FALL SPORTS PROGRAM – This year the Austin Booster Club will again be offering a color, Austin Sports Program where ALL TEAMS are invited to participate. Each team/sport has been asked to secure the equivalent of ONE FULL PAGE AD (see form link below for costs) and is more than welcome to place a team ad (for team page cost, please email Melanie for more information). The more the merrier. Watch the Booster Club’s Facebook page and Twitter Account for examples of some of the AWESOME personal ads we had placed in the program last year. The sky’s the limit on these ads – they just need to be turned in in art-ready form (jpg, gif, or pdfs accepted). We have a tight deadline this year, so no due date extensions are expected! And remember, ads are NOT included in any of membership packages this year.


FALL SPORTS KICKOFF – (Date: Saturday, August 25) The idea is simple, the Olympics has an “opening ceremony” in which the athletes are introduced and “presented” to the world and the host country “officially” opens the sporting events.  So similar the AHS Athletes and Teams are to be presented to the AHS Community and all wished the best of luck in the hopes they will do their very best in representing AHS in whatever sport they participate.  The event historically was the kick-off to the football season, but since it was such a huge success last year, the administration and leadership of AHS and AHS booster club chose to invite all sports that take place in the fall to be part of the “official” opening of the games.
