Dear Parent/Guardian of Student Athletes

Welcome to the Zeeland Athletic Boosters!

We’re glad your son or daughter is participating in athletics for Zeeland High Schools and are thrilled to have you as part of our boosters organization. ZABC’s purpose is to provide assistance to our athletic programs. We help coaches finance needs not met by the athletic budget. As a member of boosters, you have the opportunity to be an important part of our efforts.

Our primary source of funding is generated by staffing the concessions at high school sporting events. Many of you have already received emails from your team representatives asking for help with concessions. Each hour you work earns your child’s team up to $14/hour. Last year concession workers earned over $24,000 for their teams! We need your help to generate that money again this year. Each student athlete’s parents should work concessions at least one time for each sport their son/daughter participates in during the school year. This ensures our concessions are staffed for sporting events, and your teams are earning money. Please help your athlete’s team by working a concession slot.

Our first ever Hall of Fame dinner and fundraiser “Decades of Excellence” was held on March 26, 2016. What an exciting evening highlighting successful ZPS student-athletes, coaches and community members from 1950-2012. To nominate someone and/or purchase tickets for the 2017 event – go to zps.org and click on either athletic site to find the forms. Additional Boosters information can be found under the Boosters tab on these websites.

Zeeland Athletic Boosters supports your student athletes in helping to provide uniforms, equipment, banners, etc. that their teams would otherwise not have. We also offer scholarships for which senior athletes can apply. Please consider supporting us with a donation this year. Donors will be recognized at our Hall of Fame event. You can donate by returning the bottom portion of this letter.

Thank you again for your participation in the Zeeland Athletic Boosters. Best wishes to your student
