How You Can Help

There are many ways that you can help support the Athletic Boosters Organization. We are dependent on volunteers and fundraising to support the athletic program at Woodside High School.

 

DONATIONS

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!

 

Your ABO donations may be tax deductible as the Woodside Athletic Boosters Organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Federal Tax ID# is: 27-0920851.

SPONSORSHIPS

The ABO also has a number of sponsorship opportunities for business and individuals. These range from advertising in football programs, sponsoring Field Signs that line the football field during games as well as the gym for the basketball season, sponsoring a tee for the Golf Tourney, and more!

 

Please contact The ABO President, Vice President, or Treasurer for information.

 

VOLUNTEERS

Your input and help is needed!

As are all of Woodside High School’s booster organizations, the ABO is run by parent volunteers. We  depend on our community of active and concerned parents to help with organizing events, serve on our Board of Directors, act as team parents/representatives, taking pictures (and posting to our Facebook page), 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.

 

TEAM PHOTOGRAPHER

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.

 

FUNDRAISER VOLUNTEER

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 May 21st 2018

This week’s Athlete of the Week is senior Trevor Collet. Trevor participates on the Boys Varsity Swim team and is also a Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo swim commit. As a child, Collet began his competitive swimming career when he was six years old with the support of his family. Growing up, Trevor was surrounded by great swimmers and his mother went to the Olympic Trials. Upon reflecting on the sport, Trevor said, “The best aspect of the sport is that all your training is with a team but you race individually,” Trevor appreciates the team support but thrives off of the individualistic aspects of the sport. As of right now, Trevor goes to seven practices a week and will begin practicing up to eleven times per week once he begins at Cal Poly. His hard work and dedication has truly paid off and Trevor says, “I’m extremely excited! One of my goals since I was a kid was to be able to swim in college and the fact that I am able to swim DI at Cal Poly is amazing. I love the team and the coaching staff there so I’m very excited!” Trevor qualified for the state meet in the 100 backstroke and butterfly, but this week he’ll be focusing on his AP exams. Congratulate this weeks Athlete of the Week, Trevor Collet!
