HIGHLANDER BASKETBALL REBOUNDERS CLUB
The Woodlands High School Rebounders Club is a non-profit organization consisting of parents of students who participate in the high school basketball program. We raise funds to supplement The Woodlands Basketball programs (7th-12th) by providing scholarships to graduating seniors in addition to other ways to enhance the experience for all players, coaches and parents. The Rebounders Club is committed to supporting the student athletes and the needs of the program.
As the Rebounders Club relies solely on the voluntary hours and donations of parents, we encourage all to support the program by donating your time and/or through monetary contributions. You can support by joining one of many committees below, serve on the board, sign up for concessions during home games, donate food and time during hosted tournaments, volunteer to be a team mom/dad, host team dinners or help with special events (such as the parade) and many more. By joining the SPORTS YOU APP (instructions below), you will stay connected to all communications regarding games, events, and highlights.
