2018-2019 WELCOME TO WEST POTOMAC HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS!
The Wolverine Athletic Booster Club (WABC) is a volunteer organization made up of parents who fiver their time, talent, and money to enure the success of the West Potomac athletic programs. We strive to provide our children with the necessary tools to have a successful and rewarding athletic experience. We also provide countless volunteer hours. Individuals mow and water fields, sell tickets and concessions at events, hold team dinners, work as officials and announcers at games, serve on the WABC committees, sell WABC memberships and Christmas tress, and organize food for the pep rally and award dinners. Out total volunteer hours for any give year averages over 7,000 hours.
Fairfax County only provides funding for coaches, transportation, and officials. All other costs such s uniforms, equipment, field maintenance, and meet entry fees must be paid from other funds in the athletic department budget. The WABC directly provides over 43% of this budget. Our contribution was over $60,000 last year.
In addition, WABC approved $115,000 in capital outlays during the 2016-2017 academic year, including funding for a new weight room, movable batting cages, automatic basket-raising mechanisms, and additional volleyball apparatuses. Future projects include enhancements to the Wolverdome (our indoor gym) and the SPorts Lobby (inside Door #13).
The WABC raises about 1/2 of its necessary funds through membership sales and sponsors. This year we will offer four levels of membership; one of which we hope is affordable for all our households.
We always need volunteers for committees so if you are new to the West Potomac community or if you are a seasoned veteran, please consider volunteering to help on one of them. This is an excellent way to meet other parents and, more importantly, help make every athlete's experience at West Potomac as successful and rewarding as possible.
