LSM Athletic Booster Club – What do we do & how do we help?
Lewis S. Mills Athletic Booster Club offers program support through
volunteer services at the various sponsored events along with financial
support through fundraising efforts. Its purpose is to operate in full
support of the school athletic director and principal. The Booster Club
will at no time interfere with the policies, methods, eligibility requirements,
or other practices of the athletic department or administration. The
club’s goal is to provide support to all of our student athletes
and coaches. Fairness across the board is our goal. Fairness, however,
does not mean equal. Consideration is given to unique and time sensitive
needs that may be planned or may arise with less notice.

How does the LSM Athletic Booster Club support my team?
Each year the athletic department distributes an “Equipment Budgetary Request” to all coaches allowing them the opportunity to request items for their team. This form is submitted to the Coordinator of Athletics as part of the regular budget process.
Each of the items requested are prioritized by the coach as follows:
1 = required equipment
for program to function at current level – uniforms or necessary
Once submitted, the administration reserves the right to discuss alternatives to requests if said items fall outside responsible budget guidelines. Those items that can be covered by the budget will be approved. In some cases, teams may also be able to purchase these items using money fundraised or donated to that specific program. Any item that is deemed necessary but is not covered by the school budget or team will be sent to the Booster Club for their consideration. Final approval by the Booster Club is based on recommendations from the administration, current financial level, etc. and is then voted on for approval by the Executive Board.
