  • Pollard Boosters LogoAthletic Gap is a way for your kids to stay at school (supervised) until game time on days when Pollard has home games.  (READ: one less trip for you to make shuttling your kid!) The cost for Athletic GAP is $2, and does not include the admission price to the game. Softball and soccer games are free admission. Basketball games cost $3. The Boosters Club sells concessions at games, so your child may want to bring extra money for that as well.
