The Charlotte Starz - Building a Winning Tradition!


A top-flight tournament softball team is an expensive undertaking. In addition to obvious costs, such as uniforms, bats, gloves, balls, and the like, there are also many "hidden" costs that aren't as apparent until you look a little deeper. Team insurance, practice field and lighting fees, tournament entry fees (which can be $300 or more), and catchers gear are just some of these other costs.

Funding for the Charlotte Starz comes from a variety of sources. Our player's parents pay a participation fee - $120 in 2006 - which covers things like uniforms, insurance, common equipment (like balls and catcher's gear), and some (but not all) entry fees. In addition, the parents are responsible for their daughter's personal equipment, including a glove, cleats, and usually one or more bats. These participation fees help provide for the Starz financial success as well as ensure that our families have a strong committment to meet the many demands of tournament softball.

Our organization also benefits from the generous contributions of our sponsors. These contributions allow us to provide our players with personalized, matching batting helmets and / or bat bags, high-quality team bats, and additional tournament opportunities. In addition, they allow us to provide playing opportunities for families that might otherwise not be able.

Sponsoring the Charlotte Starz will probably not be a huge advertising plus for your organization, and it probably won't land you on the 6:00 news or the front page of the Observer©, but it will most certainly enrich young softball players' experiences with the game and put a smile on their faces (and probably your's, too!). The Starz will gladly accept contributions of any size and provide the suggested levels below, which also point out some of the more tangible benefits of sponsoring the Starz, for your convenience.
