Thank you for your interest in joining the Bellevue Boys Lacrosse family as a sponsor. We are excited as 2017 looks to be another great year for Bellevue Boys Lacrosse with our varsity team once again projected as one of the favorites to contend for another state title. Returning from a close loss the prior year, our varsity team came back strong and won the D1 State Championships in 2016! With that win, we’ve claimed the title five out of the last six years! Our JV, C teams at the high school level and as our youth teams all had a strong year as well. A year to be proud.
Fall ball continues to be popular and we had four teams from middle to high school going to the Space Needle Shootout in early December. This high profile tournament attracts teams from across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Canada. It’s clear that the support our program has received from sponsors like you is paying off. Along with the on field success our fans continue to turn out in support of the teams and to be a part of the intense atmosphere.
For 2017, we plan to field three high school teams, two middle school teams and five elementary school teams extending all the way to kindergarten with approximately 250 boys in our program overall. After another great trip to the traditional hotbed of the sport (Long Island, NY) last April, the varsity team is headed to Dallas, TX this spring to play the top teams in the state of Texas. The national exposure continues to strengthen the program providing our varsity team an opportunity to play top competitive teams across the country.
We need your help to maintain and build on past successes. To plan and execute all of the details – from hiring quality coaches, renting fields, purchasing equipment, to supporting travel – is an enormous effort and expensive. Yet this is the backbone for a quality program, successful season and ultimately a positive experience for our kids. Bellevue Lacrosse is dedicated to success and, at the same time, to keeping player fees at a level that is attainable for all. Registration fees only cover half of our budget. We look to sponsorship, donations, an auction and fundraising done by the players to make up the balance. Join us in our effort to provide the best program possible for the kids in our community. Your organization can be part of this winning team and you can get your business out in front of our loyal, dedicated lacrosse community.
Thank you for your support. Our kids love this sport and it continues to grow exponentially in this area. Only with your help is it possible to give them the full experience we want to provide.
The Corporate Sponsorship packages are designed to give our sponsors maximum exposure to our players, parents and fans throughout the season. At the BBLC program level, there are four participation levels available, Wolverine, Platinum, Blue, and Gold. Each level offers sponsors exposure in a variety of media with positioning and size of the sponsor graphic elements relative to their commitment level. There is also the opportunity to advertise in the game day program only.
- Website – The official website for BBLC www.bellevuelacrosse.com, is a key resource for the Bellevue lacrosse community. The site is the primary communication vehicle for all critical information year round. Traffic to the site is consistent throughout the year, beginning with team registration in the fall, pre-season practice and conditioning programs, in-season game and practice schedules through to post-season summer camps. Sponsor graphic tiles greet visitors from the home page each time they check-in.
