Sports organizers can use TeamSnap to easily collect youth sports donations across all of your programs.
Sports organizers face a set of unique challenges in 2023. It’s more expensive for athletes to play than ever before. Administrators also face increased competition from additional sports and league offerings and the ever-growing demands of parents wanting the best for their kids.
One of the best ways to stand your club or league above the rest is a community-first mindset. This community-first approach can be accomplished through creative offerings (for example, co-ed divisions) or doing whatever you can to make programs more affordable and accessible to every athlete involved.
Striking a balance between affordable offerings and rising costs is an obstacle, especially without help. But sports managers, especially on the youth level, must take advantage of donations.
Sports and youth sports are expensive. That’s why the creation of donor programs or one-time donations is such a smart move for administrators.
Luckily, the world is full of generous people who are willing to partake. It may be the team’s parents or outside constituents who want to ensure a robust youth sports program thrives in their community. TeamSnap makes the collection of donation payments easy.
TeamSnap recommends using our registration software to set up an ongoing donor program or a one-time in-season donation registration. People want to give donations and support their local organizations. You’d be surprised just how many people are willing to help out!
You’re building up your marketing lists, you’re building up your supporters (whether they are local or regional), and you’re building up your organization as a whole.
Another helpful donation tip – put something substantial behind your donations. You may be saving up for new uniforms, a new scoreboard, or an end-of-the-year event. Let everyone know exactly what they’re signing up for.
TeamSnap recently discussed the collection of donation payments in our on-demand webinar, 5 Ways to Collect Payments and Increase Your Sports Organization’s Bottom Line. You can check out a full version of this on-demand webinar below.
