The Junior Olympics is a costly event for our players, their families, and the Renegades Water Polo Club. So we are asking our community to help offset some of the cost with sponsorships from local businesses or families. Sponsorship for Renegades Water Polo Club can benefit a business or organization in two different ways:
- A $250 donation will put a company’s logo on the back of every Renegades Junior Olympic t-Shirt. This means all players and parents will be advertisers for the company year round.
- A $100 donation will put the name as a sponsor on the back of the Renegades Junior Olympic t-shirt.
- A cash/check donation for Renegades Water Polo Club is tax deductible. When donation is received we will then send a receipt with our Tax ID #.
