Youth Sport Sponsorships

The Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation Department organizes more than 1,400 boys and girls in the Auburn area into a variety of sports.  Spring sponsorships are for baseball, fastpitch, T-ball, and track teams. Fall sponsorships are for soccer, flag football, volleyball and wrestling teams. These boys and girls, grades K-12, learn the basic fundamentals in a fun-filled environment. In order to keep registration fees affordable, and to provide team uniforms and equipment, sponsors are needed for teams. In return, the sponsor receives their business or organization name and logo on a T-shirt uniform, an 8x10 team photo plaque and the benefit of helping youth enjoy a positive recreation experience. The sponsorship fee is $195 per team. Sponsorships are assigned on a first-paid basis. We assign sponsors once teams have been established and will do our best to accommodate specific sponsorship requests. Sponsor logo on shirts is not guaranteed if not supplied in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or other usable format.
