Welcome to Cross Country!
The Yorba Linda Cross Country Boosters are very proud of the high standards and the excellent winning tradition created by the past and present members of the YLHS Cross Country teams and our excellent coaches. It is our goal to continue these high standards and watch our children engage in an experience that will last a lifetime.
When the California state budget hit an all-time low, funds from Sacramento started to cover less and less each passing year. Rather than eliminate these programs, booster clubs were established with the goal of sustaining them for the benefit and enrichment of students throughout their high school years.
As with all programs in public schools, we receive minimal financial support from the school which requires us to rely heavily on financial contributions from parents, sponsorships and fundraising. It costs over $400 per athlete to run a successful program. This team can only be successful with your support. In order to make this coming year a fun and exciting time for everyone, the Booster Club needs help from all the parents. The parent participation contribution along with our fundraising offsets the cost of running the program and includes team t-shirts, race entries, the purchase of equipment, and payment of our coaches’ stipends just to name a few. Uniforms are provided for purchase or for borrowing from the school. Borrowed uniforms are booster club property and must be returned at the end of the season.
The dictionary defines a booster as “a person or thing that boosts; specifically, an energetic and enthusiastic supporter, person or thing that supports, assists, or increases power or effectiveness.” Every parent is part of the booster club. In order to make our Cross Country program successful, we need help from all of our parents – the boosters. We want to ensure that everyone is involved. Parent help is needed throughout the season. Your voluntary contributions of time and financial donations will help to provide our student athletes with a quality program.
Please let us know where you would like to help! We appreciate your support.
