The "U"-Club was established to carry on the University High School's tradition of athletic excellence. The U-High Athletic Department is committed to securing support for its athletic programs and enriching the experience of student-athletes.
The "U"-Club provides the extra support needed to enhance the University High School Athletics. The Club funds spirit activities for students and provides special financial support for the 350 athletes participating in varsity and middle school sports. This allows coaches to purchase needed items, which would fall outside the normal operating budget. Most importantly, the club represents the alliance between parents, administrators, coaches, and friends of U-High in supporting the U-High Athletic Department.
Though the University Laboratory School Foundation will facilitate the "U"-Club Membership Drive, all funds collected through this program are dedicated exclusively to athletic programs. Foundation Development Funds, including but not limited to those raised through the Annual Appeal, impact all students (a complete list of items/programs funded through the Annual Appeal is available by contacting the Development Office) with a much broader range of responsibility including the arts, academics, and physical education. The Annual Appeal kicks off in September each year.
Funding for the Cubs athletic program comes completely through gate receipts, concession sales, and the generous support of the Lab School community and friends of the school. Support of athletics at U-High is truly a worthy endeavor and will touch literally hundreds of lives each year. Please help support our tradition of excellence and give generously. Go Cubs!
