James Madison High School Athletic Boosters GO WARHAWKS!
Our Mission Statement:
The Boosters is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization composed of parents, coaches, and other community members who have an interest in supporting the James Madison High School (JMHS) athletic program.
The three tenets of the Boosters shall be to: 1) fundraise to support athletic programs, 2) promote school spirit throughout the high school and community at large, and 3) support student athletes to achieve excellence in academics, athletics and sportsmanship.
The role of fundraising shall be to financially support facility maintenance, equipment, capital improvements and other items not covered by Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) funds that will enhance and expand the athletic programs and benefit the maximum number of students involved in athletic programs.
- JMHS has 28 athletic teams
- The funds received from Fairfax County cover stipends for the coaches, transportation, game officials and basic facilities.
- Team requirements for uniforms, equipment and capital improvements must come from other sources and the Booster Club takes on this responsibility. Even the smaller teams benefit from the Boosters. For example, the school pays for Varsity Golf Team tournament fees and match range balls.
- The Booster Club plays a crucial role in providing for capital improvements for our athletic complex in order to benefit all our teams. Most recently, the Booster Club paid to renovate the weight room (summer 2016). In the past Boosters has paid for new scoreboards (stadium field, baseball field, softball field, indoor gym), supported replacing the football field with high-tech, synthetic turf. The most ambitious project that the Booster Club contributed to was building a new heated outdoor snack bar and rest room facility. This improvement allowed JMHS to remove the portable potties and eliminate the funds required to maintain them.
We are proud to support our athletes, our school and our community!
