The Fathers Club serves three primary functions: 1) to provide fathers and sons a variety of volunteer activities and fun events to foster close bonds between them, 2) to provide an opportunity for fathers to meet and interact with one another, and 3) to raise money to support MBA’s many programs and activities. The Fathers Club is run by its four officers, one father from each class for 8th grade through 11th grade. Additionally, two father Class Representatives for each grade assist in raising volunteers and running concessions.
Each Fall, the Fathers Club operates the concession stands for all varsity home football games. This fun volunteer opportunity is a great way to meet other dads from your son’s grade. The fast pace of feeding thousands of fans creates an ideal setting for getting to know dads you otherwise might never meet. Plus the concession stand raises significant funds that are given back to MBA.
The Fathers Club also sponsors the Kickoff Breakfast in August of each year. Fathers and sons can come and enjoy breakfast while hearing a preview of the upcoming varsity football season by Coach Euverard.
In March, the Fathers Club conducts the March Madness Bracket Challenge where fathers and their sons can test their skills at predicting the outcome of the NCAA basketball tournament. The winner earns bragging rights and their name embossed on an impressive trophy for all others to admire and envy.
In the spring, the Fathers Club hosts the Red Granbery Memorial Sporting Clays Shoot at the Nashville Gun Club. This father/son event is open to shooters of all skill and experience levels – you can even rent a gun if you don’t have one. Come out and enjoy a few hours networking with other father/son teams while blasting clay targets.
Also in the spring is the Father Son Dinner. This longtime annual event is a high point as we gather to eat barbeque, celebrate fatherhood, enjoy amazing student musical performances, and listen to a topflight speaker.
The Fathers Club Connection focuses on community service and father-son relationship building. Prior events have included the Jim Wellborn letter initiative, ReLeaf Nashville, Last Minute Toy Store, and the Father Son Campout.
We hope you will come and join the Fathers Club in one or more of our events. Roll Red!
