Booster Club



ANNA INDIANS ATHLETIC BOOSTER CLUB

The Anna Indians Athletic Booster Club was formed in 2010 to offset cuts made to the school athletic programs. Thankfully our community and people like you came together to assist our youth. For the past few years and again this year, we will cover the costs of the boys and girls 5th and 6th grade basketball programs, along with all tournaments, some equipment, uniforms and concession items for all sports programs at the junior high. This includes bowling, softball, basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, track/field and baseball.

For those who have donated in the past and for those donating this academic school year, we truly appreciate your generosity. We are asking every parent, grandparent, community member and business to join our Anna Indians Athletic Booster Club in 2017-2018. We have four levels of membership: Student, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Please help us send a message to our youth that we care about their present and their future!

A growing body of research literature finds that in addition to improved physical health, sports play a primarily positive role in youth development, including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, fewer behavioral problems, and better psychosocial. Many studies focus on the effects of sport on the five "C's" - competence, confidence, connections, character, and caring-which are considered critical components of positive youth development. It has long been thought that the many facets of playing sports-the discipline of training, learning teamwork, following the leadership of coaches and captains, learning to lose-provide lifelong skills for athletes. - - - - truesport.org
