Paly has over 1200 students who participate in at least one sport at Paly. We field 53 teams in a variety of sports including, badminton, water polo, cross country, football, golf, basketball, track & field, volleyball, swimming & diving, baseball & softball, soccer, tennis, wrestling and lacrosse! In the past decade alone, Paly has brought home 5 State Championships and many CCS titles. Our ongoing goals are to provide Paly Athletes with the best equipment, recruitment of top-notch coaches and the best facilities possible to ensure continued success on the field, court or in the pool.
Sports Boosters actively raises money to supplement the Athletics budget at Paly. Several years ago our role changed dramatically when PAUSD eliminated all funding for Athletics except coaching stipends. The operating budget for Paly Athletics is approximately $410K. These funds are raised through contributions from the athletes and their families and Sports Boosters fundraisers like the Snack Shack, holiday tree lot , Booster Passes and the annual golf tournament. Sports Boosters raises money for ALL non-coaching costs needed in order to run and manage ALL of our sports programs at Paly. This includes: uniforms, equipment, transportation fees, officials, tournaments and awards.
How can you help?
Make a participation donation ($200 suggested) via your Coach during the season or help support Paly Athletics with an tax deductible donation! Donations may be mailed or dropped off at the school office (50 Embarcadero Rd., Palo Alto 94301.) Thanks!
If want to attend a meeting, the booster club meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
