BW Athletic Association (BWAA)

The Bishop Walsh Athletic Association is a group of parent volunteers who are charged with providing all necessary funding for the Bishop Walsh student to participate in the sport of his or her choice. This is accomplished through different fundraising events held throughout the year such as the fall ad campaign, Spaghetti Dinner and Dance, Cash Bash, as well as revenue from athletic fees and concession stand revenues and gate sales.

Current board consist of:
 Mark Jackson - President
 Mark Eanes - Vice President 
 John Treadwell - Treasurer 
 Rebecca Eanes - Secretary

Athletic Association holds quarterly meetings. Look for dates in the Bishop Walsh’s daily bulletin.
