Where Our Funds Go

Hint: Coaching and Team Support

Coaches

Team Support*

Awards Banquet

Youth Soccer Camp

SoccerFest

Miscellaneous

We allocate the largest share of booster funds to help pay for coaching. The school district pays for two coaches: varsity and junior varsity only. Boosters raise funds to help pay for five additional coaches: two varsity assistant coaches as well as coaches for three of the five Washburn soccer teams. Boosters also pay for a summer conditioning program for returning players. A larger share of funds also goes toward team-building and support, such as team meals, activities, and sports gear, as well as for the important end-of-year awards and recognition banquet.

Miscellaneous expenses are a hodge-podge of various expenses, including Awards/Gifts (4%); Website/Programs/Printing and Promotion (3%); Bank/Credit Card Fees and Costs (2%); and general miscellaneous expenses (3%) such as pre-season scrimmage costs, tryouts, and other fees.

Where We Get Our Money

Hint: From Parents and the Community

SoccerFest

Annual Donations

Youth Soccer Camp

Other Miscellaneous

In 2016, the boosters received nearly all of its public support from three main sources: 1) SoccerFest; 2) annual booster donations (from parents, supporters, and the Fuller Soccer Club); and 3) our annual summer youth soccer camp.

The remaining roughly six percent of booster fundraising income came from the sale of banquet tickets (3%); a $20 per player fee for those who participated in the summer conditioning program (3%) and a tiny amount from merchandise/concessions, mostly from Super Soccer Saturday (less than 1%).

Questions?

Send us an email at boosters@washburnsoccer.com if you have any questions about how we raise and use booster funds. Better yet, come to one of our booster meetings to hear our regular financial report and review any income statements and balance sheets (which we can also send you upon request). Just let us know. Thanks!
