Welcome potential sponsors!
The Fort Hunt Little League is about to embark on its 62nd consecutive season and presently serves 650 local boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 16, who will be organized into more than 60 teams for the Spring 2017 season. The FHLL is entirely a volunteer driven organization – Board members, Managers & Coaches, Umpires and infield rakers – all volunteers making an investment of their time and energy. By “volunteering” some of your resources in support of the League you are also making an investment in the local children who play in the FHLL.
Player registration fees cover only a portion of our basic operating costs which include team uniforms, player equipment, Little League International annual dues and Fairfax County field-use fees, field maintenance supplies and services. Sponsorship funds enable the publication of the annual “Spring Book”, ensures all operating costs beyond registration fees are covered and enable us to tackle some needed field improvement projects each year.
We have approximately 60 teams each spring that need a sponsor for the back of the uniform shirts – the traditional $350 “team sponsorship” option, includes advertising in the Spring Book. We also need some sponsors to specifically sponsor the inside and back covers of the League Spring Book, to enable us to produce that for each family in the league, and we also have the option of displaying an advertising banner on the outfield fences at the Hollin Hall fields (behind the Senior Center).
The 60 teams include kids from over 500 local families who live, work and shop in the immediate Fort Hunt area. Baseball teams from Woodlawn, Fort Belvior, Springfield, Alexandria, Mount Vernon and other local areas also come and play at the Hollin Hall fields during the spring, summer and fall, so advertising there has an even wider audience than just the local area. Our Spring “Picture” Book is distributed to these 500 local families as a memento of the season, so it’s a great way for local businesses to advertise and show their support for the baseball playing youth of the Fort Hunt community.
The Fort Hunt Little League is sincerely grateful for the much needed financial and in-kind support it receives from its many generous sponsors and local businesses. Your support is vital to enable Fort Hunt Little League to sustain our success. Our program is part of the Fort Hunt Youth Athletics Association, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, so your contributions may be eligible for a tax deduction.
Thanks to generous donor support and a grant from Fairfax County in 2015 we were able to add beautiful electronic scoreboards to our two primary fields at Hollin Hall, where FHLL also hosted the 2015 Little League District 9 All Star Tournament. We have ambitious plans in 2016 and beyond to reconfigure Fort Hunt Elementary as a dual-use (46'-60'/50'-70') field with regulation outfield fence and an all-new infield as we redouble our commitment to providing our kids the safest and best maintained fields and facilities possible. We are also launching a Challenger Division to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges to play and enjoy the great game of baseball.
