How You Can Help
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.
Volunteers are currently needed in Winter 2018 to help with selling Spirit Wear at "Quad Night" Basketball Games. Please click on the following link to signup to help out!! Go Wildcats!
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, 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 more than 35 athletic teams and over 450 athletes participating.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to help keep improving Wildcat athletics!

The Woodside ABO is run by parent volunteers. We depend on our community of active and concerned parents to organize events, serve on our Board of Directors, build and maintain our website, manage our finances and legal (we are a 501c3 tax exempt organization), act as team parents/representatives, taking pictures, communications and outreach, and many more important roles. Please join us!
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The ABO Board guides the direction of the ABO, organizes events to raise funds for ALL Woodside sports teams, considers and acts on funding requests from team coaches, as well working with the administration to ensure top-notch facilities and equipment for our teams. We welcome your energy, input, and help in guiding the ABO's efforts to support our athletic programs at Woodside High!
SPORTS AWARDS NIGHT CHAIR
At the end of each sports season, the ABO hosts our Sports Awards Night to honor the student-athletes and coaches for their hard work throughout their season. We collaborate with the Athletic Director and parents to create a celebratory slide show that includes rosters, award winners, team and action photos, lists of honor roll student-athletes and more. The slide show is presented at the banquet, to recognize the fun, camaraderie, and growth our students experienced during the season.
TEAM REPRESENTATIVE AT ABO MEETINGS
Serve as a liaison between your team and the ABO. Attend ABO meetings, communicate with the team and other parents about the ABO, ABO membership and its events; communicate with the ABO about team news and accomplishments. Enlist the aid of parents to take pictures of their team for use on the website, the Awards Night and other venues.
Take pictures of Woodside teams in action. These pictures can be shared with the kids and their parents, shared on the ABO website or Facebook pages, and possibly used in the Awards Night slideset. There is nothing kids (and parents) love more than to see pictures of themselves. Help capture the moments and memories that they will have for the rest of their lives.
Volunteer to help at any of our fundraising events. It can be in the planning and preparation before the event or on the day of the event. Any little bit you can do to help will help make the event more fun and successful, and help to raise funds that go directly to Woodside Athletics Programs.
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.”
