About KIHS Athletic Boosters
The KIHS Athletic Boosters is a non-profit all-volunteer organization, the only one authorized by the Board of Education to raise funds for all KIHS teams and for KIHS athletic facilities. The Athletic Director is a permanent member of our Board of Directors. Every dollar we raise is used to help our student athletes, teams, coaches, and school by providing items the school’s annual budget does not fund. The Boosters provide funding for:
Athletic equipment and uniforms
Improvements to athletic facilities and fields
Need based scholarships so all athletes can attend team camps and clinics
Recognition wear for teams when they win championships
Merit and need based college scholarships for senior class student athletes
Since KIHS opened in 1998, the Athletic Boosters have contributed more than $600,000 in funding, labor and materials for KIHS and its student athletes. More recently, the Boosters and KIHS teams working together raised more than $50,000 each school year. Membership in the Boosters is open to individuals, businesses and service organizations–anyone who shares our interest in helping our student athletes, teams, coaches, and improving our athletic facilities.
The Boosters recognize the value of high school sports because participation provides student athletes with many valuable life lessons, increased self-esteem, and opportunities for recognition and success. It is widely recognized that student athletes may have a better chance for admission to college, and may receive more scholarship dollars, because they have demonstrated the self-discipline, teamwork, and time management skills needed for success in college. High school sports also provide a healthy outlet for youthful energy, and a group of friends who share the same positive interests.
You, your business or your organization can help by joining the Boosters, sponsoring a sign in the stadium or gym, sponsoring a scholarship, donating equipment needed by our athletic programs, or by a combination of these.
