About the TEAM Foundation: Established many years ago, the TEAM Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization working steadily and quietly behind the scenes to help the student-athletes at Holmes High School and Holmes Middle School. This has included at times covering college fees to purchasing the Boys Basketball Team’s 2009 state championship rings.  Through multiple fundraising efforts, donations, and grants the TEAM Foundation helped secure funds to renovate the Meinken All-Star Baseball field, completed in 2015, and resurface the field and track at Holmes Stadium, completed in 2017. Currently, the foundation is raising funds for lighting at our girls’ fastpitch softball field along with the maintenance expenses required for proper upkeep at Meinken and the new synthetic field and track at Holmes Stadium along with any future improvements.
