The Benson TechBoosters is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting spirit and support for Benson Polytechnic High School Athletics and assisting the athletic department and teams with fundraising to support student athletes and enhance the athletic program.
According to the National Athletic Trainers Association Student athletes manifest stronger peer relationships, better attachment with adults, higher self-esteem, a closer sense of family, and participate more in volunteerism. They are less likely to engage in high risk behavior. They have a greater sense of initiative, persistence and personal responsibility.
The Center for Disease Control conducts a survey every two years that studies 25 risky behaviors of high school students has concluded that participation in high school sport reduces the risk of students using drugs, alcohol, or tobacco, and their likelihood of carrying a weapon. The survey also concluded that participation in high school sports significantly reduces the risk of suicidal behaviors.
Benson has 415 athletes competing on 35 teams in 21 sports registered through the Oregon School Athletics Association. According to PPS annual report 40% of these student athletes are receiving some type of scholarship to enable participation. To make that possible we need the support of you, our neighborhood and school community.
