How WE Make a Difference

Grants

Athletic Competition Equipment Grants

Boosters underwrites the cost of equipment, gear and events for our teams and fans. In recent years, Boosters has helped to upgrade weight room equipment, provide heart rate monitors for multiple athletic teams, and provide funding to Scout Nation for supplies that enhance our fans’ experiences at various sporting events. In 2018-2019, Boosters provided nearly $45,000 to upgrade and purchase equipment requested by LFHS Coaches. Over the past few years, each and every LFHS sport has received support from Boosters. Every coach is encouraged to apply for an ACE Grant on behalf of their team on an annual basis.

Athletic Participation Grants

These grants ensure all who want to participate in athletic programs can. In 2018-2019, we awarded 33 students with need-based grants to cover costs including athletic participation fees and additional team and uniform fees.

Coaches’ Professional Development Grants

These grants provide professional development grants to LFHS coaches. By participating in coaching clinics, seminars and other professional development activities, our athletes and coaches grow. Any coach may contact the LFHS Athletic Director for information and an application.

Varsity Team Grants

These grants assist teams in participating in athletic camps and high caliber competitions. Last year, Boosters provided funding for 8 Varsity teams in order for them to offset the cost of attending these events.

Summer Camp Grants 

These grants reimburse LFHS student athletes/parents for up to $150 of their fee for summer camps run by LFHS.

CONCUSSION TESTING

Boosters is proud to fully fund ImPACT™ neurocognitive assessment tools to assist in determining an athlete’s fitness to return to competition after suffering a concussion, as well as support additional injury prevention programs for athletes and coaches.

TEAM SUPPORT

In cooperation with our Team Parent Program, we provide approximately $25,000 per year directly to teams to help offset the costs of team dinners, banquets, senior celebrations, etc. Amounts contributed to teams are directly correlated to a team’s participation in the Team Parent Program, which includes completing parent volunteer hours.

SPIRIT INITIATIVES and RECOGNITION

In addition to supporting athletes and teams and coaches, Boosters celebrates all Scouts fans by supporting Scout Nation and highlighting the achievements of our alumni.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Each year, Boosters recognizes four senior athletes with the Outstanding Senior Athlete Award. These students have demonstrated excellence through their athletic performance, leadership, spirit and sportsmanship as an athlete at LFHS. Four $1,000 awards are given to two outstanding female and two outstanding male athletes. These award winners are prominently displayed on the “Images of Excellence Mural”.
