Each year, the VC Warriors program strives to reach as many student athletes as we can who represent all ethnicities and live in the Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. They range in age from 9 to 18 years, receive academic counseling and must meet academic performance expectations. We participate in (3-4) 4-5 month “seasons” of practices, league games and regional tournaments.
Reaching this many children and making a meaningful difference in their lives is invaluable, but somewhat expensive. The costs associated with practice facilities, game fees, travel, coaching, equipment and uniforms amount to about $900 per 4-5 month season per student athlete. Monies to cover these expenses are generated through a combination of monthly fees, fundraisers and sponsorships. The parents of our student athletes believe so strongly in our program that they pay for the vast majority (more than 90%) of its financial needs.
We are proud of the accomplishments of our student athletes and are looking for sponsors who share our values and are willing to partner with us to make a difference in their lives. Sponsorships can be in the form of cash grants or product donations. Cash grants will be used to provide scholarships for student athletes (on a needs basis) who meet ongoing academic goals and who otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate in our program. Product donations (such as basketballs, ball bags, shoes, game jerseys, practice uniforms or other items that can be raffled off) are also needed. In addition to cash grants and product donations we also offer Annual Signature Sponsorships.
