Sponsorship Opportunities

 The Traverse Area Girls Softball League (TAGS) offers a welcoming platform for girls across the Grand Traverse region to engage in softball, fostering growth and enjoyment regardless of their skill level or experience. At TAGS, our core values center around participation, sportsmanship, and fun, with an instructional approach that ensures every player has the opportunity to learn and develop.

We understand that while healthy competition can be exciting and fulfilling, it's essential to prioritize participation and sportsmanship above all else. Our league operates thanks to the dedication of volunteer board members, coaches, and parents, all committed to upholding these values. We firmly believe that the success of our league is measured by the positive experiences and growth of our players.

By supporting TAGS, you're not just investing in a softball league; you're investing in the development and well-being of young girls in our community. Your sponsorship enables us to continue providing a supportive and enriching environment where girls can thrive both on and off the field.

Join us in our mission to empower and inspire the next generation of female athletes. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of these young players, fostering a love for the game that will last a lifetime.

The team sponsorship fee is $300 plus the cost of team uniforms. This fee contributes to various essential aspects of our league:

  • Field maintenance and enhancements.
  • Replacement and replenishment of shared equipment each summer, including balls, bases, pitching rubbers, helmets, bats, and catcher’s gear.
  • Funding clinics and compensating coaches or trainers to enhance the skill level of our players.
  • Covering the costs of Championship Night activities.

For those considering a sustaining sponsorship, the fee is $150, and these funds are allocated towards:

  • Providing financial aid to players.
  • Supplementing the replenishment of shared equipment needed each summer, such as balls, bases, pitching rubbers, helmets, bats, and catcher’s gear.
  • Similar to team sponsors, sustaining sponsors receive a link from our website to their website page, excluding promotional materials like coupons.
