Poland All-Sports Booster Club
Tradition is a word synonymous with the Poland Schools as well as with Poland Athletics. The Poland All-Sports Boosters is an organization that began in the mid 1970's and is still a successful, philanthropic organization today. The goal of the organization is to support more than 800 high school and middle school student-athletes involved in any 7- 12th grade sport.
Through donations and fundraisers, the All-Sports Booster Club offers every Poland athletic program extra money to help fund special request of each sport, purchase gear for our athletes and supplies for the school athletic trainer. It also helps to defray costs the athletic department may encounter such as purchasing student athletic awards in grades 7 - 12. The following is a list of some of the donations the club has made throughout the years.
- Cheerleading - Replaced two bulldog mascots and every three years, purchases new uniforms for the JV and Varsity Cheerleaders.
- Football - Purchased six new headsets for high school coaches and helped pay for the weight room equipment.
- Softball - Donated money towards the new softball field press box and purchased new uniform pants in 2018.

In the last year, the All-Sports Boosters have donated well over $40,000 in additional funds to help student-athletes in grades 7-12 in all sports. The All-Sports Booster Club has several major fundraisers in order to make these generous donations
possible. The Bulldog 100 is back this Fall Season! It is a raffle in which one-hundred $100 tickets are sold for a chance to win $5,000 in prize money. The club also hosts an annual fourth, fifth, and sixth grade, boy and girls youth basketball tournament in the winter. In the spring, the Booster Club hosts a golf outing.
Fundraising is an essential part in raising money for Poland students; however, most importantly and appreciated are donations from community members.
