Our Mission Here At Hillsdale

Hillsdale High School provides students with a wide variety of athletic opportunities, and we invite you to join the Boosters in support of these programs. Our mission is to enable students to enhance their academic experience by participating in a variety of sports, enriching their time in high school, and teaching them life lessons through athletics. Through participation donations and other fundraising, we raise and spend more than $120,000 annually to supplement the athletic department budget and provide uniforms, equipment, Freshman sports, assistant coaching stipends and other critical program needs that are not covered by district funding.

The suggested participation donation has remained at $75 per athlete per sport for several years, even while expenses have increased – particularly the costs of maintaining and building a top-notch coaching staff. We look forward to a “normal” year in 2021-2022, but we have some ground to make up as last year saw a dip in revenues, while expenses remained flat from the prior year. Beginning this school year, the suggested participation fee increases to $80 per athlete per sport. If you can contribute more than $80 per athlete per sport, we greatly appreciate it, as doing so will help us meet the needs of our thriving athletic program.

As a parent of a Hillsdale Athlete, you are automatically a member of the Boosters. Please make a $80 participation donation for each sport your student plays. The participation donation is per athlete, per sport.

Available funding is distributed in accordance with the following priorities:

  1. Safety – Promotes increased safety of Hillsdale athletes.
  2. Equity – Provides support across all athletic programs.
  3. Need – Fills a critical infrastructure, programmatic, or financial need that is not adequately covered by other funding sources.
  4. Opportunity – Benefits the greatest number of Hillsdale athletes.
  5. Impact to Competition – Necessary for competition or improves Hillsdale competitive advantage.

To volunteer, provide financial or other in-kind support and / or be added to our mailing list, please contact the Athletic Boosters President Doug Leighton at doug.c.leighton@gmail.com.
