SPONSORS: We need company sponsorships for our teams. The cost to sponsor a team is $150.
Note: The sponsorship check must come complete with all the information requested to be included on our sponsor banners. Please identify which player and age group the sponsorship is for. We will need camera ready artwork for any company logo's, etc... to be included. Please note that we have decided instead of putting sponsors on the back of our team jerseys that we will now print and post sponsor banners in the gymnasium for the duration of the basketball season. This will allow us to get our shirt order completed quicker than we have in past years. Thank You for your understanding of this change. Deadline for sponsors is early December, 2020 and should be mailed to PO Box #91124, Louisville, KY 40291. Information can also be emailed to [email protected]
