Thank you for your consideration in sponsoring the Saint Johns Middle School Athletics Association. We are grateful for any and all contributions that will help make their season the most rewarding experience for our young athletes.


Who We Are:


SJMSAA is an independent, private non-profit corporation that oversees 7 sports in 13 public middle schools and several private schools in St. Johns County. Sports include football, baseball, softball, golf, tennis, cheer and soccer 

How We Are Funded:

Similar to most youth non-profit sports organizations, we rely on registration fees paid by participating members, fundraising events and the generosity of local businesses and organizations to fund 100% of the program. While this is not an exhaustive list, monies received by SJMSAA are applied across each sport to pay for uniforms, equipment, insurance, medical and safety personnel for live events, field use permits and much more.

We also offer scholarships as part of the Keith Martin Scholarship Foundation to extend the experience of playing on a middle school sports team to those who may not have been able to financially do so otherwise. Our scholarship program is named after Mr. Martin as one of our founders, to recognize his legacy in creating and mobilizing youth sports programs in our county, many of which our children enjoy to this day. Part of any sponsorship funds secured are allocated to the scholarship program.


How Does an SJMSAA Sponsorship Work?

Your contribution can be in the form of a tax-deductible monetary contribution or a gift of goods or services valued at one of the levels outlined below.

GOODS AND SERVICES

There are many ways to support a youth sports program that are related to your business services. We can recognize your contribution and create a package to include your company on our website, social media, email communications and at live events. Examples of sponsoring through goods and services include:

- Sponsor with Food! Provide the food and drinks for a team event, compliments of your company.
- Sponsor with Stuff! Provide equipment and apparel for teams such as practice jerseys, sport-specific items, large, mobile training equipment, protective gear, etc.. Equipment and gear are large expenses and often need to be replaced and/or refurbished each season.

- Sponsor with Space! Our teams hold events throughout the season as well as end of season events and will often turn to local facilities for hosting. Support your local youth teams by hosting the event at your place of business for limited/no cost.
