About the Kentlake Football Booster Club

Booster Club Booster Club

The Kentlake Football Booster Club is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization whose purpose is to support the football program at Kentlake High School.  We are a 501(c)3 designated tax-exempt organization.

The boosters help coordinate many activities, including preparing and serving pre-game meals, offering spirit wear, and producing game day programs.  We help coordinate special activities like Senior Night and the team awards banquet.  We do our best to keep you well informed through regular email newsletters, this website, and social media.  We raise money for the program through business sponsorships, hosting tournaments, and coordinating direct fundraisers.

We are an open organization.  Anyone who wants to help support Kentlake football is a member of the club.  We typically meet at Kentlake once a month during the school year.  These meetings will be advertised and are open to all.  If you feel called to help, please feel invited and welcome.
