The club will rely on sponsorships, club level fundraisers, and individual team fundraisers to raise extra money for special events (travel, tournaments) or equipment (track suits, kit bag).
Any Club run fundraising event will require participation of ALL team members. In some cases, there may be an opportunity to ‘opt out’ and simply pay the amount expected to be raised by a player, but for some fundraisers, such as 50/50 draws where there are advertised prizes, players will be obliged to participate
Any individual team that wishes to carry out their own fundraising must get the approval of the club executive prior organizing the event. This is to make sure the club is aware of the event as well as an opportunity to offer any possible assistance.
Any individual team that wants to purchase any type of team gear (track suits, bags, t-shirts, etc.) must get the approval of the club executive prior making any type of commitment to a vendor or supplier. The Club will typically identify a ‘supplier of choice’ for such items, both to insure that our teams all have the same ‘club look’ and also to normally provide a better price by bulk purchasing. At a minimum, the Club will identify a warm-up/track suit for ALL teams, with the intention of providing the same product for at least 2 years. The goal is to minimize the need for a player to purchase a new suit each year.
For all fundraising events and equipment purchases, the teams must use the Club Logo graphics/letterhead, and seek approval of the Board on any embroidery/silk-screening that is to be used.
