Banquet Information

  • High School Teams are expected to hold a banquet at the end of the season.  The All-Sports Booster Club provides some funds to offset the cost of the banquet – see the link below for more information.  Middle School Teams are encouraged to hold an end-of-season celebration; however, no funds are currently available to support the event.
  • Date, Time, Location:  HS Varsity Coaches, please contact, or have your team parent contact, the Administrative Assistant for Athletics to set-up a date, time, & location for your banquet at least 2 months prior to your proposed banquet date so that invitations may be sent to the Board, and the District and High School Administration.  Banquets are traditionally held in the High School Cafeteria at 6:30 pm; however, some coaches choose to hold their banquet at an alternate location or time.  MS Head Coaches,  please contact, or have your team parent contact, the Administrative Assistant for Athletics to set-up a date, time, & location for your end-of-season celebration at least 2 months prior to your proposed date so that it can be added to the AD and At’s calendar.  End-of-Season celebrations are traditionally held in the Middle School Cafeteria; however, some coaches choose to hold them at an alternate location.
  • Format:  HS Coaches, please choose a format (meal and awards presentation OR desserts and awards presentation) for your banquet if being held in the High School Cafeteria and communicate this information to the Administrative Assistant for Athletics to be included on the invitation sent to the Board and Administration.
  • Certificates of Participation:  All student-athletes and managers will receive a Certificate of Participation each season they participate with a team.  These will be provided to you mid-season to avoid the end-of-season rush.  Please review the certificates when you receive them and ask for any changes or missing certificates early so that all participants receive their certificate at the end-of-season celebration or banquet.
  • Varsity Awards: HS varsity coaches will be asked to recommend any of their varsity players for a varsity award who have met the criteria set forth by the district.  Please see the Recommendation Instructions for additional information.
  • Programs: HS Coaches are encouraged, but not required, to have programs for their banquet.  They can be as minimal as a one-page document or as complex as you desire.  Help with collating and copying is available from the Administrative Assistant for Athletics proved at least a week’s notice is given prior to your event.
