About the Panther Club

Support School Spirit, P.E. Programs and Athletic Teams

The Panther Club, made up of volunteer parents and guardians, works to foster an environment of school spirit and pride amongst students, athletes, school staff, parents and guardians. With more than 200 members and more than 80 active volunteers, the Panther Club provides stipends for and underwrites year-end sports banquets for all middle and upper school teams. The club sponsors school wide family gatherings at sporting events throughout the year. It provides teamwear for Varsity and JV athletes and athletic shirts for middle school sports participants. Panther Club also provides spirit wear and sports facility upgrades including shade structures, audio equipment, scoreboards and more that benefit all K-12 students and faculty at Poly.
