OUR HISTORY

The Chap Club was formed several years ago as a way to help fill the gap for our school system to support our student athletes and their coaches as they strive to be the best they can at their sport.

Chap Club is the only Westlake High School booster club and supports all our UIL sports activities. We are parents and community partners who help fund things like team travel, training for coaches, uniforms, equipment, and facility improvements.

Through the support of parents and community partners, we are able to bridge the gap between state funding and the actual needs of our athletic department.

District Funding

Chap Club members and sponsors pay for 75% of the athletic budget for Westlake because a majority of the taxes paid within our district are taken out to fund other school districts.
