Who We Are:
Albany Athletics Boosters (AAB) are a dedicated group of coaches, parents, administrators and Albany community members supporting all athletes and athletic programs at AHS and AMS.
Fundraise to support all sports programs and increase Albany sports spirit, maintain a quality athletic program and support our 1,200 student athletes and 25+ sports programs.
It takes $345,000 every year to sustain our current Albany Athletic Program. Albany Unified School District provides $193,000, and we anticipate this number will decrease in the next few years.
AAB’s goal is to raise more than $180,000 to help pay for equipment, uniforms, coach salaries, tournament fees, referees, and transportation to support our Albany student-athletes.
Together, we can help keep Albany School Athletics an integral part of our thriving community.
AAB General Meetings:
Monthly - 2nd Wednesday (during school year)
Men's Basketball took the dub 52-43 against Terra Linda, and the Women's Soccer Squad tied El Cerrito 3-3.
These fine organizations make what we do possible. Please show your support to these amazing sponsors and thank them for their commitment to Albany Athletics Boosters. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Click here to learn more about our current sponsors.

We have a few graduating board members and are looking for a volunteer for the Secretary/communication role this year.

We cannot offer these terrific sports opportunities for our 1200 student-athletes in 25+ sports programs without your support. AUSD's Athletics budget cannot cover the $345,000 every year it takes to sustain our Athletics program, so AAB's goal is to raise $180,000 annually. However, with seasons cut short last year and the cancellation of major fundraisers, instead of raising this amount, we had a loss of $40,000. We need your help to ensure our students can continue to enjoy school sports-- please consider a charitable donation to AAB at https://www.goalbanyathletics.org/donations. Thank you
I look forward to updating you with further details once they become available.
Welcome to Albany High School Athletics! We are excited to provide your son/daughter with an opportunity to develop physically, mentally and emotionally while participating on one of our interscholastic athletic teams. We trust it will be a positive experience that he/she will never forget.
Albany High School teams are members of the Tri Counties Athletic League (TCAL) in the North Coast Section (NCS) of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). The CIF governs all high school athletics in California.
Athletic administration and coaches uphold the purpose of our Athletic Code of Conduct which is to promote the idea of healthy competition and to set standards of good sportsmanship for everyone involved. Albany High School, along with all other TCAL schools, subscribe to the tenets of Pursuing Victory with Honor.
Athletics play an important part of Albany High School. Students learn a great deal from their participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program. Athletics also play an important role in helping the individual student develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition adds to our school spirit and helps all students - spectators as well as participants - develop pride in their school.
Shutting down in March 2020 meant that we missed out on our two major fundraisers-- Pasta Dinner & Cake Auction and the Albany Triathalon, as well as player contributions for the rest of the year. While the donations stopped, our expenses did not, and at the end of 2020 the Albany Athletics Boosters was over $40,000 in the negative.
We don't want our student athletes to return to school and find out that their sport is cancelled due to lack of funds. We don't want to tell them we can only field 1 team instead of the usual 2 or 3 because we don't have the money to pay for coaches. We don't want to tell them they can't play games because we can't afford to rent a bus for travel.
Albany Athletics Boosters is a non-profit group of parents and teachers whose goal is to raise funds to provide our Albany community with the best possible access to quality athletic experiences. We are the 2nd largest fundraiser in AUSD after School Care.
While the district covers the cost of most head coaches and some transportation, the Albany Athletics Boosters pay for EVERYTHING ELSE-- Athletic and strength trainers, extra coaches, uniforms, about half of the transportation needs, and equipment. We also support as much capital improvement as possible.
We never want to say “no” because when we do, it means a child will be missing out on the best possible athletic experience. Athletics is a crucial part of our children's educational and personal growth experiences. Many life lessons are learned through sports and the list of benefits is very long.
Please help support your sport and donate to the Albany Athletics Boosters! Thank you.
