FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Booster clubs do heavy lifting
Paulding Neighbor - August 23rd
Football booster clubs throughout West Metro vary in support and impact on the programs they serve.
Just as in many other sports, high school football programs have booster clubs, sometimes referred to as the school’s "touchdown club."
While booster clubs exist in some form throughout the region, their level of involvement differs from school to school.
South Paulding Spartan Touchdown Club vice president Tim Mitchell, owner of Paulding Sporting Goods, said the purpose of a booster club is to "support the coach in financials and logistics of the football team."
With an estimated 30 members, aside from the board members, anyone in the community can be involved in the Spartan Touchdown Club – though there is a fee which allows members to have a vote on financial decisions.
The club provides pregame meals for the players, helps prepare the field on game days, helps with maintenance, operates and prepares food for concession stands, provides meals to the coaches on Saturday when they watch film and provides player support in times of personal need.
The club at South is heavily involved with the football program, so much so that the president was on the hiring committee of the new head coach when former head coach Tim Glanton left.
