Own a business?

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to advertise your business and support your kids, find your way to the bottom of the page and click “Sponsor this team”. You do not have a business but know someone that does and would be willing to support your kid, share the website with them. The cost of advertisement is inexpensive and 50% goes to the team. Just click on it and see for yourself.

I am not looking to make a profit but to use any of the funds for equipment (hitting nets, balls, agility training), uniforms (matching shirts, pants, hats, helmets, bags), league fees, insurance or anything else that keeps our little players in the game.
