The CAB does not recruit athletes to attend the school.
The Athletic Director and the Principal of the school are the only persons charged with the employment, pay scale and dismissal of any members of the coaching staff.

Officers: Officers who are elected to serve the organization are President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The duties of these officers is typical of those in other organizations.
This executive committee has the authority to make decisions for the organization in emergency situations when a full meeting of the membership is not considered practical and an immediate decision is required. Nominations for these offices are made at the March meeting with elections held at the April meeting.
The vast majority of the funds for our operation are derived from ticket sales and concessions. Thus, the success of these operations is therefore most critical to their continued assistance to the Athletic Department.
Meetings: Meetings are held monthly with the exceptions of the months of June, July, and August on dates as selected by the President.
Special meetings are held as called by the President or the Vice President in the absence of the President.
