Manassas Park Community Center Athletics Specialist Mike ArringtonAttention Attention!!!! The Biddy Ball Basketball league has entered the world of sponsorships. That is correct, the powers that be and I have decided it is time to move our league into an exciting new phase, seeking out responsible people and organizations to become sponsors of our league.

What does the Biddy Ball League get out of it? Well … Money, of course. What youth sport program doesn’t need funding? No matter the sport, there’s always equipment, supplies, officials, plus a laundry list of expenses that have to be paid. As one of the least expensive leagues in the DMV area we have to explore creative ways to sustain the program long term as our numbers continuously increase year after year. This is a major reason why sponsorships are so vital and why we are adding this opportunity to our program.

So what do parents and businesses get out of it? Sponsoring our program helps keep the cost of the program low. Player participation fees cover some of the costs but support from sponsors provides additional resources which can help keep participation fees low. With lower fees, more families are able to sign up and that means more children being able to receive the many benefits of our league. Businesses sponsoring a player or the program get an opportunity to increase awareness of their company’s products and services. Our sponsorship packages are a directly engaging way to market your brand with a multitude of perks at every level. Parents like to see which companies are supporting local sports. With a successful basketball league sponsorship program we can look to offer other athletic leagues and programs. How about a lacrosse program? Running clubs? Flag football? Special needs sports programs? It’s a win-win situation, and oh how I love win-win situations.

How does one get in on this exciting sponsorship opportunity? It’s easy. You can stop by or contact us at the community center and we can gladly provide you with information and a list of sponsorship levels that will complement both your generosity and your budget. Also, share this post with the leaders in your community, friends, your workplace and businesses that you think would like to be actively involved in bettering our community and our youth sport programs. Why? The more people and organizations we attract, the more sponsorships funds that will become available to us to take our programs to new and exciting levels. I hope you can sense my excitement and explore this worthwhile opportunity!

Until next time!
