Greetings Whitman Parents,

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.  Membership is one of the key ways in which Boosters raise money but given the current status of sports, we have decided that we will not conduct a membership drive this year.  While we will obviously also not get concessions revenue, 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 Elissa Ginsky at eginsky@aol.com about getting involved.  Thanks so much.

Physical Day and Concussion Baseline Testing

2021 Date TBD

The Whitman All-Sports Booster Club sponsors physicals and concussion and baseline testing for all athletes.  Announcements will be made as to dates and times and you may check whitmanathletics.org any time for more information.

A sports physical will clear a student for ALL ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES during the entire school year.

Take advantage of this opportunity to get all of your required paperwork completed before summer begins.  The sports physical is a screening exam and is not meant to substitute for  a full annual examination.  If any problems are detected at the screening, the athlete will be referred to his or her family doctor.

For more information and all required forms to go Whitman Athletics.  All proceeds generated from these fundraisers will go to the Whitman All-Sports Booster Club.

CONCUSSION BASELINE TESTING WILL ALSO BE INCLUDED FOR ATHLETES WHO DIDN’T TAKE THE TEST LAST YEAR
