Tartan Backers

The Tartan Backers Association is Galloway’s athletics booster and volunteer service organization that is organized separately from the Parents Association. Its goal is to support Galloway’s Athletic Department, its sports teams and all student-athletes. Tartan Backers work to build community among athletes and fans by coordinating special events like the sports banquets, senior nights, cookouts and pre-game celebrations, in addition to operating the concession stands, selling Gallowear spirit merchandise, and serving as team parents and coaches. Any excess funds raised by Tartan Backers are used to support the needs of Galloway athletics.
