This is the inagural season for the Rawlings Southeast 8U Travel Baseball Team which will be based out of Peachtree Ridge Park. As the team begins its winter workout schedule, we are looking to raise funds for 2017. Any money that we raise will go toward reducing the amount each family will need to contribute for team equipment, tournament fees, facility time, and individual player expenses.
The team will be focused on skill development with the majority of their tournament play occuring during the Spring and Summer months. But, since this is a year-round program, we will need to begin raising funds as soon as possible.
We are using a raffle to raise money to go toward the costs of tournaments, uniforms, facility rental, etc. The cost for an individual to play travel ball can exceed $1000 so we are doing our best to help those families who boys are on the team reduce what they have to pay out of pocket.
Why should you sponsor?
Donating to our raffle will show your involvement in promoting youth sports. These 7 and 8 year olds could be the next Cy Young winner or Home Run champ. And this will teach them the value of investing in their community no matter what they grow up to be.
I am the father of one of the boys on the team. I have been involved in the youth sports program since my son began playing at 3.5 years old. I am also the Treasurer of the Youth Athletics Board at the Park.
