The funds raised through sales are a win-win:

  • For families, ad sales can help offset player donations.
  • For the teams, ad sales raise much-needed funds.

How does it work?

This “yearbook” style Team Guide is a printed magazine honoring the girls and boys programs and their players. For 2016, it will again be produced as a year-end recap of the season — distributed at team banquets! (Advertisers should be made aware of this timing!)

For 2016, two levels of ads with be sold:

  • NAVY SPONSORSHIPS: Most affordable ads.
  • SILVER SPONSORSHIPS: These ads come with the option of sponsor buying a banner that will hang at the stadium all season long!

For each ad sold, a player will receive a rebate equal to 75% back towards their team donation. For example: Sell ad worth $100 and $75 will be rebated against a player’s team donations.

(Note: Ads sold with non-cash payments — gift cards, food, product etc. — will be credited up to 50% of the ad price towards team donations, with the team’s pre-approval required.)

No player can get back as a rebate no more than their team donations.

How do I sell?

  • Approach as many local businesses as you can. Sell them on the importance of athletics at the school and how much their partnership with the team can help. tell them approximately 100 local families will get the Team Guide.
  • Use the forms in the sales kit: THHS Boys Lacrosse Sales Contract FORM
  • If prospective customers would like to see what a Team Guide looks like, email local business owners this link to an online viewer of the 64-page edition: http://bit.ly/14mediaguide!
  • Once you have closed the sale, fill the receipt out and leave it with the business or individual that placed the ad.

Any other sales tips?

Participation in this fundraiser will not impact a player’s standing with their Trabuco Hills Lacrosse team.
  • If they are a retailer, urge them to consider our quarter-page, double-sided coupon pages to be inserted in the Team Guide. Thee will be printed on easy to tear-out, card-stock pages.
  • Our advertisers can also have a flyer, coupon or promotional items included in the 500 gift bags that are given to the 24 teams that participate in the 2015 Sticks & Stones Girls Lacrosse tournament on March 18-19, 2016. This is an added, no-cost bonus to any advertiser. Have them contact us at trabucolacrosse@gmail.com for further assistance.
