Athletic Boosters Association
Promoting Mason Mustang Athletics
Dear George Mason Families,
Please join the GMHS Athletic Boosters Association today! The Association actively supports all athletic programs at George Mason, in an effort to continue and enhance the extraordinary overall success that Mason Athletics has enjoyed for many years. Our work helps students, parents, coaches, and the community to maximize their enjoyment of Mason Athletics. The future looks bright, with the recent installation of a new track and turf field, but your direct help is also needed.
Through the sale of memberships, fund raising, and volunteer activities, the Boosters are able to:
Recognize teams and individual athletes with a reception and awards evening each season
Provide concessions at athletic events
Grant funds to the GMHS Athletic Department toward major equipment purchases (e.g., new lacrosse safety nets and baseball batting practice cage, a motorized cart for Mason's trainer, lights for baseball and softball )
Sell vouchers for admission to athletic events at a significant discount
Support seven scholarships for graduating seniors each year
Provide coaches with distinctive new Mason apparel each year
Supply affordable Mason logo spirit wear for purchase by the community
Publish an annual Student Directory for GMHS
Sponsor an annual College Commitment Ceremony for recruited Mason athletes
Recognize past achievements through the Mason Hall of Fame
Provide planning input and policy advice to the school system, School Board, and City Council
Encourage community involvement with GMHS Athletics
The Boosters Association is comprised entirely of volunteers who contribute countless hours to Mason Athletics. However, we can only continue to do so with the involvement of new members each year, as students graduate. Please consider taking an active role in the Association as a future officer, committee chair, or participant in our various fund raising and other activities. If your children participate in Mason Athletics, or if you just wish to support the program, please become a member to help us improve the athletic experience for all at Mason. Your tax-deductible membership dues and other contributions are the largest source of funds for our work.
In addition, the Boosters manage the Bill Rose Fund. This bequest from the late Bill Rose supplies financial support to economically disadvantaged student-athletes at GMHS. This includes, but is not limited to, payment for personal equipment, sports clinics, and the annual GMHS athletic fees.
Finally, the Boosters own and annually fund the Mason Athletics website: www.masonathletics.org.
Again, please join today and receive your free Student Directory, and then become involved with current projects.
Thank you to all renewing members for your continued support. The Association is a 501(c)(3) organization and is formally recognized by FCCPS as a school-affiliated organization. Please either mail the form on the next page, or go to the GMHS website and click on “Activities” and then “Athletics” to get to the website above, or go there directly. Once there, click on “Fan Shop” to become a member, purchase game vouchers or spirit wear, buy additional directories, or make a contribution.
Hope to see you at many Mason athletic events during the 2016-2017 school year. Go Mustangs!
Tom Johnson, President, GMHS Athletic Boosters Association
