About Lakewood Athletic Boosters - The Lakewood Athletic Boosters is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to supporting student-athletes in the Lakewood City Schools district. Since its inception, the Boosters have donated over a million dollars to the Lakewood City Schools Athletic Department. The Boosters donate at least $60,000 annually to subsidize the Athletic Department’s annual budget. In addition, at least eight $500 scholarships are awarded each year to graduating seniors. In recent years, the Boosters have also donated extra funds to purchase items such as a new timing board at the LHS pool, spin bikes for off-season conditioning, and new wrestling mats. Lakewood’s $75 per sport pay-to-participate fee is one of the lowest in the area. Athletic Booster members who volunteer earn “Booster Bucks” to offset or even eliminate their pay-to-participate fee.
