Organized in 1978, the Booster Club’s purpose is to provide support through service projects and fundraisers for Charlotte Latin’s athletic program and to promote good sportsmanship and school spirit. During the school year, more than 80% of the students in the Upper School and Middle School participate on at least one athletic team. Membership in the Booster Club offers an opportunity for parents to support these students actively by volunteering to work with various fundraising and service projects. Membership is on a family basis with annual fees of $150 for a Super Booster Family membership and $50 for a Booster membership. All Latin families, and extended family members, such as grandparents and alumni, are invited to join and participate in the Booster Club.
The Booster Club Board of Directors consists of the officers and committee chairpersons. The Board meets monthly for committee reports and to plan future Club activities. Club activities include the production of a sports program book published each sports season, operation of concessions, ticket sales, the annual Hawkspy Awards, merchandise sales, a Winter Showcase evening, providing volunteers and support when Charlotte Latin hosts NCISAA state tournaments and other events designed to promote spirit and support the School and its athletic program.
Funds raised through the Club’s activities and membership fees are used for projects that support the School’s athletic program. The Board consults the Headmaster and the Athletic Director when considering project funding. The Athletic Director regularly attends Board meetings. The Booster Club generally undertakes one major project in addition to several smaller projects each year. Recent Booster Club "Good Works" contributions include:
- three new scoreboards for Patten Stadium, the baseball field and the field hockey field;
- Athletic Hall of Fame signage
- closed circuit TV in the stadium concession stand;
- a track & field record board;
- major financial participation in the renovation of the South Campus and construction of the Coaches' Pavilion;
- the swim Record Board.
Anyone who would like to volunteer to participate in a Club activity or who has a question or suggestion regarding the Booster Club should contact any Booster Club Board member.
