  1. Revise and send initial sponsor contact email.
  2. Review sponsor contracts as a class.
  3. Each person completes the Sponsor Contacts spreadsheet for their sponsor(s).

Wednesday, August 16, 2017



All 3rd hour sponsors are highlighted yellow.
All 4th hour sponsors are highlighted green.
Each student will select a company sponsor to be responsible for this year from the color for your hour. If it says (double) next to the sponsor name, that means the student who picks one of those companies will be responsible for 2 sponsors instead of one.

You will INDIVIDUALLY be held responsible for the following with each sponsor:

  • weekly communication
  • social media promotions
  • confirming contract requirements are met in each game script
  • planning, designing and maintaining equipment for any in-game contests
  • one sponsor presentation
  • inviting and escorting sponsors to quarterly recognition events
  • ensuring required signage is in place at all athletic fields

Let's draw numbers and get started! Open the Sponsor Contact Info spreadsheet to prepare for our sponsor draft.


Please take this quick survey to help with team selection for this year!
