Band Booster Club

Stay connected with the SHS Aggie Marching Band through the SHS Alumni Band Newsletter.

The Sylacauga High School Band Booster Organization promotes academic excellence through the support of academically oriented activities and enrichments directed by the Sylacauga High School's Band Director(s) and the Sylacauga City Board of Education.  SHS Aggie Band Boosters meet every third Tuesday of each month in the band room.  The specific meeting time shall be determined at the general meeting in May by officers present (refer to Bylaws of SHS Band Boosters).

The organization assists the band director in stimulating and promoting a quality marching band as well as a quality concert band. We provide financial assistance for the purchase of instruments, music, uniforms, etc. The Boosters provide chaperone duties, staff concession stands, and publicize the band and its functions.

During the Fall of 2006 the boosters assisted the students in their efforts to fund their trip to Orlando where the City of Sylacauga and Sylacauga High School were represented in the Citrus Bowl Parade. We also have our ongoing plan to purchase new instruments and the future purchase and repair of uniforms.

If you are a community business leader or individual, you can help our organization achieve its goals. There are several opportunities available at all levels of sponsorship.

Donations are appreciated and recognized at booster meetings, band functions and/or in our newsletter when published. Halftime show sponsorships are available as well. Multiple games may be purchased by a single sponsor. Sponsors are recognized during halftime and throughout home games over the pubic address system as well as signs posted at each concession stand offering visibility to hundreds throughout the game.

Another opportunity is the band tee shirt printed at the beginning of marching season in September. This tee is designed around the theme of the halftime show and each band member receives one to wear at band functions throughout the year. The back of the shirt has sponsor ads available in different levels of sponsorship from single line items to business card size to the top position in a space as much as ten inches wide.

Our community calendar has been printed for several years. Again, different levels of sponsorship are available. The boosters added a pocket type planner in 2006 which includes all activity listings that the traditional wall calendar has. A single sponsor is given the opportunity to advertise on the planner. The planner and wall calendar have been met with renewed success, and we hope to continue seeing it grow.

There are other ways in the works that businesses and individuals can help. We are entertaining the idea of the purchase of a large utility trailer to carry our equipment to games and competitions. Sponsors who help with the purchase will be recognized with an annually renewable ad posted on the trailer. This project is still in its infancy and more information will be available soon.

The Sylacauga High School Band Booster Organization would like to thank you for your interest. We hope to be able to count on your support.
