Catbackers is the “all sports” booster organization for The Westminster Schools. Membership into the Catbackers is open to anyone with an interest in Westminster athletics. Fans who enjoy watching Westminster teams compete are already Catbackers.

- Selling spirit items at school events
With money raised, Catbackers:

- Host an annual appreciation picnic for coaches and their spouses
- Co-sponsor with PAWS the annual Pigskin Picnic and the Winter and Spring Spirit Picnics
