Maine West Athletic Booster Club

Another great year of Warrior sports is upon us. As the 2016-17 school year gets under way, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself as the new president of the Maine West Athletic Booster Club and to congratulate all of our young athletes on the hard work and dedication they have shown throughout the summer. While we suffered a devastating loss of a much loved girls basketball coach we also saw a huge outpouring of Warrior Spirit at his memorial service. We saw volunteers participating in West Fest (our largest fundraiser of the year) and saw young athletes in almost every sport participating in summer camps, leagues, off season work outs and tournaments. We saw very strong results in summer league play which gives us great hope for the upcoming seasons and more importantly we welcomed into Maine West a whole new group of talented athletes, our incoming Freshman class looks like they will be a great addition to our family. Sadly we also had to say goodbye to some fantastic graduating seniors who in many cases will carry the Warrior Spirit with them as they start their college careers. Best of luck to them and remember as you move on in life, you will always be Warriors!

I also wanted to take this opportunity to remind all of you who the Maine West Athletic Boosters are. We are a non-profit organization comprised of parents, families, alumni, coaches, teachers, school administrators and community members who are dedicated to improving the opportunities for all Maine West athletes. The club supports every team and athlete at the school by providing funds that are used toward the development of programs, coaches and athletes. Money we have provided has gone toward the purchase of uniforms, equipment, supplies and various other items. Each year the athletic department puts together a wish list and provides it to the club and we fulfill as many of those wishes as we can. Every  sport at Maine West has had the financial support of the Boosters.

This is where you come in, while the Booster Board, all of the committees and the volunteers do everything we can to fund these wishes, we can’t do it without your help. We hope you will consider becoming a member, a volunteer or a sponsor for Maine West Athletes. Please consider becoming a member or come out to a meeting, volunteer for an event or make the ultimate commitment and join our Board. Remember that every little bit helps these young athletes and while they may be our Warriors they are your children, your neighbors and they are the present and future of Maine West Athletics.

Thank you in advance for your support and GO WARRIORS!
