OFF THE TRACK HAPPENINGS:
GREATER LATROBE TRACK AND FIELD BOOSTER CLUB
The purpose of the booster club shall be to provide a supportive environment and financial support to the Greater Latrobe Girls and Boys Track and Field Teams. The booster club will also encourage sportsmanship, social participation and etiquette among participants, members and families. This organization shall be non-profit, tax exempt (Section 501 (c) (3), non-sectarian, and non-partisan. This organization shall not seek to direct the activities of the coaches or to control their policies, either collectively or individually. This organization may cooperate with other organizations and agencies active in promoting track and field, provided they make no financial nor manpower commitments which bind our members.
The booster club will sponsor a variety of fundraisers and operate the concession stand for all home dual meets, the Wildcat Invitational, the WCCA Track and Field Championships, and WAADA Track and Field Championships. The booster club will host our Senior Recognition Day party and End-of Season gatherings as well as other activities.
The booster club greatly appreciates the donations and sponsorships.
