Sports Boosters

The Stevenson Sports Booster Club is a volunteer organization that encourages general community involvement in and support of athletics and athletic-related events at Adlai E. Stevenson High School. Your membership will not only benefit the SHS athletic program, but all student activities. Over the years, the Sports Boosters have made donations well in excess of $1 million and continually provide improvements for the school. (See a list of recent improvements below.)

Sports Booster memberships are $75 for a family of four and guarantee free admission to all regular season home athletic events (excluding the December cheer/pom invitational at SHS). Memberships can be purchased at the Sports Boosters booth at parent open house nights, as well as at home football and basketball games. Boosters also sell spirit wear items at their booth in the Wood Commons during Open House. All proceeds are donated back to Stevenson Athletics.
