Southern Softpaw League (SSL) Gives Back by Helping Animals in Need
SSL will highlight pets needing adoption on its website, as well as make donations to deserving local animal charities. Teams that place first through fourth at the end of the season will be given a cash donation for the animal charity of their choice instead of trophies. Teams are challenged to match the league?s donation so that charities receive as much financial support as possible.
Whether you are a seasoned softball pro or a beginner who just wants to have fun, you?ll find a division in SSL that?s right for you. The league can accommodate up to 40 teams in three divisions ? Super Competitive (SC), Competitive Fun (CF) and Just Fun (JF) ? and can assist individuals at all skill levels with team placement. Everyone is welcomed to participate regardless of sexual orientation, gender, age, disability or race. The player league membership fee is only $25, and the team fee is $250. Players will not be ?rated? as they are in other leagues. All teams are encouraged to have cheerleading squads to add to the overall enjoyment and league experience.
SSL also is soliciting support from local bars, restaurants, businesses and churches, asking them to join in the cause by becoming league sponsors. SSL has numerous sponsorship opportunities for local businesses ranging from the Grand Slam Sponsor of $1,000 or more to Animal Lover of $5 to $49.
?If their donation qualifies, sponsors receive ?host party? rights and their logos on SSL promotional materials, among other benefits,? DeLeon says. ?The visibility that SSL provides can add hundreds of new customers for local businesses, because we strongly encourage our players, fans and supporters to also support our sponsors.? Businesses that would like to make a donation and become an SSL sponsor can contact league treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
