The Buford Athletic Club (BAC) welcomes you to the 2018-19 athletic year! Would you please consider becoming a member of the BAC? Many of you have a long tradition of BAC membership, so please know how much we appreciate and value your support. This letter will explain our purpose and some of what we do to support our student-athletes and coaches in Buford City Schools.
The Buford Athletic Club is made up of parents and friends of the athletes and coaches at Buford High School and Buford Middle School. The meetings occur quarterly in the fall, winter, spring, and summer. The main objectives of the BAC are to provide funding for ALL SPORTS and to offer support to our players and coaches during the entire athletic year.
