How to Make Fundraising for Youth Sports Easier

Have you been put in charge of choosing the fundraiser for your youth sports league or team? Do you need to come up with a way to raise money, but you’re worried it will become a big struggle?

There are plenty of ways to make fundraising for youth sports easier. When you’re ready to raise money for a baseball, basketball, football, soccer, or softball team, you need the right tips and the right fundraiser.

Top 3 Tips to Make Fundraising for Youth Sports Easier

1. Don’t Count on Just One Fundraiser

While you might be able to raise the money, you need with one fundraiser, most youth sports leagues will need multiple fundraisers. You can do one big fundraiser each season, but also incorporate other smaller fundraisers at games and at awards banquets.

For example, you can sell custom car magnets for each team as a part of your big fundraiser or as a part of your ongoing fundraising efforts at games. You can also use 50/50 raffles, concessions, and other fundraisers at each game and even at the awards banquet each year.

2. Get Small Businesses Involved

Businesses love to support the community and you can use this to your advantage when fundraising for youth sports leagues. You can have a small business sponsor your custom car magnet fundraiser and cover the cost of the magnets in exchange for advertising at games and other events throughout the season and even in the off season.

You can also get small businesses to sponsor teams within your league. They can pay for the cost of uniforms in exchange for their logo being printed on the uniforms for the team they sponsor.

3. Get the Players Involved

You have a built-in sales force with all the players on each team. When you’re in charge of the fundraiser for your youth sports league, get the players involved. No matter the fundraiser you choose, make sure you get them involved as they should be your sales staff for custom car magnets or the labor at a car wash fundraiser.

Choosing the Right Fundraiser for Youth Sports

While these three tips will certainly lead you in the right direction, choosing the right fundraiser for youth sports will help you raise more money faster. With a good fundraiser for your sports league, you’ll be able to raise the money you need without struggling to sell the product you choose or provide the service you choose.

It’s best to choose a fundraiser you can use every season, such as selling custom car magnets. When you choose the right fundraiser for your youth sports league, you will be able to easily get people involved and raise plenty of money to support the league.

With these three top tips and the right fundraiser for your youth sports league, you’ll be ready to support your league. Get some area businesses involved and make sure you choose the right fundraiser to keep your players excited to participate in your annual fundraiser.

Now, I’m going to digress. I’ve always wondered about the question posed in the following paragraph; is baseball harder to play than softball? I know that I sucked at both. And I don’t want to upset anybody on either side because we make baseball car magnets and softball car magnets for hundreds of teams every year.

Which is harder to play, softball or baseball? This is one of the most important discussions of our times (right behind climate change, right?). I guess that depends on who you ask. Ask a baseball player, and of course fragile masculine pride will make that baseball player claim that hitting a baseball is the hardest thing to do in sports.

But ask a softball player the same question, and pragmatic feminine sensibility will claim that both are difficult, but softball is harder.

And, speaking as a man, I agree with the softball players.

Let’s focus on hitting the pitched ball, just to highlight the most obvious part of the game. I thought that if I did a little research, I could come up with a definitive answer.

Using college baseball and college softball as our metric, here are a few comparisons:

  • Distance from the pitcher’s “mound” is 60.5 feet in baseball and 43 in softball.
  • Average speed of pitched ball is about 90mph in baseball and is about 70mph in softball
  • Time for ball to reach home plate is about .44 seconds for baseball and about .35 seconds for softball

Here’s something that a lot of casual observers don’t take into account. Since the baseball “mound” is raised, and the pitcher usually throws overhand, baseball pitches must follow a downward trajectory. This is consistent and the theory of a “rising fastball” really doesn’t exist. So, gravity gives baseball hitters the chance to compensate by just dropping their hands during the swing.

In softball, the mound really isn’t a mound at all. It is a flat circle the same height as the batter’s box. Factor in that a softball is pitched underhand and the ball is released from the pitcher’s hand about 2 feet off the ground. Therefore, a softball pitch is almost always rising as it races toward the batter. This means that a softball batter must swing with an uppercut and with less reaction time.

Therefore, I’m going to agree with the softball players and conclude that hitting a softball in a college game is harder than hitting a baseball in a college game.

I’ll just sit back and wait for the hate-mail!

Baseball and Softball Fundraising

It’s February! That means that Major League Baseball will be emerging from hibernation soon. Pitchers and catchers will be reporting to Spring Training any day now and soon it will be Baseball Season. February also means it’s time to get serious about fundraising for your kids baseball and softball teams.

Your young sluggers and hurlers will also be reporting for Spring Training, and means that Youth Baseball and Youth Softball diamonds all across America will be ringing with the sound of baseballs colliding with aluminum bats.

Youth baseball and softball, just like almost every other youth sport, is very expensive. I don’t need to tell you how much this is going to cost, because you have probably already received the invoice. But the amount that your team or league asks each family to pay is not the entire amount. There are league and team fees that are paid for by all parents as a group.

To reduce these costs, most teams and leagues run fundraisers all season long (car washes, bake sales, etc.)

Here’s another idea for your fundraising… Custom baseball car magnets is a fundraiser that achieves three goals:

  • It raises a lot of money. You can double or triple your money very easily.
  • It creates a lot of advertising exposure for your team.
  • It makes your kids feel like SuperStars.
