We thank you for the support of this organization, and encourage all families to play a part in educational athletics!

Athletic Booster Events
Each year the Athletic Booster Club provides a significant amount of money and goods to our student-athletes, our coaches, our sports fields and courts, and our school. Educational athletics would not exist in its current standing if it were not for the BD Boosters! The Athletic Booster’s sponsor three large events each year to continue their work for kids—the Golf Outing, the Euchre Tournament, and the 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament.
Golf Outing: The golf outing is held in May at our hoe course—Raisin Valley Golf Club--and is a great kick-off to the spring season. Teams from all across southern Michigan come together to play 18 holes of golf, participate in a silent auction, have dinner, and see our student athletes as they take to the course to sell miscellaneous items and run hole events. This is one of our biggest events of the year and a wonderful time is had by all!
Euchre Tournament: The euchre tournament is held in February at the Deerfield Legion. The tournament is an evening event that results in lots of friendship and fun. This non-competitive evening offers a chance for any player to enjoy—even those learning the game! Come out and bring your quarters!
3-on-3 Basketball Tournament: Kids of all ages (elementary-high school) travel to Britton Deerfield each year to enjoy this fast-paced, action packed day! Team competition breaks mid-day for a 3 point contest, free throw contest and some great concession stand goodies! We also offer shirt sales to commemorate the event and trophy’s for our winners in each division and contest! This is a highly anticipated event each and every year!
Concessions: The Athletic Boosters work to ensure we have a great selection of concession stand food and goodies at every athletic event. Parents can earn reductions in their child’s Pay to Participate costs each season by working the concession stands at home events. Each sport season, a sign up is placed on the school website and the BD Athletic Boosters Facebook page. We are always in need of more help! Please be sure to sign-up quickly so we have coverage for every event.
