Sports Image (CO) Makes Some Waves

Our Sports Image® franchise in the Denver, CO, area has just generously helped another school earn the funding they need.  Check out this article on the impact that Aaron and Traci Tattersall have made in their area:

In only their first year in business, Sports Image-Denver has given new equipment valued at $10,000 and $16,000 cash donations to local Colorado high schools. As part of a growing high-school sports marketing industry, Sports Image-Denver works diligently to form partnerships between high schools and local businesses.

Sports Image® Franchisee in Colorado Awarded 2nd Territory

Dayton, OH & Aurora, CO – March 2013 – A Colorado couple has just been awarded their second Sports Marketing Franchised Territory in under a year.  Sports Image®, a leader in the high school sports marketing industry, announced that it has awarded Aaron & Traci Tattersall of Aurora, CO, the Southern Colorado market. This new territory will join with their current Denver metro market.  With the two exclusive Colorado territories, the Tattersalls join alongside Mr. Joseph Bland, owner of the northern Colorado market, to make a strong foothold enabling Sports Image® to help schools and organizations across the Centennial State.

“The Tattersalls represent the Sports Image® brand to its fullest,” said Mr. Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “They are very worthy of this second franchise. Many organizations in Colorado such as Legend, Chaparral & Ponderosa high schools have already greatly benefited because of their execution of the Sports Image® systems.”

“We purchased our 1st Sports Image territory a year ago.  In one short year, we’ve given a lot of new equipment and over $16,000 to multiple schools in the Denver metro area,” said Traci Tattersall. “The Sports Image® model provides our corporate partners a unique and creative way to get their message into local high schools and other grassroots organizations.  We feel extremely blessed to be able to help others and to be in an industry that is not driven by our national or local economy.  We look forward to a great 2013!”

“Sports Image® is the first national franchise to market through youth sports.  We’ve been helping schools, clubs, community Parks and Recs and other youth organizations offset budget constraints for over 10 years. In July 2009 we franchised our organization to put vested business owners on the ground floor in local markets across the country,” said Mr. Horstman.  “We now have 20+ franchisees across the nation helping individual schools and organizations.”

Sports Image Inks New Franchise

We are excited to announce that we have a new territory on board.  Congratulations to Aaron and Traci Tattersall for their newest franchise location! This marks the second territory for the Tattersall’s in Colorado, and the 3rd Colorado territory for Sports Image®.  We are thrilled to welcome Aaron and Traci to their second location and know they will work hard to bring in much needed revenue and equipment to their local schools and organizations.  Best of luck to Tattersall’s as they expand the Sports Image® terrain!

Sports Image® Teams Up With University of Northern Colorado

Sports Image® has teamed up with the University of Northern Colorado to raise some much needed revenue for local schools.  Through the University’s partnership with Aaron and Traci Tattersall of Sports Image® (CO), it has been able to set a game plan for raising funds-utilizing a variety of fund raising projects.  The floor signage below is one of the many sponsorship opportunities that Aaron and Traci have completed with the University of Northern Colorado and more projects are underway.


Ponderosa High School’s (CO) New Look

Ponderosa High School in Parker, CO turns 30 years old in 2013, the 2nd oldest high school in Douglas County. Known for a strong athletic and academic legacy, Pondo had, unfortunately, fallen into disrepair. Tim Ottmann, the Athletic Director, had high hopes to re-vamp the gymnasium which houses volleyball, basketball, and wrestling. Bids that included re-finishing the gym floor, painting, and getting new wall padding were astounding and far too great a goal for fundraising.



Colorado Franchise Joins Forces With Deparment Of Transportation

Sports Image® franchise owners, Aaron and Traci Tattersall, CO,  have just joined forces with the Colorado Department of Transportation to help Ponderosa High School receive much needed revenue.  The sponsorship provided by the CDOT, will help offset the cost of the school’s upcoming gym floor project.  In addition, the Colorado Department of Transportation has agreed to work with Sports Image® on future projects in the Denver area.  Thanks to the CDOT for their support of local schools!



Sports Image® Welcomes 18th Franchise in Colorado

Dayton, OH – February 2012– Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry,  has just awarded their 18th Sports Marketing Franchise to Traci and Aaron Tattersall of Denver, CO. This is the first franchise awarded in the state of Colorado and also the first to open west of the Mississippi. The Tattersall’s join seventeen other existing franchises in 12 different states awarded by Sports Image® in just its first two-and-a-half years of franchising.

“We, too, have been impacted with the budget cuts in Colorado schools, and couldn’t be more excited to own a business that helps athletic programs procure equipment that may have otherwise been impossible for them.   We want the absolute best for our children and to own a business that is dedicated to helping schools and other organizations all across Colorado makes me extremely proud as a parent and as a Colorado businesswoman,” stated Mrs. Tattersall.

Since 2002, Sports Image® has helped schools and organizations obtain state-of-the-art equipment and much needed revenue for their athletic programs as budgets continue to dry up nationwide. The program has zero cost to the schools and organizations. Through its’ unique, grassroots sports marketing approach and by leveraging existing relationships, Sports Image® has given over $850,000 in cash and over $10,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and in Canada.  This year, Sports Image® will also be launching The Big Score, an online revenue-generating program to complement its current programs.

“The Tattersall’s are going to be a great addition to our growing Sports Image® franchise network,” said Mr. Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®.”  As parents in the Colorado school systems, they are seeing firsthand the impact that declining budgets are having on sports and other extracurricular activities. I applaud them for wanting to be a part of the solution… to be a part of Sports Image®.”

“Sports Image® is the first national franchise to market through youth sports.  We’ve been helping schools, clubs, community Parks and Recs, churches, and other youth organizations offset Pay-to-Play for over 10 years. In the summer of 2009 we franchised our organization to put vested business owners on the ground floor in local markets across the country,” said Mr. Horstman.  “We are on pace to have over 30+ franchises operating across the country by the end of 2012.”
