Elections for Booster Club Board – Coming in April

Elections for positions on the Battlefield High School Athletics Booster Club board will be held in the April 8th booster club meeting. Please consider volunteering and running for one of the leadership positions in the organization that helps support Battlefield High School’s athletics programs. The board is actively seeking to fill the roles of President and Vice President.

Mattress Sale Fundraiser

DOUBLE THE FUN! “Mattress Madness” Joins Shamrock Shootout!
The BHS ABC will host its first ever Mattress Sale Fundraiser on March 15 and 16th (Saturday and Sunday). Enjoy the events at the Shamrock Shootout and check out our “Mattress Madness” at the same time! Booster clubs throughout Virginia have said these are top quality mattresses at a discount price. What better way is there to help BHS student-athletes than to get a product you need at a good price? At least plan on stopping by BHS March 15th to enjoy some of the Shamrock Shootout and check out the prices and quality of the mattresses. (Yes! The BHS common areas will have multiple mattresses on display!!) The Mattress Madness continues on Sunday, March 16th.

Shamrock Shoot-out 2014 3v3 Basketball Tournament

Shamrock Shootout 2014 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament – Registration is now closed and we are looking forward to a great day of youth basketball on Saturday, March 15, 2014. See our web page for tournament rules and other information.

Help with the Concessions Stand Needed!

We need volunteers to help with cleaning and stocking the outside concessions stand. This is a great way for students to acquire some community service hours and help out Battlefield’s athletics programs. If interested, please contact Susan Coxson at BHSConcessionsscoxson@gmail.com

Ways & Means Committee Chairperson Needed

The Battlefield High School Athletics Booster Club is seeking a volunteer to fill the role of Ways & Means Chairperson. The Ways & Means Committee is charged with providing fundraising programs and activities that demonstrate a positive school spirit. The new Chairperson will lead the committee to identify ways to generate and recognize a positive image of Battlefield High School and its Athletic Program within our community:

  1. Define ways and means of fund raising.
  2. Attend Haymarket / Gainesville Business Association meetings and communicate with sponsors and area businesses.
  3. Work with Boosters Club major events to guide fund raising efforts.
  4. Recommend and develop new fund raising events.
  5. Recommend fundraising events
  6. Coordinate individual team fund raising events to help avoid conflicts.

If you can devote some of your time to assisting with any of these efforts, please contact Ron Fairbanks at fairbanks@ieee.org
