Support NSA through Sponsorship

2017 Sponsorship Opportunities

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the Northfield Soccer Association (NSA) is able to share the “Beautiful Game” with hundreds of children in our community.  After a two year break from solicitations, we are offering some exciting sponsorship opportunities this year.  The NSA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations may be tax deductible.

How will the money be used?

Our programs impact girls and boys ranging in age from 4 to 18 years old and from across the social spectrum.  We have spring and fall traveling seasons, an in-house program for the younger kids, and an Academy program for players transitioning from in-house to traveling.  Our annual soccer tournament brings thousands of people to Northfield.  Doing all this gets expensive, and your donations help in the following ways:

  • Providing our portion of the funding for CAC administered scholarships for approximately 50 – 80 kids every year.  
  • Maintaining our fields – the city owns the land, but we are in charge of maintenance.  Lawn mowing, seeding, aerating, and ongoing maintenance is about a $30,000 expense each year, and our sprinkler heads are in need of repair.
  • Offsetting the cost of paid coaches that help train our volunteer coaches, fill in some coaching positions when volunteers aren’t available, provide extra training for our teams.
  • Offering professional development opportunities for our volunteer coaches 
  • Providing equipment - Soccer balls, nets, pinnies, pumps, cones, medical supplies and corner flags are just some of the items needed every year 

How can you can help?

  • General donation – Any amount is appreciated!!!
  • Host an NSA day/night at your business where a percent of the proceeds go to the NSA.
  • $150 In-House team sponsorship – have the name of your business on the jerseys of an In-House team
  • $300 In-House Program Sponsor – have the name of your business on the jerseys of TWO In-House teams and the coaches shirts
  • $500 Jesse James Shoot Out Tournament Sponsor – signage the day of the game, name of your business on the back of all tournament T-shirts
  • Field Sponsor – Large sign by the field sponsored - $2,500 for premium location, $1,500 for standard

Our Mission: “The Northfield Soccer Association promotes the game of soccer for all individuals in the Northfield, Minnesota area with special emphasis on youth players. We promote education, self-esteem, diversity and teamwork in a safe, positive environment.”

DEADLINE May 1, 2017 for In-house and JJSO sponsorships, no deadline for other items (commitment only now, NSA will invoice later).


Inhouse Team Sponsorship

An easy way to support youth soccer in Northfield is to sponsor an In House team. Your company's name appears on your team's jersey, you get to pick the jersey color, and can specify up to 3 players on that team.


In addition, NSA provides scholarships for dozens of low income players every year in both the In House and Traveling programs. At least 50% of general Sponsor donations are directed to our Scholarship fund with the remainder going to our operating fund to support our fields and keep our membership costs low.
 

For more information on Inhouse sponsorship, please contact our Fundraising and Community Support Coordinator fundraising@northfieldsoccer.org


Field Sponsorship

Our Fields and Signage are in need of care.  We will be looking to the community to Sponsor the "Care and Feeding" of our fields in return for Recognition on our new Field Signs.

A sponsor would sure make this new sign look nice!
