I'm working on forming a sponsered summer league, but am curious as to how to determine the sponsers fees. The bowling center that will be hosting has a minimum $80 sponsers fee which only covers trophies, pay-outs, and a few other things. It doesn't cover team shirts which is something I'd like to have for this league. I've done some browsing of a few online bowling apparel sites and it seems like the low end cost for a basic shirt is around $22-$28, but that cost doesn't include bowlers & sponsers names/logos. I've yet to get very deep into researching how much that will run.
Does anyone have any info on this to offer up? Any recomendations on what online bowling apparel sites are the best would be appriciated too. So far I'm liking what i see of AmericanBowlingApparel.com the best. Secondary question would be..... Are there any sites/articles out there that offer tips on building new leagues?
Thanks in advance for any help offered!!
p.s. The bowling cntr also has a $15 per week fee per bowler, but said that the sponsers fee could cover some or all of that. How much is typical for a weekly bowlers fee in most sponsered leagues?
