About Sycamore Athletic Boosters

The Boosters support athletics at the high school and junior high where our tax dollars and school budgets fall short.  In the past decade alone, we have funded between $750,000 and $1 Million for the advancement and success of Sycamore sports.  These dollars directly benefit our student athletes in all sports in a variety of ways, both big and small.  Here’s just a sampling of what the Boosters have funded out of the approximately 150 items that have literally benefited every single sports program:

  • equipment at sporting facilities including the Gregory Center, our gyms, wrestling rooms and tracks
  • several scoreboards, including the football scoreboard and the new scoreboards at the high school gym
  • various sports specific assistance such as:
    • replacing worn out hockey goalie equipment
    • benches for tennis teams
    • video cameras for coaches to film and critique athletic form
    • a jumping machine for the basketball and volleyball teams
    • scorers tables and players courtside chairs
    • Chess Team Match Clocks
    • and much, much more.

 We also support building school spirit and pride with examples including:

  • funding the mural outside the Junior High gym
  • refurbishing sports trophy cases
  • planting the tree grove near the high school practice fields
  • organizing sports fields clean-up days
  • as well as offering Sycamore Aves flags for families to display Sycamore Pride from their homes.

Where do we get the money to do all of this? 

First, we count on membership dues from families involved in the athletic program.  Last year we had almost 400 families paying membership dues to the Sycamore Athletic Boosters.

Then we work hard at fundraising to augment these funds by presenting large fundraising events like the annual social event, basketball and golf tournaments, selling sponsorships, and of course the proceeds from working the concessions stands and split-the-pot drawings.

Looking towards the future

With the budget cuts stemming from the reduced school levy, the Boosters are going to be called upon as never before to help maintain the outstanding athletic tradition that Sycamore has enjoyed for years.  We thank you in advance for your continued support!
