sponsorship letter GSJ by 917mMF


									To              ,

In November 2007, a team of dedicated volleyball coaches and volunteers met to discuss ways to better
improve competitive volleyball in our area. Their goal was to start a club volleyball team for girls on the
Grand Strand. After an overwhelming turnout for the team tryouts, Grand Strand Juniors was born.
Three travel teams and two training teams totaling over 60 girls were formed with the goal of
participating in tournaments across South Carolina.

In our fourth season, Grand Strand Juniors had 12 travel teams and a training team with nearly 120 girls
involved in the program. For the second year in a row we had two local high schools reach the third round
or beyond in the state playoffs. We have impacted the lives of girls in our community in a positive way.

We are asking you to help us continue our volleyball program. You can help girls succeed. A study by
the Women’s Sports Foundation found that girls who participate in sports:
       Are more likely to get better grades
       Are more likely to graduate
       Reduce their risk of breast cancer with just 4 hours of exercise per week
       Have higher levels of confidence and self esteem
       Have lower levels of depression
       Have a more positive body image
       Experience higher levels of psychological well-being
       Gain critical workplace skills as they learn about teamwork, goal-setting and the
       pursuit of excellence

To help offset operating and travel related expenses, purchase needed equipment, and help provide entry
into the club for those who may not be able to afford it, we are seeking financial donations. For a gift of
$100 we will put yours or your business name as a proud sponsor of Grand Strand Juniors on the back of
our club t-shirt. Over 100 shirts are printed and worn throughout the season by our players. If you are
unable to contribute $100, any donation would be greatly appreciated and put to good use.

Please visit our web site: www.grandstrandjuniors.com We invite you to be a part of our future.
