Dear Okoboji Pioneer Supporter:
The Okoboji Pioneer Booster Club is proud of our student athletes, and with your help, we are providing continued support for our Okoboji school athletic programs.  The accomplishments of our student athletes during practices, the regular season, and at state events are tremendous, and we applaud their efforts! Our Booster Club continues to serve and support ALL our students with Proud Pioneer Tradition.  We do this by setting aside a percentage of our membership drive funds that can be used by the school to support ALL programs, including speech, drama, music, debate, etc.  In addition to those programs being supported, the OPBC provides financial and volunteer support for all athletic programs at the middle school and high school levels to enhance their respective sports and their overall athletic experience.  The 2021-2022 school year was very exciting for our Booster Club, and we want to share with you some of our accomplishments:

  • Provided funds toward camp for the girls and boys basketball, and wrestling teams.
  • Supported the strength and conditioning program by providing VOLT software application and purchasing t-shirts given to 64 OHS Ironman/Ironwoman qualifiers.
  • Purchased uniforms for the girls basketball, girls track & cross country, boys soccer, OMS football, OMS wrestling, and dance teams.
  • Renewed HUDL subscriptions for the volleyball, football, and basketball coaching staffs.
  • Purchased choreography and music for the dance team.
  • Renewed software subscription for NOAH basketball shooting system.
  • Purchased equipment:
    • Electronic speed training system for the track and cross country teams.
    • Dumbbells and kettlebells for strength & conditioning program.
    • Tackling dummies, helmet covers and stickers for the football program.
    • Pitching machine and “Queen of the Hill” trainer for the softball team.
    • Bats for both the baseball and softball teams.
    • PuttOut Mat and Pressure Trainer for golf teams
  • Provided a sports preview night for OHS fall sports & end of season banquets for all OMS/OHS athletes.
  • Awarded senior plaques and scholarships to 24 seniors totaling $3,600.
  • Sponsored celebration ads and meal money for our student & team state qualifiers.
  • Contributed $10,000 to the school to support the non-athletic activities and fine arts programs.

Due to the generosity of our community, we were able to support these major projects in the amount of over $45,000!  

In addition to these financial contributions, we volunteer many hours with concession stands, tournaments, Homecoming, tailgates, social media coverage, and so much more!  We strive to make our mission statement a yearly reality:  The Okoboji Pioneer Booster Club will promote leadership, encourage teamwork, and cultivate a strong work ethic among our student athletes.  Along with our teachers and coaches, we will help build programs that represent our school proudly, encourage enthusiasm, and foster sportsmanship and support among our school and community.

We encourage all Pioneer supporters to consider making a financial donation and or volunteer your time!  With your monetary donation your name or business will be placed on the programs for all our activities this school year.  We are looking forward to another highly successful year!

Thank you and Go Pioneers!
