Our mission is to socially support and raise funds for the enhancement and expansion of the Sandy Creek Highschool Volleyball Program. We accomplish this through fundraising, donations, sponsorships and volunteerism. We want to make playing volleyball for Sandy Creek High School a positive life experience for all our players and future Lady Patriots to come.
We know that Sandy Creek Highschool is not only an excellent academic institution but a haven for great student athletes. We ask that you attend as many of the varsity and junior varsity games as possible and support our females athletes by wearing Patriot Blue and Battle Red. We also welcome any adult or student volunteers that would like to line judge, keep score, chant, cheer or assist the team in anyway.
The Sandy Creek High School Booster Club is a volunteer organization composed of parents, coaches, and others in the community who are interested in contributing socially and fiscally to support the Sandy Creek Lady Patriots volleyball program.
