MG Sports Boosters Representative Duties

Primary objective: To enhance the experience of Maple Grove student athletes

and families. The primary goal is to create fairness by representing the needs

of each individual sport thus realizing the benefits for all in a united MG

Sports Boosters organization.

1. As a Sport Representative, what do I need to do?

Come prepared to a monthly meeting to voice your opinions on issues,

discuss fundraising and the specific needs of your sport thereby developing a

plan to work as a team to benefit all. You would communicate to others from

your sport and bring their concerns/questions to the monthly meetings to be

properly addressed and resolved quickly.

2. How often are the meetings?

Typically we will meet once per month. Groups working on a special project

may opt to meet separately in addition to the general monthly meeting.

3. Can we have more than one booster rep for our sport?

Yes, we encourage more than one person to be available to address

issues, bring questions and potential solutions to the meetings that would

address the needs of all fairly. More than one representative per sport is

encouraged however when voting on a policy, only one vote per sport is


4. How will the results and decisions of the group me made known?

We plan to develop a regular e-newsletter where sport needs and expenses

are addressed and fundraisers and their timeframes for each group are

announced. This will benefit all as to not over-lap and avoid competition with

other sports.

The goal is to create fairness and fundraising projects for the purpose of

additional equipment, transportation needs or other areas that the school's

budget fails to address. We have obtained a comprehensive list from the

administration listing all areas the school’s budget provides for and address

the needs of each sport accordingly.

Girls Varsity Soccer Team - 2009



As the MG All Sports Boosters General Fund finances the senior blankets ($ 1,500 - $ 2,000) for

our amazing athletes from ALL sports, donations to sports teams moving past playoffs and

possible scholarships, we need to generate some funds. We are seeking an effective fundraising

project. How much we can provide to those who need our financial help depends solely on the

success of a quality fundraising program. Won’t YOU join us for a special meeting (8:00 pm)

after the regular meeting (7:00 pm) on Wednesday, October 14 th at the See Zurh House? Bring

your creative ideas to put together an effective fundraising program so we can provide those
