The Gill St. Bernard’s Athletic Booster Club provides support for all athletic programs and helps the school offer a first-rate athletic experience for student-athletes. The organization has worked tirelessly and effectively on behalf of our sports programs since its inception in 2003.
In addition to generous financial support, the Athletic Booster Club raises school spirit and awareness of our teams’ efforts throughout the entire community. The team parent program, school-wide spirit days, and post-season celebrations are just a few of the activities sponsored by the club. In addition, the Booster Club manages all concession activity at home athletic contests and sponsors transportation for student fans to selected championship events.
Money raised by the GSB Boosters over the last few years allowed us to complete a substantial renovation of our weight room/fitness center, which now includes state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment, free weights, strength machines, and an audio/video system.
Thanks largely to the generous contributions of club members, our students and faculty now have an incredible new workout facility to use as part of their athletic experience.
Club membership also helped fund the purchase of digital video cameras for our teams, Global Positioning Systems for our buses, Automated External Defibrillators, and scoreboards for our fields and also underwrote overnight travel expenses for our athletes and coaches competing in NJSIAA championship events. Our baseball and softball fields have new outfield fences and the Athletic Center has a new scorer’s table for boys and girls basketball, courtesy of donations made by club members. The Athletic Booster Club subsidizes many of the annual Homecoming festivities (including t-shirts and event programs).
