How To Build A Booster Club Website

by Jim Connelly, founder of BoosterSpark

The hardest parts of building a booster club website are (A) figuring out what content to put on the site, and (B) figuring out how to design, develop, and manage a website. BoosterSpark makes all of that easy, but before we get into shameless self-promotion, let's dive deeper into how to build your booster club website.

Your website visitors will include a wide variety of people. Parents, students, teachers, administrators, local businesses, donors, sponsors, and the general public will all visit your website. Each will want to know a different mix of information about your booster club.

Popular sections on a booster club website include the homepage, fundraisers, events, volunteer opportunities and sign-up forms, spirit wear, schedules, meeting dates and minutes and agendas, awards and scholarships, description of past allocations, how to request funding, mission and bylaws, board and coordinators, contact information, etc.

When BoosterSpark powers your website, you won't need to reinvent the wheel. Simply choose which sections to publish or hide, then create as many pages in each section as needed. Your pages appear automatically in website navigation. You can include images and embedded videos, too. Your website uses a responsive, mobile-friendly design that ensures it will be easy to read and use on any device.
