... all for the Spartans!
The Turpin Athletic Boosters enhance the athletic experience of all our student-athletes. We work together with our Athletic Department and coaches to build on the outstanding athletic tradition of Turpin High School.
Our goals are to encourage participation in athletics at THS, promote the highest level of sportsmanship amongst our athletes, increase student attendance at all Turpin Athletic events, and to provide financial assistance for the benefit of all athletic programs at Turpin.
Become an active member by attending a booster meeting and find out how you can help. Booster meeting are held on the second monday of every month in room B301 at THS. And thank you for your continued support of the Spartans!
Why should I join Turpin Athletic Boosters?
We know Booster membership is expensive. District fees and Athletic “Pay to Play” fees cover only the most basic needs of our student athletes: Coaches’ salaries, equipment and uniforms, transportation, officials. Athletic Boosters provides facility improvements that benefit all students, including Band members and student fans, along with parents and community supporters. We believe that these efforts elevate the overall image of Turpin High School and Forest Hills School District within Anderson Township and beyond. Our goal is to provide a first class experience for all Turpin students, student athletes, band members and fans. Quality facilities also benefit the school district via increased facility rental fees for community organizations.
Gold Pass and Gold Pass Plus memberships include admission to all regular season home games for all sports at both Turpin and Nagel, along with other benefits listed on the membership form. The $50 Spartan Supporter level is great for families who don’t need gold passes and for grandparents and alumni wanting to support our students.
Lastly, ALL money collected by Boosters is used solely for Turpin Athletics.
What does my Booster Membership Fee fund?
Last year, Boosters funded stadium press box renovations, new stadium sound system and scoreboard, cheerleading “run through” banner, Senior awards, Senior banners, and concession stand renovations.
Recently, Boosters also purchased new scoreboards for baseball and swimming, baseball & softball field renovations, new gym bleachers, tennis storage shed, weight room equipment, track/CC tent, soccer nets, football headsets, a new Golf cart to transport fans and equipment to fields, and equipment for concessions.
This year, (at a minimum) Boosters will fund Coaches’ clinics, training room supplies, weight room equipment, Athletic lobby monitors, Hall of Fame signage, Locker room renovations, concession equipment and architecture plans for future outdoor renovations. Again, all dollars stay at Turpin.
Can I join Athletic Boosters if my kids don’t play sports?
Absolutely! As mentioned above, Boosters benefits all Turpin students, either directly or indirectly.
Can I get a single Gold Pass for my student?
Yes. They are sold for $85 through the Turpin Athletic Office.
If I purchase Gold Passes through Boosters, how/when will I get my passes?
Orders received by August 14 will be distributed at Meet the Team Night on August 16. All others will be mailed.
Where can I get more information?
