Booster Club

Overview

The Billings Royals Booster Club is a parent-directed support organization for BALB’s Royals and Blue Jays.  Members are player parents who pay a nominal membership fee and elect a member board of directors.   The club’s primary income sources are member dues and donations.  Generally, no funds are raised from third-party sources. 

The Booster Club works closely with the BALB governing board to help improve the BALB program and implement BALB board directives, but has no decision-making authority regarding program operation.

Club funds are spent on a variety of activities and merchandise to benefit the Royals and Blue Jays, including (as determined annually by the club board):

  • Road-trip recreation, laundry services, and food, snacks, and refreshments
  • Miscellaneous equipment purchases
  • Team-building social gatherings for parents and players, including an end-of-year picnic
  • Team jackets for first-year Royals players
  • Rookie guidance regarding program expectations
  • Gifts for graduating seniors
  • Aid to players with financial needs
  • Communication of feedback from parents and players to the coaching staff, for the purpose of improving the program
  • Funding support for team special needs or projects upon coach request

The club board usually meets 8-10 times a year, and calls a general membership meeting once or twice a year.  Board members are elected in the fall for one-year terms.

All Blue Jays and Royals parents are encouraged to join the booster club and contribute to its mission.
