Volleyball Tournament Fund Raisers
Is your school or club holding a volleyball tournament? Do you need a fund raiser to help offset some of the expense of holding the tournament?
Here is some insight from someone who reported that they had a great volleyball tournament fund raiser by offering volleyball Scratch Cards to any player or teams that needed help raising the money to play in the tournament:
“I had never sold scratch cards before so I had no idea how much money you could raise with them,” she said. “But man. It was the only Volleyball Fund Raising product I could find that was made for volleyball and just volleyball.”
“Everyone who needed to raise money was given one of the scratch cards. Each one of them raises $100. I think that was just awesome. People had no problem making donations. The coupons we had to give them were great too. If anyone wants to hold a volleyball tournament fund raiser, I would definitely tell them to think about scratch cards.”
Competitive volleyball can get very expensive. We found the following message on a website called Crash the Boards – Volleyball:
“My daughter is interested in joining a local volleyball club team. Being a father of two older boys, I was shocked that it would cost over $1,200 plus traveling expenses for my daughter to play.
The cost for my sons to play football, basketball & football amounted to under $500 for the year, and I thought that was high! One son played on a travel team basketball and baseball, and it still didn't come close to the $1,200.
I understand much of it goes towards a practice facility, but how much do the coaches make? Not one of my son’s teams, did a coach receive a dime for coaching.
I am aware that soccer travel teams are commanding similar amounts. Can someone explain to me why so much?”
As you enter the world of volleyball you will see that the costs are much higher than expected. That’s why volleyball tournament fund raisers and fundraisers for volleyball in general are so important.
