Did you know that Walt Whitman has an All Sports Boosters Club? Every year, the Boosters provide much needed support for Whitman athletes competing in junior varsity and varsity sports. Among the many things Boosters has done recently include working to help fund and support installation of a turf field in Marco stadium, improvements to the stadium plaza, improvements to the concession stands, field maintenance, security at games and even uniforms and weight room equipment. We are taking advantage of the quiet time in our gyms and fields to complete a number of projects this year such as refinishing the gym floor, dugouts for softball and updating the baseball field layout.
Boosters does all these things through its fundraising efforts, and we will be resuming our membership drive and concession sales. Please stay tuned for news about practice ACT/SAT and we will still run our mulch sale in the spring. Look out for other fundraisers as they arise and please contribute as you can.
The most important way you can support Boosters is by getting involved. We are always looking for new volunteers and our current Board has a number of long serving volunteers some of whom no longer have athletes at Whitman and many of whom are in their last year of participation. It would be a shame if sports come back and Boosters is not fully staffed to support them. Please reach out to Sam LeBlanc at firstname.lastname@example.org about getting involved. Thanks so much.

To all competitors and fans,
Welcome to the Walt Whitman High School sports complex. We thank you for our good sportsmanship and competition. It is my experience that you will support the athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers in a positive and respectful way. They all put in countless hours of work and preparation. Please show your appreciation by being positive. Please help keep our facilities clean. There are many trash receptacles in the area.
We have made many improvements over the years. With the help of our All-Sports Booster Club we actively maintain two of the best playing surfaces in Montgomery County. Our Booster Club supports all of our athletic teams.
We have a great community and wonderful parents. Enjoy the competition and thanks for your support.
