The Mat Club needs YOU!  Please consider helping with one of the following positions for next year.  

  • Secretary - 2 year commitment.  Primary roles are to take notes during the Mat Club Meetings, send out emails and assist the coaches with any tasks as needed.  I am happy to help train someone before I leave as we finish the year.
  • Team food organizer/distributor - This year we provided Subway and Einsteins bagels for the team.  The team greatly enjoyed both this year!  I have the contacts and information to share with the next volunteer.
  • Ad book sales coordinator - Contact previous sponsors and verify continued support and level of sponsorship.  Ideally this begins in September as the deadline is the first week of November.
  • GoFundMe coordinator - Set up the GoFundMe page and work with the team to email out the link to family and friends.  Time frame: November
  • Senior Night coordinator - Purchase gifts (with Mat Club money) for all the senior wrestlers/managers.  Order flowers for each of the senior families.
  • Alumni Night and Youth Night welcome table volunteers
  • End of season banquet planning committee

Everything the Mat Club does is to support and benefit the wrestlers, coaches and entire program.  Please consider helping out.  The more volunteers we have the less any one person needs to do alone.  

Go BHS Wrestling!
