Many wrestling programs struggle financially and ask donors to make up the shortfall. If you use Takedown Scoring and Stats, fundraising can be easy and fun, and engage your fans and wrestlers in a meaningful way. The idea is to create a proposition that conditions a donation on team or individual performance metrics tracked by Takedown Scoring and Stats.
Since you’re using Takedown Scoring and Stats, wrestlers can tie donations to almost any activity that occurs on the mat. Here are some examples:
- $ for pins, tech falls, major decisions
- $ for takedowns, near falls
- $ for top eight tournament placements
- $ for dual meet points
- $ for fastest pin
- $ for anything on the leaderboard
- $ for third period comebacks
Each wrestler can develop their own donor proposition. If your 145 pounder thinks he’s really great at first period takedowns, he can fund raise on that basis. Takedown Scoring and Stats makes the end-of-season accounting a breeze.
The next time someone suggests a car wash or pancake breakfast as a fundraiser, consider this alternative approach which emphasizes fun, personalization, ease-of-implementation and fan-engagement.
