The award-winning Highline High School Drill Team is seeking Sponsors, and here’s how YOU can help:

Go Pirates! The Highline High School Drill and Dance team has long been known as a competitive and spirited team.

Longtime Drill Team Coach Helena Caldwell is a devoted mentor to her students instilling commitment, responsibility and enthusiasm that these young people can carry with them long into their futures.

The team practices hours weekly and performs at assemblies and a host of games and competitions throughout the year. Not to mention also performing at a variety of community events, such as the Burien Fourth of July parade. Everyone benefits from the smiles and amazing spirit they exude.

Unfortunately, Drill Team is expensive and not all of the families on their team can afford the cost.

They ask for sponsorship to help subsidize the cost of new equipment/apparel, scholarships for players who can’t afford to play, and travel expenses.

This year they are repeating their successful fundraising program, inviting local businesses and families to sponsor their team. Now is your chance to pay a little something forward to support wholesome and healthy activities that help inspire and engage these Burien teens in positive pursuits!

Sponsoring the team is not only a great way to get involved with the community; it’s an amazing form of marketing for your business. They will be creating a 4’x8’ banner featuring the team and sponsor logos to be hung at their performances. Hundreds of people from all over the PNW come to various performances and will have the opportunity to see your logo associated with their team.

Sponsorships are very affordable starting at just $100.00 topping out at $300.00. In exchange, sponsors receive the following:

    • $300 sponsors will have a larger logo for their business on the banner.
    • $200 sponsors will have a smaller logo for their business on the banner.
    • $100 sponsors will have their name/business name printed on the banner.

Oodles of Good Karma points and the satisfaction of knowing they are making the Highline community a better place to live.

Coach Helena says:

“Thank you for your continued support. It means so much to our team to know that the community is behind us.”

The team has organized two ways to participate:

    • Auction Item Donations
      If having your logo on their banner is not something that you are interested in but you want to support the team, they will be hosting a Dance/Drill competition December 3rd at Highline High school and are looking for people to donate goods or services to be raffled off to help raise money for the team. If this is a better option for you please let them know!
    • Banner sponsorship deadline is Nov. 26
      To sponsor The Highline Drill Team, and have your business be on theirr banner at one of the three levels please fill out this form:

They ask that this be done no later than Nov. 26, 2022 so they can place their order for the banner and have any raffle donations the week prior to their competitions.

They will be collecting your donations from you directly, so please look out for communication to coordinate a pickup time.

If you have any questions, please contact Coach Helena at

And be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022 when they will be hosting a dance competition in their new school gym.
