Sponsorship at the surface is often measured in dollars and cents but when looked at with a deeper perspective sponsorship is equal to opportunity. Hot Line is a proud sponsor of Sparta Youth Hockey!
For a non profit association such as SYHA whose financial income is 20% fundraising and sponsorship, every dollar given to sponsoring the organization is an opportunity that would not be present without it. Sponsors provide opportunities to play the sport, work with appropriate training tools, and help the association with its link to the community (trainers for open skates). Without our sponsors we could not operate our rink.
In this situation sponsorship also lends itself to belonging. Team shirts increase team unity and friendships. The identity of these players is made up of many aspects…. school, faith, family, friends, and SPORTS. In a world where personal relationships is getting harder to create and maintain sports teams and the friendships that are made on the ice become an even more important aspect of who these players will become as adults.
