Booster Participation

Unlike other high schools, Bellaire Volleyball does NOT require players to pay an athletic participation fee to cover the program costs not paid for by HISD.  Many public high school athletic departments require participation fee as high as $200 to offset 100% of the additional costs to play high school volleyball.  We recognize not all players can afford to participate if Bellaire were to assess such a fee.

Therefore, all players and families are asked to fundraise and participate in the Boosters.  This approach enables Bellaire Volleyball to pay for the additional expenses not covered by HISD while providing a great volleyball experience and remaining compliant with UIL eligibility rules.
Participation in the Booster Club is set at the minimal level of $75.  This minimal amount is 100% passthrough cost of providing players food and snacks at away competitions and the annual banquet. 

Under UIL rules, players can not be given anything of value to participate in athletics; this includes food.  The $75 booster participation fee is the minimum amount needed to cover the cost of food provided  sandwiches, water, snacks provided to players while traveling to away venues and tournaments.  Participating in the Boosters enables Bellaire to remain compliant with UIL rules.

Complete this FORM and provide your payment to any Booster Club Member, Coach Clarke or mail both the form a payment to Bellaire Volleyball, P.O. Box 2415, Bellaire TX 77402.  Checks should be made out to "BHS Volleyball Booster Club."
