Membership in The Booster Club is the best way to receive information concerning the basketball program. Information is distributed to the membership via email and group text reminders for important dates and information. Additionally we have set up a Facebook Page here and will be adding information and pictures. Please “Like” our Facebook page and feel free to post pictures related to basketball for everyone to enjoy.
Meetings: Booster club meetings are held once a month, usually on the first Tuesday of the month. They are held at Pace High School and usually start at 6:30. They generally last 30 to 45 minutes. Coach Pippin attends these meetings. We will confirm specific dates in advance of each meeting. We encourage your attendance at Boosters meetings, as this is where important decisions that will affect you and your player are made. Your vote counts and your input is necessary and valuable to the program.

Member and Parent Responsibilities: The success of The Boosters Club and the basketball program depends on its members and parent participation. ALL Boosters members and parents are expected to support the program by volunteering and participating in fundraisers.
Some of the opportunities for support are as follows:
Working Concessions/Donations Chaperoning Dance Fundraiser

Please make it a priority to read all Boosters information. If email or text is not the best way for you to receive information please talk to the Secretary to arrange for alternative means of communicating with you.
Coaches: The coaches will communicate predominately through the players and The Boosters Club. Coaches typically set up a “team text” system to relay important information to the players such as, practice times, game times, open gym, etc. It is the players responsibility to check and respond to these texts and communicate the info to the parents! If your player does not communicate via text please have him talk to his Coach regarding alternative means of communication.
