Athletic Booster Club

I am writing to you as President of the Athletic Booster Club with an update after our first year in existence. In the fall of 2019, with the aid of our athletic department, we created the East Catholic Athletic Booster Club. We developed the booster club to help aid our student-athletes in their quest for excellence on their respective playing surface. The initial idea was to invite parents, alum, and friends of the school to participate via memberships, sponsorships, and donations. I would have to say even without a full academic year under our belt, our first year was a success! Many enthusiastic members joined, we sold sponsorship, created new events, and in total collected almost $15,000. We will use this initial year’s collection to replace our worn volleyball net system and to provide practice goalposts for our football team, who did not have any. Remaining funds will go to other athletic needs as determined by our administration.  

Heading into the 2020–21 academic year we will be reaching out to our current membership to look for help in organizing fundraising efforts. Throughout the year we plan to grow the booster club through more events, advertising, and donations. Please let us know if you have any interest to volunteer for a role with the club. We are looking forward to a more successful second year in action! Go Eagles!

Rocco DeSimone, President

Let’s Pack The Nest!

Working with our medical advisors and administration we are still developing our winter spectator policy. Some of these will be determined by out off-site competition locations and others here on campus. In light of these uncertain times and in support of our winter student-athletes, the Booster Club would like to “Pack The Nest”! We are looking to show the community support for our student-athletes by placing signage in the gym and around the athletic areas. You would be able to purchase a sign that states either “Go Eagles” or “#WeAreEC” or a personalized sign to support our Eagles! Visit our Athletic Booster Club Square site to purchase a sign, and thank you in advance for your support!
