As you are aware, running a successful program is not without its costs. Our annual budget requirements are usually between $12,000-$15,000. This cost covers every aspect of our program, including travel expenses, uniforms, umpires, equipment, tournament fees, and league fees. It would not be possible for our program to exist without the support of local individuals, businesses, organizations, the city of Newton, and the Newton Rec Commission.
Listed below are many ways you can help out the Rebels:
Over half of our roster is usually comprised of players who come from out of state. Many of these players need host family arrangements for the duration of the season; late May through early August. So, we are in need of some host families! Being a host parent/family can be a very rewarding experience. Host families provide an out-of-town player a place to live for the summer season. By opening your home to a Rebel player, you are giving a quality young individual the opportunity to further their baseball career. Also, many host families find that their guest player is a great role model for children in the home. If you are interested in being a host parent this summer, please contact Rebels management to discuss this opportunity! All host families will be recognized as Rebels boosters and will receive free admission to all home games.
Many of our players will also be looking for part-time employment this summer. If your business is in the need of some extra help this summer, please contact Rebels management. All businesses providing employment to Rebels players will be recognized as Rebels boosters and will receive free admission to all home games.
Advertisement opportunities in the Rebels game program range from $30 for a line ad, $75 for a business card size ad, $600 for the front cover of the program, and many more options. The program will be published in the Newton Kansan newspaper and will be provided for free at all home games. Check the partnership form for more rates for advertising with the Rebels.
The Rebels offer game night sponsorships. A game night sponsorship is when a local business, person, and/or organization buys a $350 game sponsorship for a home game. The game sponsor receives 100 free admission tickets to promote their game, premier coverage during the game via the game announcer, FacebookLive broadcast, display/exhibit booth space, between-inning ad opportunities, and much more. This is a great way to gain exposure for your business/organization and partner with the Rebels to bring quality family-friendly sports entertainment to Newton!
The Rebels are always looking for individuals to volunteer with our baseball organization. Rebels volunteers are admitted free to all home games. Jobs include gate admission attendee, concession workers, general stand attendees, etc. Anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer is encouraged to contact the Rebels.
