House League Team Sponsorship

Baseball is continuing to grow in our community - but, so are the costs. Please take a moment to review our program and the details regarding the league and sponsorship. Without community minded business leaders like you, our local sports teams would have a tough time surviving and providing the best opportunities and experiences for the players and their families.

Our sponsorship dollars are utilized for the ever increasing costs of running the sport - diamond permits, training, coaching clinics, insurance, uniforms, balls, bats, equipment, umpires...

The Aurora King Baseball Association is committed and dedicated to making sure that EVERY kid who wants to play the great game of baseball will have the opportunity to do so. We will find a way for those families that need help. Our sponsors are crucial to that cause.

We are hoping that you will become a sponsor and league partner this season!
Please contact Melissa Randall, the VP of House League with any questions: messie@rogers.com

Sport Aurora Believes That All Kids Can Play in Aurora!

Removing barriers and increasing participation rates, particularly in the youth segment of our Community, is a priority for us.
Financial barriers are sometimes the only reason why some kids can’t join healthy, socially beneficial organized sport in our Town, so to reduce or eliminate that barrier we have developed the Sport Aurora All Kids Can Play Program.

Helping Families Give their Kids a Sporting Chance

One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in sport and recreation activities because of financial barriers (Ipsos Reid, 2009). That means that many kids are missing out.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart is dedicated to removing barriers, so children can participate in organized sport and recreation. We see it as equipping kids for life, because participation in organized sport and recreation increases a child’s chance for success in life.
They discover and participate. They gain self-confidence. They develop self-esteem. They learn leadership skills. Their lives become richer. This is the power of Canadian Tire Jumpstart.

Sport Aurora is a local chapter partner and has been identified to work together with its Sports Organizations to identify children in financial need looking to participate in organized sport and recreational activities that require the child to be physically active.
