About

The York High School Athletic Boosters is an organization made up of volunteers who are dedicated to the students and athletes of York High School and the community of York, Maine. We strive to increase awareness of the importance of high school athletics, and bridge the entire community through athletic events. We organize yearlong fundraising efforts, and subsidize items not covered through the YHS Athletic Budget.
