Athletic Boosters

The Athletic Boosters is a group of parents that meets monthly or as needed to discuss and implement plans to support the Athletic Program of Ursuline Academy. Each team should have one representative attend the scheduled meetings. They will be directly involved in discussions for implementing procedures in various areas of the Athletic Program. Areas of concentration for the Booster Board will include: Awards, Recognition, Facilities, Senior Nights, Golf Outing, Spiritwear, Hall of Fame, and a designated "Major Project."

The Boosters are not involved in decisions regarding the day to day operations of the Athletic Department. They are also not involved in matters pertaining to the coaching staff or the team selection process.

Annual Golf Outing

The Athletic Boosters are responsible for one Fund Raising Event – The Ursuline Academy Golf Outing. This Outing will be held on Monday, May 20, 2019 at O’Bannon Creek Golf Club. To ensure the success of the UA Golf Outing we need all families involved with the Athletic Program to get involved.

UA Spirit Wear

The other form of raising funds and providing spirit for our Athletic Program is the UA Booster Apparel Committee. This committee purchases and organizes the selling of UA Apparel throughout the school year.
