The purpose of the Williamsburg Booster Club is to provide all Junior High and High School athletes, cheerleaders, and POMS dancers with the necessary uniforms and equipment that the school activity fund is not able to provide.

Ticket sales do not go to the Booster Club. Ticket sales go to the athletic fund, which is used to pay coach's salaries, umpire/referee costs, and team transportation.
Who should join the Booster Club and become a member?
YOU! The Booster Club cannot continue to support the Raider athletic teams without the support of parents, grandparents, local businesses, and community members. Whether you are the parent of a student athlete, enjoy attending high school or junior high events, have younger children who will soon be on Raiders teams, or just like to support the youth of the community - the Booster Club is for YOU! Without the Booster Club, our student athletes and families would need to front the vast majority of expenses for uniforms and our teams would not have the equipment they need to succeed.
Joining the Booster Club DOES NOT require you to attend any meetings. The "Membership" is purely a financial donation.
