Hoover-Meredith Booster Club
Frequently Asked Question for Families

What is the Hoover-Meredith Booster Club?
The Hoover-Meredith Booster Club exists to foster interest and provide financial support towards extracurricular activities. These include athletic teams, fine arts programs and school sanctioned organizations at both Meredith Middle School and Hoover High School.

What types of funding has the Booster Club provided?
The Booster Club has helped finance several items, such as the nets for the baseball batting cage, the scoreboard at the football field, timer pads for the swimming pool, Hoover auditorium seating and post-prom grants, to name a few of the most recent projects.

How do I become involved with Booster Club?
You can be involved with Booster Club in multiple ways. One way is to provide direct financial support through a membership. Different membership levels are available so you can choose the one that’s right for you. Another way to be involved is to donate your time helping at various events throughout the year, such as the golf fundraiser, jazz festival, and Ford’s Drive 4 UR School fundraiser. One of the most important ways to get involved is to volunteer as part of a Hoover or Meredith group to work in the concession stands throughout the year. Check with your student’s coach or director for more information.

Why is it so important for volunteers to work in the concession stands?
The only way the concession stands can be open is if volunteers are available to staff them. Sales from concessions are one way the Booster Club makes money to help support athletic and fine arts programs. The concession stands are also a good public relations activity to promote a great experience at the schools.

How do I sign up to become a Booster Club member?
Complete the membership form and mail it with your check to the Hoover Meredith Booster Club c/o Hoover High School. The form is available on the websites for both Meredith and Hoover. You can sign up at any time. Memberships are valid from August 1 through the end of July the following year. Link to the form: 2017 membership form for FAMILIES
