Athletic Booster Club
Manlius Pebble Hill’s Athletic Booster Club (ABC) is a parent volunteer organization dedicated to enhancing the experience and enjoyment of athletics by the entire MPH community – our student athletes, fellow students, families, alumni, faculty, and friends of the School. All MPH parents are considered members of the ABC and are invited to become involved in ABC activities and programs.
What We Do
The ABC supports MPH athletics by accommodating needs that cannot be met by the School’s operating budget alone. It has providing funding for field maintenance and the purchase of training equipment requested by coaches, for instance, and has underwritten the cost of sports clinics for both athletes and coaches. The organization has funded special programs designed to introduce Lower School children and their families to the fundamentals of specific sports. Financial support provided by the ABC also helped build the athletic trophy case located in the School’s main lobby.
The Athletic Booster Club spearheaded creation of the MPH Weight Room and Orso Body Shop, which houses weight training and exercise equipment, much of it purchased by the ABC. The equipment is available to students in physical education classes and those engaged in both sport-specific training and general exercise.
These types of efforts are possible through voluntary donations by the many parents and friends who support MPH sports. Donations to the ABC include both those in support of the general athletic program and those that are sport or team-specific. The club, in addition, has for many years operated the MPH Wiener Wagon, a concession business that sells pizza, drinks, and other snacks at home athletic games.
Parents of students in all divisions are warmly encouraged to volunteer with the MPH Athletic Booster Club, as the success of the Athletic Booster Club depends upon the continued participation and support of MPH families and friends.
