Can you imagine your own school experience without the influence and opportunity to participate in inter-scholastic sports?
We don’t want that nightmare to become a reality.
LVISSAA & LIMSSA are presenting a unique opportunity for you to become part of the solution.
The Lower Vancouver Island School Sports Booster Club is a fundraising and sponsor recognition scheme that is aimed to address an explicit financial shortfall in local extra-curricular school sports. Volunteer Coaches, Volunteer Administrators, and parents are increasingly bearing the financial burden of participation in school sports. We are offering several options for advertising and exposure that you may choose based on the nature of your business and its marketing needs.
Provincial funding for school sports has been slashed over the past few years, and costs are increasing. Currently, the cost of officials, first aid and awards are split evenly between schools that participate in each league, and the majority of coaches donate their services without any remuneration. The retention rate of coaches is starting to decline, and participation in local league play is often limited by financial pressure at schools.
Each school has their own system in place to meet the financial demand of extracurricular sports (ie PACs); however families are increasingly bearing the financial burden. Coaches are struggling to keep up with fundraising efforts for their teams, and the effects are felt through the whole school sport system.
You contribution will become part of the solution by:
- Increasing retention rate of volunteer school coaches and athletic directors
- Easing the financial burden of families with kids in school sports
- Connecting the local school sport community to the local business community
More resources are required for:
- Officiating expenses
- Volunteer Coach appreciation (banquet, awards)
- Athlete event awards (ribbons, trophies)
- First-aid (ambulance attendance at some events)
- AGM expenses (venue hire, copying, food)
