2019 FOOTBALL 101

The LNE Football Booster Club (LNEFBC) needs your help​!!


Lincoln Northeast is known for being a very unique school in Lincoln. The Rockets are known for their community support.
Others schools can only wish they had the support of their community like we do. We are a family. You are that support
that makes this all happen. The best way to provide support is by paying your Bus/Meal Fee. Installments are accepted if
this helps your family.

Many do not realize this but the district does not pay for any in town bussing. This includes to Seacrest/Beechner or other
Lincoln Public Schools. A trip to any school in town will cost us approximately $260.00 per bus. ​Bus fees this year alone
will be approximately $3,680. ​The only other option would be to drive your child yourselves and not ride as a team. This
could be at 2:30 in the afternoon when you would need to take off of work or arrange for a ride. Bus/Meal Fees alone do not
cover in-town bussing and out of town meals completely but are much needed to help in covering the cost. 10th-12th
Players’ fee is $100, with a 20% discount ($80) if paid by Booster Blastoff (8/19/19). Freshmen players’ fees are $60, with a
20% discount ($48) if paid by Booster Blastoff. ​ If you would like to visit with someone privately about other options of
paying fees, please contact Kari Wiegert at 402-429-9606 or kwiegert01@gmail.com.

ATHLETIC ROCKET RECOVERY


This is an AWESOME opportunity for our athletes who may need academic assistance. Athletes with two or more failing
grades are required to attend our Athletic Study Hall each day before they report to practice. Once they have raised
grades to passing then they no longer need to attend. Grades are checked daily for students that are placed on the
academic report so their success is quickly identified.

SPORTS PACKETS
These have all the information you will ever need to be involved in athletics at Northeast. This includes physical forms, an
Athletic Booster Club Membership form, and many other forms deemed important by the District office. The athletic office
is encouraging all families to complete all forms and physicals in a timely manner. Please complete the forms and return it
to the Northeast athletic office. ​Reminder- Physicals must be dated after ​May 1, 2019​.

THE ATHLETIC BOOSTER CLUB (LNEABC) MEMBERSHIP​ ​(individual or business)


It is important to recognize the difference between the Football Booster Club and the Athletic Booster Club. The Football
Booster Club supports everything mentioned above but only for football. The ABC supports larger ticket items for all
sports. Examples include equipping the new weight room, replacing scoreboards in the gyms and football field, buying
video and training room equipment. They do things like this for every sport!
The ABC pays for many major items for all Northeast athletics that are extremely expensive but necessary. Your
membership in the ABC is equally as important to support your athlete and Lincoln Northeast athletics. Membership for
the Athletic Booster Club is as low as $25 for the year. With this membership you will receive 10% off your athletic pass
and a window cling to proudly show your support. This membership can be purchased with the form located in your
packets, online at ​http://lneabc.org/support/​ or at the Booster Blast Off pep rally in August. Please, strongly consider
being an ABC member!
ATHLETIC PASSES
These range in price depending on single sport season or full year pass. Get a discount on these passes when you
become an LNE Athletic Booster member. These are good at all non-tournament games within the city limits. ​This is a
GREAT BUY especially if you have a multiple sport athlete!​ Your student will also have the opportunity to purchase
an athletic pass in late July to be placed on their ID badge. You can buy your pass at the Athletic Department Office
during office hours or at the August Booster Blastoff.

WE NEED YOUR PARTICIPATION AND MEMBERSHIP!


Your participation in Bus/Meal fees, memberships and volunteering in booster club events is the only thing that will make
this machine run. There is no better way to support your athlete. Our next meeting is Wednesday, June 5th at 6:00 pm in
the Pit. Enter through door #27. Please come! Everyone is welcome! If you have any questions, please contact any
Booster member.
