Booster Clubs exist in a cooperative effort with the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORD Commission) to promote, maintain, and support an enthusiastic interest in the various programs, activities, and needs of the NORD center/playground.
Booster Clubs are essential to NORD programming because it is impossible for NORD to assume the total financial responsibility for these expenses at every center and playground in the City.
The primary purposes of a Booster Club are to provide a supportive and encouraging atmosphere that promotes community involvement, personal growth and an enhanced quality of life; and to augment existing programs at NORD centers and playgrounds by assisting in coaching teams, purchasing awards, providing uniforms, equipment, and other necessary items; and to assist in maintenance of the facility.
NORD has established policies and procedures to be adhered to by all NORD personnel, volunteers, Booster Club members and volunteer coaches, and they are fully detailed in the documents linked to this page.
Membership in the Booster Club is open to parents, guardians, and family members of children registered to participate in activities and programs, and any individuals without participating children who want to support that center or playground.
Booster clubs agree to ensure that any and all persons eligible will be bound by NORD rules and will have the opportunity to participate in all activities held at the center or playground, or sponsored by the organization, regardless of age, race, religion, color, disability, national origin, financial status, or sexual orientation.
