Become a Booster TODAY!
The O’Connell Athletics Boosters is a volunteer organization that supports ALL our O’Connell athletes ~ ALL TEAMS and ALL ATHLETES at the Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity levels.
The Bishop O'Connell Athletics Boosters are looking for each and every family to join us in making this year at O'Connell the most exciting year ever! We invite all of you to join us in our quest to promote spirit not only for our athletic teams but for our school as a whole. Membership is an active symbol of that support and enables the Boosters to promote Bishop O’Connell High School’s name as well as provide financially for some of the additional needs of both our athletics program and our student body as a whole.
Past investments made by the Athletics Boosters Council include a bus that drives many of our athletes to practices and games, the gym’s new scoreboard, banners and trophy cases, a tractor to manicure our fields, the newly renovated Weight Room and Athletic Training Room. The latest project supported by the Boosters is the new stadium concession stand.
So, we're calling on ALL O'Connell fans - not just the families of athletes - to help us build yet more momentum!
We are active throughout the year with various activities after school and at various athletic and school events. We would love to have you join us!
NEW FOR 2017-2018 - All parents of DJO student athletes are required to work a minimum of two shifts in our concessions stand. This ensures that ALL teams earn money from concessions sales and ALL teams contribute to booster purchases that benefit ALL athletics programs. This year, booster reps will distribute sign-up links to their teams for specific games and after-school shifts. It is the team's responsibility to fill assigned shifts. If you must cancel for any reason, you must find a replacement from within your team. There will also be sign-up links for OPEN weeks or after-school shifts and events that any parent from any team can sign up to volunteer. We rely on our volunteers to make the Athletics Boosters a success. Thank you in advance for your service. Please contact your booster rep with questions, or contact Karen Clerici at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Boosters Club Information
The Bishop O’Connell Athletics Boosters Council is comprised of a parent representative from each team as well as a member of the athletics department. The Athletics Boosters Council was formally organized in 2005 with the adoption of a constitution and by-laws. The main goal of the Boosters is to provide the framework and structure by which ALL the athletic teams at O’Connell can work together for the betterment of our student athletes and the community that supports them. To accomplish that goal, the Boosters organize and staff the concession stand, run the seasonal sports awards nights, hold fund raising events such as the Booster Bash, and sell spirit gear and memberships of support. We want the outside world to see what we already do!
We meet on the second Monday of each month in the Conference Room, Teachers Lounge or Library at 7 p.m., and meetings are open to all. If you have any questions about the Boosters, please feel free to contact any member of the Executive Board.
