PIONEER – On Saturday, October 25, the North Central Athletic Boosters held their annual membership drive. Twenty-six student-athletes as well as 15 coaches and athletic booster members took time out of their Saturday morning to assist with the membership drive. From 10 am to 12 pm the student-athletes, along with the adults, canvased the streets of Pioneer seeking the financial support of the community in the form of a North Central Athletic Boosters Membership. Following the membership drive, the athletic boosters graciously provided pizza to the student-athletes.
Three membership options are available. A Bronze membership costs $25, a Silver membership is $50, and a Gold membership runs $100. All memberships provide members with their names included in the sports program, as well as being displayed on the newly purchased membership board which will be posted outside the Varsity Gym. Members are also granted voting privileges at booster meetings, as well as a decal to proudly display their support.
The North Central Athletic Boosters provide financial support for all of the athletic programs at North Central. Recent contributions include: A reverse raffle, annual golf outing, booser membership board, track/cross country warm-up suits, 1000 point sign, baseball and softball scoreboards, construction of the concession stand for outdoor events, senior posters in the gymnasium, as well as several other contributions. Future projects include a press box for the baseball/softball complex and photos of athletes and teams that have competed in the State Tournament or received All-State recognition.
