Hello Catonsville High School Families and Sports Fans!
For those that do not know me, my name is Jennifer Stevens, the incoming Comet Booster Club President at Catonsville High School. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all back to an exciting year of Comet Athletics.
I hope you will consider joining the Booster Club as a member and/or to serve within the Club this year to help support Comet Athletics. For those that continue to be annual members and volunteer your time, thank you for your continued support! For those new to the school or have not volunteered before, we need your help!
You are asking yourself, what is the Comet Booster Club? We are a volunteer organization of Catonsville parents, alumni, coaches and administrators who help raise financial support for our athletic programs. We also sponsor activities and programs to promote the Comet Spirit both within CHS and the entire Catonsville Community.
The funds we raise are used to financially support CHS Athletics. Unfortunately the money allotted to CHS for the athletic program does not cover all the necessary expenses. Each year the Booster Club contributes money to pay for bus travel, uniforms, varsity letters and end of season awards along with many other expenses that come up throughout the year. It has been the custom of the Booster club to buy t-shirts for all championship teams. Just last year we provided t-shirts for the following teams:
JV Football County Champions JV Girls Soccer – County Co-Champions Varsity Girls Soccer – County Champions, Regional Champions and State Finalists JV Baseball County Champions Varsity Girls Lacrosse – Regional Champions and State Finalists.
Our fundraising efforts include operating our concession stands at home athletic events, selling merchandise & spirit wear, fundraising activities like our Bag and Basket Bingo (October 11th) our Annual End of the Year Pool Bash (early June) and also by offering Memberships for the Comet Booster Club.
By joining the Comet Booster Club, members receive annual free passes to all home non-playoff games. Please join and support the student athletes and CHS as a Booster Club member. Additional information about membership can be found on the Membership Page.
Along with raising funds to support our athletic program, over the past several years we have also been raising money to improve Comet Park. Our biggest accomplishment has been the completion of the concession stand and restrooms last fall. The Booster Club and Catonsville community raised over $200,000 to build the new stand. Our last phase of renovation include new bleachers and a new press box. We are so fortunate to have been awarded a matching grant from the State of Maryland for $125,000 and now the clock is ticking! We must raise $85,000 this year to match the grant that will allow us to complete the final phase. I cannot urge you enough to consider donating to this worthy cause. Better facilities at Comet Park make for a better community for all. Please see FINISH COMET PARK for more information.
if you have any questions about getting involved with the Booster Club please feel free to contact any of our board members. We look forward to working with you throughout the year. Go COMETS!!
