It’s hard to believe, but the 2019 – 2020 NBA Rookie of the Year will be playing for a high school team this year. Before he played for his high school team, he probably played for a local rec league or in a local AAU Basketball League. Right now, he’s probably in his drive way practicing his 3 point shot on a hoop his dad installed above the garage door when he was only 5 feet tall.
Basketball is one of the quintessential North American Sports. Invented in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith (who just happened to be Canadian) in Springfield, MA.
Just like every other youth sport, Youth Basketball is not an inexpensive endeavor. Heck, just a pair of the coolest new shoes can set you back $200 And just like every other youth sport there are expenses that the parents need to pay for (uniforms, shoes, coaching, etc.) and there are expenses that the entire team needs to pay (Spoiler Alert… you parents are going to pay for those too!). These team expenses (such as court rental for practice and league games, travel, referees, etc.) add up and the teams usually try to offset these somewhat with fundraising.
I’m not going to sit here and make fun of all of the other lame fundraising ideas out there (just read some of our previous blog posts to see what I’m talking about), but the best fundraiser out there, IMHO, would be a fundraising car magnet customized with your team name and colors.
Think about it, this is an NBA quality magnet, and every car it’s put on will become a rolling billboard for your team. You’ll be just like every other professional team, but without the salary cap.
Here’s another huge plus for the car magnets versus the other fundraisers (I’m looking at you, car-wash) … it adds a ton of fame to the equation. 250 cars with your team’s magnet stuck on the trunk lid is going to create a lot of awareness. Every car with your magnet will be seen by at least a hundred other cars each and every day. Instant street cred. That’s an awesome responsibility, and now you’re going to need to step up your game on the court.
