Booster club spirit support is key to keeping the programs up and running. With a high level of booster club energy, the club and the school can both succeed in their missions and goals. Booster club spirit support is what drives students and adults to the signup sheets, bringing the members in and raising the success of the fundraisers.

What Is Booster Spirit?

Booster Club Spirit Supports the team and club!

Booster club spirit support is an identity closely associated with the school and community. It promotes good sportsmanship and camaraderie among the students, their families, and the members of the educational institution. It fosters a sense of belonging amongst the students and staff. To put it in easier to understand terms:

  • It’s pride in the school, the programs, and the students.
  • It’s energy levels and the promotion to keep motivation high.
  • In its simplest form, it’s the heart of the school.

Your booster club spirit is an integral part of student achievements and school experience.

How Booster Spirit Impacts Club Volunteering

When the booster club spirit is integrated into a project, it promotes enthusiasm and becomes more fun. The more fun something appears the more people want to do it. When there is booster club enthusiasm for projects, fundraisers, and events, you promote your group and your mission by simply being yourself and having fun.

By injecting booster club spirit, you can lift the overall morale of the group as well as improve the image of the booster club within the school and the community. Increasing the booster club’s value to your community at large increases donations through fundraisers, membership fees, and attendance at meetings and events.

Furthermore, Students directly affected by the booster clubs efforts and contributions to a school program will gladly tell their parents and friends about the booster club mettle. This word of mouth promotion helps increase interest in the booster club as people seek out more knowledge about upcoming events and fundraisers and ways that they can help through volunteering for the booster club.

Utilizing Booster Club Spirit To Boost Student And Volunteer Support

Booster club spirit is a great way to bring everyone together with the feeling that they are doing something bigger than themselves. Not only that but it makes volunteer work much more enjoyable as you work together with friends for a common goal.

Raising booster club spirit doesn’t have to be a daunting task or a task within itself at all. Having fun and doing things that you would normally do to promote the group can be effective ways of raising booster club spirit without actively trying.

Some fun participatory events that your booster club can do to raise its booster spirit are:

  • Throwing a back to school BBQ or event
    • This is a great way to casually bring teachers, students, and families, together and mingle before the first bell. It’s also a good chance to promote your booster club before school starts so that you can get a few more members or volunteers. You can even recruit the help of the school mascot to be there and to help promote school spirit.
  • Having a movie on the lawn night
    • Setting up a projector and screen to play a film on the side of the school wall in the dark, while everyone sits in the grassy fields below. Or aim for a wall in the gymnasium if you prefer it to be indoors.
  • Having special dress-up days at school
    • This idea doesn’t cost a thing and can allow students and faculty to be creative to match the themes set for each day. It could be made even more fun if there was a contest for the best costumes.
  • Holding a t-shirt decorating contest for your new dropshipping fundraiser
    • Everyone knows that fundraisers are at the heart of every booster club for helping to increase revenue. Having students draw up designs that will be used on a shirt is a great way to get them involved in this fundraiser, to drum up anticipation and excitement while everyone shows a lot of school spirit.
  • Having a spirit assembly
    • A school spirit assembly geared towards the program that your booster club is supporting is a great way to involve and address all of the students within the school, at one time.
    • You can also use it as a great way to get feedback from the students within the program and the ones not involved. Ask them what they’d like to see happen, what they like or don’t like, etc. This can help your booster club to make any adjustments needed to increase the support of the student body.

Integrating Booster Club Spirit Into Marketing And Fundraising

One of the great things about booster club spirit is that it can be anywhere, including fundraisers and marketing.

With the proper fundraisers, you can make money for your booster club and increase booster spirit throughout the school.

Fundraisers such as these:

  • Booster club bumper stickers
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Car flags
  • Merchandise store

All help to bring enthusiasm and promote the school programs. While the fundraiser itself may not seem like much, and each of the items are small, they still play a big part in increasing the spirit.

For example, when someone buys a booster club bumper sticker and places it on their vehicle, they are showing everyone that they support your club and the school while passively promoting your group as well. It’s getting the brand recognition out within the community and building support for the booster club outside of the school walls.

Having booster club merchandise like t-shirts and sweaters helps to grow spirit both inside and outside of the school. When students wear their merchandise out in public, they are promoting the school and group, and when they wear them at school, they are building a stronger community within the school and showing the other students that they support the group.

This helps to build stronger bonds with other students as they may become interested in finding a way to support the booster club as well.

There are many different ways to increase booster club spirit, and with most of them not costing anything, you can easily build support within the school and community. Because spirit is such an important aspect of the club, trying to raise the booster club spirit should be a priority in order to continue bringing in more volunteers and having successful fundraisers.
