Thank you for serving as a team parent for your student's athletic team. As such, you are responsible for acting as the liaison between boosters, coaches, and parents on your team. You have 100% support of the HABC board, and we want to equip you in any way possible to support your team which is a critical part of the whole athletic program at Heritage High School. While the program is comprised of 40 different JV and V teams, we function as one unit....we are ALL HUSKIES! Welcome to the pack!
What does an HHS Team Parent do anyway?
The basic role of a Team Parent is to serve as a support point for the coach/es, athletes, and parents on your child's team. Your assistance in handling communication between the Athletic Boosters and parents is crucial. It is a kindness to also offer support in other ways, as defined by the coach. Please begin by asking the coach how you can support him/her, so their efforts and energies can be maximized in the capacity of team and skill development with the athletes, while maintaining the overall governance of the team.
1. General Support - ASK YOUR COACH All coaches have different areas of need depending on their own strengths and capacities to pour into their team while maintaining work and family beyond. Please offer to assist in any ways you are able and they need.
2. Booster Liaison As a Team Parent, you serve as the conduit of information from the Athletic Booster Club to the coach, athletes, and their parents. There is one Booster meeting each month (on a Monday evening - here's a list of upcoming dates). We hope that you can attend that meeting, along with a second representative from your team. Please collect parent email and create a distribution list for your team at the beginning of each season. Also, invite members of your team to join the Booster Club using this link:https://gofan.co/app/events/339843
3. Help get Volunteers Our campus and athletic fields host roughly 80 home athletic events in a typical school year. At these events, concessions are provided by the HABC (Heritage Athletic Boosters Club) which require the service of parent volunteers. Proceeds from selling concessions goes into the Athletic Boosters General Fund in order to support the needs of ALL teams in the HHS Athletic program. The parent base from EVERY athletic team at HHS will be responsible for serving at roughly two events/competitions per SEMESTER. You or your coach will be contacted by the Boosters Volunteer Coordinator to let you know the date, time, and details of your event. Please work with the parents on your team to get volunteers for this event.
4.Fundraising Contact or point person. If you are unable to be the coordinator for such, please find another parent who is able, or better yet, link arms with a few parents on the team and make it a group effort. Boosters will just count on you to be in the loop of fundraising efforts for your team in some way. See the 'Fundraising' link below for more ideas and information on fundraising.
