About Us


Who Are We?

The Jackson Sideliners is a booster club for the Jackson Township Polar Bears Football Program. 

The organization is made up of parents (or other influencing figures) committed to providing support, both financially and volunteer hours to assist the school, coaching staff and players.


When & Where Do We Meet?

Currently, the Jackson Sideliners (male influencers) and Jackson Mama Bears (female influencers) meetings are Mondays at 6:30pm at the High School. The Sideliners meet in the Lecture Hall and the Mama Bears meet in the Library on the second floor above the Commons.

The groups meet once a month in the spring, twice a month during the summer, and every week during the football season.


What Do We Do?

The Jackson Sideliners routinely provides a wide variety of support for the football program at Jackson High School. 

Previous activities have included the purchase of turf for the field, the scoreboard, Polar Bear inflatable head, new end-zone camera, and contributions to fund the new game uniforms. We also develop and print the game programs, coordinate team refreshments, sell donuts after the games, and much, much more.
