NCSAA Team Sponsorship Program
We know that money is sometimes an obstacle for teams who want to attend one of our tournament events, and we don't want any team to be unable to participate simply because of a financial issue. In an effort to help teams who need some financial assistance to attend NCSAA tournaments, we have launched a new Team Sponsorship Program. This program can be used to reduce (or even completely cover) your costs of attending an NCSAA tournament.
The Team Sponsorship Program is simple and easy. Each of your team members sends out some sponsorship letters (we provide these) to family and friends. That's it! Any money raised goes directly toward the cost of your trip to the tournament. Teams who have used this program have very successfully decreased their costs of coming to our tournaments -- some even raising enough money to pay for all of their costs!
By participating in the Team Sponsorship Program, you can:
* Eliminate certain tournament costs for your team - If your team participates in the Team Sponsorship Program and stays at the partner lodging facility for an event (if you're coming from out of town), your Individual Athlete Fees for the tournament will be waived completely. There is no requirement for you to raise a certain amount of money in order for those fees to be waived.
* Raise money toward your teams' tournament fees and other expenses (travel, lodging, etc) -- Some teams have successfully raised enough money to significantly reduce (or even eliminate) their costs of lodging, meals, and travel. You might be surprised how much of a help this program can be to your team!
* Find new local business sponsors that might be willing to sponsor your team for future seasons -- We also make available a letter that you can take to local businesses. This not only inreases the amount of money you can raise toward your trip, but also opens up potential new relationships with businesses that might consider becoming a long-term sponsor of your team, athletic program, or school.
If your team would like to use the Team Sponsorship Program to offset the costs of attending, please do the following:
1) Call us at 724-846-2764. We can give you more information about how the Team Sponsorship Program works, and can discuss the availability of direct sponsorship support from NCSAA (if available).
2) We will then send you all of the information you need to use the program. This will include sponsorship letters that your team can use to obtain sponsors. You'll be able to use the sponsorship letters to obtain individual and business sponsors -- a great means of supporting your teams' trip to the tournaments.
The program is simple and is not very time-consuming, and is a very effective tool for making participation in NCSAA tournaments affordable for your teams. Please contact us soon with questions; we'd love to help you in any way that we can!
