JOIN THE ATHLETIC BOOSTER CLUB

SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS

Dear ELCA Parents,

 

It is hard to believe that the 2021-2022 school year has already started. We continue to move forward each day.

The fall sports season has started and the teams are expected to do well. I just wanted to get with you to let you know that now is time to join the ELCA Booster Club. Joining the Booster Club is a great way to support the student-athletes and the teams that represent ELCA.

ELCA has a rich and proud tradition of excellence on and off the playing fields. The ELCA Booster Club’s financial contributions have made great impacts on all of the ELCA sports teams and the many athletes that have participated in our programs throughout the years.  By joining the ELCA Athletic Boosters you will be helping fund opportunities for our ever-developing sports programs.

There are many different levels of sponsorships available that you can help support ELCA Athletics. Each one is designed to meet the needs you may have as either a Corporate Sponsorship or an Individual/Family Sponsorship. All membership levels include free entry into all of the sporting events held on the campus here at ELCA. The only exclusion would be any and all GHSA playoff games in the respective sports. You will also get a minimum of two Homecoming Dinner tickets. Maybe you want to know where you will sit at the football games, we have a level for that starting with our Bronze level. Maybe you would like to advertise your business; we have a few levels which can help you with that.

Seating in the Blue Booster section at the stadium will be adjusted this year to ensure the safety of our fans. We will set up seating to accommodate social distancing. Priority will be given first to renewals from last year and then new request based on the date we receive the form. 

Heading up our Booster Membership team this year will be:

 

We would appreciate your support! Complete the "Join the Booster Club" form below to join. Once completed, we will bill your account for your membership. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Eddy Wright

THE KINGDOM ATHLETE

The Kingdom Athlete is

...a child of God daily surrendered to His will and for His service,
...an athlete who seeks to glorify God through his actions,
...an athlete who adopts the “Win the Day” philosophy in all areas of life,
...an athlete who is humble and grateful for his gifts and opportunities,
...an athlete who is submissive to authority,
...an athlete who has a teachable spirit,
...an athlete who leads by serving others,
...an athlete who strives for victory, gives perfect effort and never quits.
...an athlete who understands he represents more than himself.
...an athlete who is not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ and seeks opportunities to share the good news with teammates, parents, officials, opponents and to the multitude of children that will look to them as they model Christ-like leadership.
