Support The Lady Jackets

Dear Potential Sponsor,

I am the Administrative Manager for the Lady Jackets 16 and under fast-pitch softball team. The Lady Jackets are a very competitive girl’s travel softball organization based out of Browns Mill Park in Lithonia, GA. The club has been running for over 25 years and in that time, we’ve had hundreds of young women play for one of our teams, representing many surrounding counties. Many of them, over 275, have gone on to play at the college level.

We are very proud of our achievements and the hard work exhibited on the team.

We are an independent, non-profit organization in need of Sponsors for our 2016 Softball season. Our team is unique in that competing at this highly competitive level is very rarely represented by teams from the inner city. The expense to compete at this level is overwhelming ($7,000-8,500). The cost is mainly for uniforms, equipment, tournament entry fees and travel expenses.

Furthermore, participating at the national level, would enable the girls to receive college level exposure, giving them the opportunities to receive scholarships for an education which may not be afforded to them. We have the talent to do it, but not the funding! We hope you can help us with your financial support.

I want to share some facts about girls who play sports. (Jean Zimmerman and Gil Reavill, authors of Raising Our Athletic Daughters)

  • Girls who participate in sports are less likely to drop out of school, more likely to go on to college, and more likely to graduate from college.
  • They tend to avoid a whole host of risk-taking and self-destructive behaviors.
  • Girl athletes have one of the lowest rates of tobacco use among any sector of the high-school population.
  • They are less likely to abuse drugs.

All girls are at risk of the behaviors listed in the stats above, playing softball is a way to give them an opportunity for a better future. We do hope that this is something you might be willing to consider. We can provide you with further details and a full break down of the likely costs of the team and I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you further about this.

I look forward to hearing from you. My contact number is 678-313-5503 and email is bmladyjackets@gmail.com which can be found in the sidebar or visit our contact page.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
