Sports that include 45 athletic teams with over 700 athletes participating.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to help keep improving Wildcat athletics!
