Friends of Cougar Pride
Anyone who has been awarded at least one varsity letter is eligible to be a member of the "H" Association. The "H" Association's activities include fundraising, regular meetings, socials, and special projects; all designed to serve (1) as a welcoming environment for Cougar letterwinners and (2) as a vehicle to raise and donate funds to Houston Athletics. Some of the opportunities that help foster support for Houston Athletics include the "H" Association Golf Tournament, pre-game tailgates at football games, support of team reunions and the annual all-sports banquet, among other endeavors. The "H" Association also provides over $30,000 annually to Cougar Pride each year.
Houston Athletics wants all fans to be a part of the fun, even the youngest Cougars. Shasta's Squad is for kids 8th grade and younger wanting to be a part of the coolest kids club around. Shasta's Squad members receive great benefits including a birthday card, newsletter and invitations to special events, including the Shasta's Squad kick-off party.
For more information on sport-specific gifts, the "H" Association or Shasta's Squad, please contact Cougar Pride at (713) 743-GOUH (4684).
Funds will be utilized as supplemental monies to the designated sport's current budgetary needs such as summer school, staff and general program upgrades.
Annual sport-specific gifts are tax-deductible to the extent the contribution exceeds the value of any benefits received in return. Please contact your tax advisor regarding this important information. Sport-specific gifts do not count toward Cougar Pride benefits, including seating and parking opportunities. Donors will receive priority points for their gifts.
Coog Crew hosts tailgates before every home football game and have other select tailgates for different sports as well as organizing a road trip to an away football game every year. For only $20, Coog Crew members receive the following benefits:
