Palm Beach County Schools (FL) Losing Equipment To Nature

Interesting article on Palm Beach County Schools (FL) and their constant loss of balls to nearby canal and groves.  As foul balls are washed far away, the schools continue to lose over $1,000 a year in product.  This is another reason why we strive to help provide revenue and equipment to schools and organizations in need.  As funding is tight, we help to alleviate the stress on athletic budgets.

Sports Image® Offers New Territory Plans

Dayton, OH – March 2013

Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry, announced today a new franchise territory plan called the “Home Run” option.  The new plan lowers the entry cost point for a Sports Image® franchise investment. Under the “Home Run” option, franchise buyers can work part-time or full-time to accomplish their goals.

“The Home Run option is the perfect solution for anyone that wants to build a secondary income stream or for those who want to begin a career transition without having to leave their current employment,” says Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “To be able to help schools and grassroots organizations while creating personal income is the ultimate dream job of a lot of folks out there and the Home Run option will allow the Sports Image® franchise buyer to accomplish both.”

The “Home Run” option offers the franchise investor a license to use the Sports Image® brand, systems, proprietary products, and marketing resources to build their business from a home office without having to make a full-time commitment.

Sports Image® also offers a second territory plan called the “Grand Slam” option.  The “Grand Slam” option offers all of the same benefits offered under the “Home Run” option plus it provides geographic protections, products that are only available under the Grand Slam plan, and more support options.  Both the “Grand Slam” and the “Home Run” options offer a full complement of marketing solutions to sponsoring businesses while at the same time providing free equipment and revenue to schools and organizations.

Sports Image® has helped schools and organizations obtain state-of-the-art equipment and revenue at no cost since 2002.  Through its unique, grassroots sports marketing approach, Sports Image® has given over $1,000,000 in cash and over $11,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and Canada. In addition, Sports Image® was recently honored by being included on the prestigious list of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchises of 2013.

“Sports Image® is the first national franchise to market through youth sports.  We’ve helped schools, clubs, community park & recreation departments, churches, and other youth organizations offset Pay-to-Play for over 11 years. In July 2009, Sports Image® franchised the organization to put fully vested business owners in local markets across the country,” said Mr. Horstman.

Sports Image® (www.sportsimageinc.com) was founded in 2002 in Dayton, OH with the purpose of helping high schools and other grassroots organizations to obtain state-of-the-art equipment and much needed revenue for their athletic programs. To date, Sports Image® has given over $1,000,000 in cash and over $11,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and in Canada.  In addition, Sports Image® also founded and manages the Good Samaritan Flyin’ to the Hoop (www.flyintothehoop.com), a Top-Ranked National High School Basketball Event that pumps $2M into the local Dayton, OH community annually.  For more info, contact us at 937-704-9670.
