What is a Booster Club?
The American Elite All-star Booster Club (AEABC) is a group of parents who are big fans of both their kids and the sport of competitive cheer/dance/gymnastics. ALL FAMILIES ARE REQUIRED TO BE BOOSTER CLUB MEMBERS – BUT YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU ARE!
What does AEABC do?
AEABC does many things: we sponsor fundraising events to make the sport of competitive cheer, dance and gymnastics more affordable for everyone; we hold monthly meetings to ensure good communications throughout the gym for parents and owners; we sponsor many gym activities; we promote charitable work for our cheerleaders, dancers & gymnasts; we have FUN and perhaps most importantly, we support the mission and vision of our owners. AEABC is the visible entity for our parents’ spirit and sportsmanship – and that is promoted in many ways through activities throughout the year.
Does it cost money to join AEABC?
AEABC annual dues are $30 per family. Membership in AEABC is mandatory due to the many activities that AEABC provides to the program – meeting rooms at various competitions, donations to coaches gifts and charity, senior cheerleading college scholarships, and supporting activities such as insurance for our fundraising activities, creating monthly statements to show account balances from fundraising, taxes and audit fees and the business of running a support function for the families of American Elite All-stars. These expenditures are detailed in monthly treasurer reports that are covered in our monthly meetings.
What can AEABC do for me?
AEABC not only supports our athletes and helps make our sports more affordable through fundraising opportunities, but also allows for reimbursement to parents of certain items. AEABC also offers college bound seniors scholarships towards their expenses.
Senior Scholarship Information
Through the vision of parents and the owners of the gym, we wanted to provide a way to say thank you for all that you have brought to American Elite over the years, so in an effort to set-up a program for future generations we now have the American Elite Academic scholarship awards! These funds are provided by grants from local corporations, personal donations, and the American Elite Booster Club. This money will provide our athletes a nice start to their exciting future!
The number of "Scholarships" each year will be awarded based on the amount of grant money received and personal donations given during each individual cheer season. One fund will be awarded each year in memory of Kelli Halterman, a former athlete of American Elite. The Kelli Halterman scholarship will be awarded to the athlete that "best" exemplifies the overall commitment to education, cheerleading, and leadership.
