John Jay Boosters Club

The John Jay Boosters Club is a nonprofit organization formed to support student athletes and the athletic program. The Boosters have contributed to many facility projects over the years at John Jay and recently have helped to fund the following: fitness center improvements (new fitness machines, fitness center fans, training room upgrades, etc.), bleacher-seats for the baseball field, banners, bleachers for tennis courts, strength and conditioning coach, varsity sports room, indoor field rentals, scholarships, and new Cross Country trail, just to name a few.

As the Membership Co-Chairs for the John Jay Boosters Club, we are writing to ask parents of athletes to join the John Jay Boosters Club in support of all teams and athletes. We also want to thank all of you that are current members of the John Jay Boosters Club. The Boosters generate funds in a number of ways: concession sales at games, gate donations at varsity football games, Harlem Wizards game, annual golf outing, spirit wear, donations and membership drives. Joining the John Jay Boosters Club is a great way for you to help support John Jay and all of our student athletes. Our meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the JJHS Health room. All members are welcome to attend, participate and bring new ideas.

The Fall sports seasons are in full swing for our John Jay teams. You’ll hear cheers of “Let’s go Jay” from the bleachers, trailside and poolside; everyone is hard at work. The Boosters are on a mission to promote school spirit and have joined up with Arts Alive to bring music, dance and art to our sporting events. The enthusiasm and support from “The Tribe” is contagious and it makes every sporting event fun for the whole family!

Joining the Boosters Club is easy, visit our website ( for details or by mail to John Jay Boosters Club, P.O. Box, 586, Cross River, New York 10518, and join today!

On behalf of ALL John Jay athletes and teams, we thank you for your consideration and support.

Here’s to another exciting season of John Jay High School athletics! See you there!
