All are welcome to join us at the annual Booster Club picnic. Come share hockey stories, talk about the upcoming season, and learn about what it means to join the Booster Club.
The Club gets together to welcome the players to the team and celebrate the beginning of the season. Club members provide a potluck dinner and donate new hats for the players to choose from.
The Club hosts a holiday party for the players. We put together gift bags for each player and give them a large gift to show our appreciation for their hard work. Past gifts have included gift cards for food, customized sweatshirts, blankets, and a team trip to an indoor nerf arena. Club members also donate ties for the players.
This party is open to everyone. Players are split up across the lanes so that participants get to bowl with them. High scores for single game and total scores (both players and participants) win prizes.
The Club hosts a welcome room at the parents’ hotel so that the team parents have a place to get information about the area and mingle with other team families. The Club also provides gift bags for the parents to thank them for allowing their sons to play in Seattle.
At the beginning of each season interested Club members sign up to make scrapbooks of the season for all of the players. At the scrapbook party, scrapbook buddies present their scrapbooks to the players over a buffet dinner.
