Turf payment- Every year, since 2010, Glenbard North Athletic Boosters has supported the initiative to have artificial turf installed on Weber Field. Through membership, concessions and apparel sales, as well as donations and special events, we have been able to meet our annual installment of $30,000 as payment towards our total $300,000 commitment, which ends in 2019.
Scholarship & Awards - In addition to the annual turf payment, we have been able to provided student athletes with scholarships totaling more than $5,000 each year. 7 graduating Glenbard North student athletes received a total of $5,050 in awards in 2014.
Contribution to various sports teams- As in years past, we have been able to provide Glenbard North sports more than $15,000 to use towards the purchase of uniforms, equipment and other expenses to improve our students' athletic experiences.
That's over $50,000 in money given back to our athletes each year! Come join us and be a part of encouraging our student athletes and providing for an improved athletic experience for your child.
2014-2015 Athletic Boosters Membership
The Athletic Boosters are funded primarily by Membership. We encourage all parents of our student athletes to become members and support our efforts. Memberships are closed for the 2014-2015 school year. Watch for our updated signup for the 2015-2016 year (coming soon). You can still make a donation to our organization via MyPaymentNetwork, which is the same payment network used by District 87.
Volunteering with the Athletic Boosters is not just an "opportunity to give" - it's required. As part of your GN Athletics Boosters membership, all members are required to volunteer for a minimum of 3 hours per student athlete per active season. We need approximately 20 volunteers to help in the concessions stand for home football games, and volunteers numbering from 3 to 10 for other GN sporting events. Here's your chance to get your hours in early!
We've implemented a new signup method - SignUpGenius. In order to volunteer for concessions or to sell apparel at one of our athletic functions, click on the icon on our volunteer page. Just follow the prompts.
Do you know that volunteer hours also means $$ for the team ?
For each hour worked, GN Athletic Boosters donates $5 directly back
to the sport of your choosing. You may volunteer during any event.
