We a community based basketball program with a house league program and a rep program. Our programs consists of boys and girls aged 5-18. We have spend the summer get the two clubs in our community to become one so we are not competing on players, coaches and volunteers. Our entire program is run with volunteers. However being a not for profit budgets are tight. With the increases costs of our gyms from last year (19%) we are looking to raise a little extra money.
This extra money would go towards the club in helping to fund some tournaments, which we hope to be successful at and in coming years be the place to go to for the tournaments. We have a new start of the art facility in our community and we can do some great things.
Extra money can go to promoting the club in our community which will help grow our registration numbers which in turn will give us some cushion financially.
Extra money can go towards getting our coaches some better training, so we can put a better "product" on the court for the kids.
Ultimately, we want the kids to be the winners from any extra money. We can make improvements that the children in our area gain from, then they are the winners.
