EDISON CHARGERS FOOTBALL BOOSTER CLUB
The purpose of the Edison Chargers Football Booster Club is to support the football program at Edison High School. The Booster Club will assist in helping to maintain the enthusiasm and efforts of Edison Charger football fans, and guide those efforts into the recognition of the Edison High School student athletes in their participation of athletic football competition. By identifying our football program needs and requirements, the booster club will have a positive and lasting impact on the overall health of the EHS Football program. This shall be done by organizing parent volunteers and supporters of the program to meet those needs.
Joining our booster club is critical to the operations of our high school football program. The booster club provides many additional things for the program and the athletes, above and beyond what the school is able to provide. With your contribution and help, the Edison High School Football Booster organization can continue to provide an excellent experience for the athletes, coaches, fans, and the community.
The Edison Chargers Football Booster Club provides over 90% of the operating funds needed to run the EHS Football program. Our budget is about $200,000/year and is spent on equipment, coaches, pregame and postgame meals, transportation and various other expenses that allow us to continue to field one of the best football programs in California. Our support helps provide the coaching and equipment resources required to field a Varsity, JV and Freshman team, plus the various events and projects that help our players achieve their potential.
Here is a basic list of the things that your dues help to provide the EHS Football Booster Club:
- Training Equipment
- Updated uniforms
- Coaching clinics
- Upgraded pads and helmets
- Action photos
- Hudl membership and videos
- Gameday programs
- Senior Night/senior gifts
- Work out shirts and shorts
We raise funds through participation, sponsorships, merchandise sales, donations and special events. As a non-profit entity we try hard to break even. Any surplus (should we be so lucky!) will be reinvested in special equipment for the team (like new machines for the weight room, replacement jerseys, etc).
Our key fundraising events are the sale of ads and sponsorships (for our annual golf tournament, the home game programs and the website), our annual golf tournament, candy & cookie dough sales, coupon and discount booklet sales, home game snack bar, and merchandise carrying the school logo. We also depend heavily on parent contributions and the generous sponsorship of local businesses.
It’s easy to sell sponsorships. We have several tools and packages to assist our supporters in doing this. Visit the Documents & Forms page and download one of the sponsor forms.
Membership & Volunteer Support
The other key components to any successful booster club are membership and volunteer participation. On average, our program requires approximately 5,500 hours per year of volunteer support to keep our football program running successfully. Therefore, we welcome and encourage anyone interested in supporting our program to join our booster club. We meet regularly throughout the year. Our meeting dates and times can be found on our website calendar. For more information about membership, contact one of our booster club board members.
Also, on our website we provide a Volunteers tab to encourage individuals to sign up for various volunteer opportunities. Being involved in these various events can be rewarding and fun, so sign up today and come out to join us in keeping the Edison Football program thriving.
