Tornado Club

Make your plans to join one of McCallie School’s most fun organizations while supporting our athletics programs at the same time.

The McCallie Tornado Club is the athletics booster club that provides our students, athletes and coaches encouragement, promotion and financial assistance through membership, game attendance, involvement and volunteerism. The benefits allow you and your family the opportunity to be part of a special group who love Blue Tornado Athletics and are on board with the vision to take Athletics to the highest levels.

Last year, Tornado Club members played an integral role in hospitality for the McCallie Invitational Wrestling Tournament and the McCallie Dr Pepper TEN Classic basketball event. They put in valuable hours in concession stands at several of our athletic venues. And revenue generated from the Tornado Club provided financial support for the new indoor golf center, necessary equipment for the weight room and the training room, covered fees and travel for professional development conferences for coaches and staff and provided resources for team banquets and events.

This year, the goal is 300 family memberships. Possible projects the leadership has its sights set on are upgrading the Spears Stadium concession stand and adding branded windscreens to a few facilities.

The Tornado Club impacts the entire athletic program and all teams -- nearly 800 McCallie Middle School and Upper School athletes. The support of the Tornado Club keeps McCallie Athletics on track in providing a championship experience for the entire school community.

For 2018-19, we are offering a new young alumni level of membership for those from the Classes of 2009-2018. To read about the various membership levels and their benefits, please download the brochure.
