What Boosters Are Doing For West Aurora Athletics

Since 1970, the Blackhawk Sports Boosters have provided volunteer and financial support for athletic programs across the West Aurora school district.

 

The West Aurora Blackhawk Sports Boosters consist of parents and friends of West Aurora High School who strive to promote school spirit and pride by supporting Blackhawk athletics. We take an active role in making West High athletic programs and events memorable experiences for our athletes and fans. We do this by providing services that include concessions at games, spirit wear sales, and souvenir programs.

Fund Raising Agenda

This year the Sports Boosters will contribute over $80,000 to all athletic teams and levels. The Sports Boosters fund the supplies and equipment that the coaches’ budgets cannot support.

  • The baseball, basketball, football, golf, soccer, and tennis teams will be equipped with new balls and the badminton and bowling teams will be receiving tablets.
  • High definition video recording equipment will be purchased for the basketball and cross country teams.
  • Digital foul boards and padded chairs for home and visitor seating are among the capital items that will be purchased this year.
  • The Sports Boosters will continue to support the sports programs for middle school athletics with a contribution of $2400 to their programs.
  • The Sports Boosters also provide scholarship awards for college-bound senior athletes.
  • In previous years, we have also invested towards facility improvements and helped with facility trophy cases and framing for all-conference and conference championship photos that are displayed in the halls for all to see.
  • Contributed to new track surface, stadium surface, gym equipment and equipping field houses.
  • Contact any coach or the Athletic Director for details on how each sport, the trainers, the weight room, and the overall Athletic Department are being supported.

Please help us keep our athletic programs strong and competitive. Our Sports Boosters board meetings are generally held on the second Monday of every month. All members are welcome to attend.
