The Athletic Booster organization provided over $12,000 to continue with the weight room upgrades that were started in the Summer of 2014. These new funds allowed the weight room to be equipped with all the updates that the head coaches communicated were needed to update the weight room completely: All new dumb bells with new racks, kettle bells with racks, bars, and 3 new glute/ham machines. The Athletic Boosters also provided $2,000 to the tennis program for the purchase of 10 new benches that are located at each of the 10 courts. In all, the Athletic Booster Organization has contributed close to $100,000 to all of our teams during the 2016-2017 school year to provide our athletes with the facility updates, equipment, training tools, uniforms, etc… that are needed to allow each of these teams to continue to compete at such a high level.
These funds were provided as part of the capital improvement funding model that the booster group participates in on a regular basis to help CHS Athletics provide the greatest opportunities for our student athletes. The partnership between CHS Athletics and the Athletic Booster Organization is arguably the most important partnership that allows our programs to continue to excel at such a consistent high level. This partnership and teamwork is essential to our success as an Athletic Organization!
