The vision of the Burtonsville Panthers Club, Inc. (BPC) is to help support Paint Branch High School Athletics and encourage the growth and development of youth athletics at the middle and grade school levels of the Burtonsville, Maryland community.

 

BPC began several years ago as a group of parents committed to supporting the Paint Branch High School Football Team.  A main club focus has been the sponsorship of a wide range of activities that contribute to the year-round development and operation of the Paint Branch Varsity and Junior Varsity football teams.  These activities have included:

  • Fundraising to assist in the purchase of players’ equipment/attire for off-season Passing League games and tournaments, as well as replacement of Paint Branch team jerseys,
  • Provision of pre-game meals for the varsity team during the football season
  • Coordination of game-day support for the  coaching staff by recruiting and scheduling volunteers to

o   prep the football home field (before our new facilities),

o   serve and prepare pre-game meals,

o   film games,

o   record team/player statistics,

o   work yard & down markers at home games, and

o   provide fruit and Gatorade at halftime for the players

  • Support in acquiring other types of equipment and training to enhance the program
  • Help in communicating information to parents and players.

Beginning in 2012, the Burtonsville Panthers Club enhanced its communications outreach to include a Website to aid in sharing team information with parents, players, coaches, volunteers, and the public.  Additionally, athletic team support provided by the Burtonsville Panthers Club was expanded to include the Paint Branch High School Wrestling Team.

At the end of 2013, the Burtonsville Panthers Club incorporated in the State of Maryland as the Burtonsville Panthers Club, Inc. with an elected Board of Directors and began the process of acquiring 501(c)(3) charitable organization status as a tax-exempt organization. When tax-exempt status has been finalized by the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Maryland, our tax exemption number will be made available to donors and contributions received will be eligible for tax deduction.

The long-term vision of the Burtonsville Panthers Club, Inc. is to not only help support Paint Branch High School Athletics, but to build and encourage the growth and development of youth athletics at the middle and grade school levels of the Burtonsville, Maryland community. With the assistance of corporate and private donations, the club will strive to fulfill its goal to help foster skill development and exercise  for the youth of our area through participation in football, wrestling, and other local sports leagues.
