Dear Prospective Sponsor:
On behalf of the Tri Scottsdale Triathlon Club, I am pleased to invite you to sponsor our Club for 2019. Tri Scottsdale is currently planning one major race event this year, our local race Tri 4 the Cure. Our club will also participate in over 10 local races next year where we will have our tents to support our athletes as well as over 50 out of town races where the kits will be work throughout the world. This year we are offering Main sponsorships (with a speaking spot) as well as partnerships for discounts to our members, happy hour sponsors, gear sponsorship and specific logo placement sponsorship opportunities (coolers/tents/race photo red carpet backdrop).
Your sponsorship of our club race events will support efforts to provide our non-profit tri club the ability to continue to provide the best experience and support possible to all our racers. We also strive to set a good example of safe, positive, eco-friendly, and healthy activities for a wide range of participants. The age range of our racers are 20-85 years old, and avg. age is 45. We currently have over 600 athletes and each year it has been increasing by 100. We have about six pro-triathletes on our team this year, and will be providing an ambassador program to the club for the first time.
Our new ambassador program will help spread the word about the club, and we will have a stronger social media presence. Our ambassadors will have race fees paid and they will be required to help promote the club and sponsors. We will be starting a scholarship program next year that will provide low-income children/adults to be able to get assistance to pay for race fees/kits/bikes. We also plan to start a teen program in 2019, which will be one of very few in the valley. We also partner with St. Vincent’s De Paul to help provide bicycles, tires/tubes and helmets over the past year for their bike program for people in need, and plan to continue this effort in 2019.
We have one large party at the end of the year which all of our sponsors would be invited to as well as our happy hours. We will be having two club meetings next year where the sponsors with a speaking spot will have a chance to get in front of the club to speak about their sponsorship and what they offer the club. All of our sponsors will receive a free t-shirt/hat/and sweatshirt.
Your business name and logo will be seen and appreciated by hundreds of participants and supporters before, during and after each event. At each sponsorship level we are able to provide
increasing marketing opportunities to you and your business. For example your name or logo if you decide so, may appear on printed items such as shirts, posters and other signage; you may place marketing material in our newsletters and /or place your logo on a banner at the local events. Your business may also have web exposure on the triscottsdale.org website. Remember, your sponsorship, thus name association continues throughout the year.
Please complete the sponsorship application form below at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon. If you have any further questions, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for recognition in printed information is January 31, 2019.
