WE can't wait to see you on the court this year!
Dear PRAA Members,
Our number one priority is for these kids to have fun and be safe. Our association continues to grow and parking is becoming more of an issue at Hemby Bridge Elementary during our events. It is very important for the safety of all the children that you follow the parking guidelines.
ALWAYS drive slow upon entering or leaving the parking lot.
When parking in the main lot at Hemby Bridge Elementary (where the buses usually park) please park appropriately close to the car next to you so we don't waste space. The lines are designated for buses and can easily accomodate more vehicles.
No Parking on the playground
No parking in the drop off zone or between handicap designated spaces.
Please do not leave valuables in your car as PRAA and or Union County Public Schools are not responsible for any items reported stolen from your vehicles.
Please keep the parking lot clean. Many teams provide snacks after each game which is great, however we're finding may wrappers and drink containers left laying on the ground.
Community Sponsorship Opportunities
Porter Ridge Athletic Association's ("PRAA") Ways & Means program was designed to work with our local business partners to offer mutually beneficial opportunities to support our youth sports programs. Our association currently includes over 1500 families in the western Union County areas from the Hemby Bridge, Indian Trail, Stallings, Lake Park, Monroe, and surrounding communities providing baseball, football, softball, soccer, basketball, and cheerleading to kids ages 4-16. We are a not for profit organization and comprise our administrative board, coaching staff, and support personnel of member volunteers to ensure the kids have a great experience learning, exercising, and socializing both individual and team participation skills, all while having fun!
The expenses we incur as an association include uniforms, equipment (sport and safety), field maintenance (10 total), UCPS gymnasium rental, player financial assistance, and much more. As our membership grows, so does the overhead with running an association as active as PRAA. Our program offers a range of sponsorship/donation options including promotional opportunities, direct marketing, and other ways to promote your company's products and services available in the vicinity.
The following options below are a few of several ways we work with our area sponsors to show your support of youth activities in the community:
$5000 – Platinum sponsorship – 4 large banners across our sports fields, sponsorship recognition via the PRAA website and member newsletter, event recognition showcasing community support, direct member communication opportunities, and much more!
$2500 – Gold sponsorship – 3 banners located at our sports fields, sponsorship recognition via the PRAA website and member newsletter, event recognition showcasing your community support, and sport uniform logo options*
$1250 – Silver sponsorship – 2 banners located at our sports fields, sponsorship recognition via the PRAA website and member newsletter, and event recognition showcasing your community support.
$300 – Family Scholarship Sponsor – your contribution to supporting a family who may be experiencing a financial challenge limiting their child/children's ability to participate in our programs. Recognition includes PRAA website member newsletter, and direct recipient communication acknowledgement.
