HOW IT WORKS

Prior to Hit-A-Thon Day

*Players obtain sponsors who donate flat donations or 'per foot' donations.  Please see below on how to collect donations.

*Please support Hit-A-Thon fundraiser at practices. Managers and coaches that ‘market’ the event have proven to generate the most funds for the league

*Use creative ways to help ‘market’ the event. For example, the team that collected the most funds last year allowed the player who collected the most to run a team practice. *

Hit-A-Thon Day

*All players are expected to participate.

*No money is collected or turned in on Hit-A-Thon Day.

*Each team should wear game uniforms for the event.

*Each team will receive an arrival time and field time. Teams should arrive on time at designated field/dugout.

*Each team must provide three adults: pitcher, dugout/lineup coordinator, and ball collector.

*Each team is to bring helmets and bats. The league will provide baseballs.

* Each player will receive up to 3 hits or 5 pitches.  T-Ball division will hit off a tee, A-Ball the coaches will pitch to the players, AA players will hit off the pitching machine and then AAA on up will be coach pitch.  The longest hit for each player is recorded.

*Keep moving. There are a lot of teams to participate in a short window. All teams will have 25 minutes on field.

After Hit-A-Thon Day

*Each player should continue collecting donations from sponsors.

*Each team must collect check and cash donations from all players.

*Each team must submit their team collections by no later than Wednesday, April 20th  at Countryside Community Park

*Failure to turn in the collected funds on time may affect the individual and team prize distribution.

Prizes will be given to Team Managers/Coordinators before the end of the season.

HOW TO COLLECT DONATIONS

If each player collects $100, we will collect more than our goal!!!!

HIT-A-THON ONLINE! We are excited to streamline the donation and donor outreach process for our upcoming Hit-A-Thon. Countryside LL players will be able to reach out to friends and families electronically by email, Facebook, and Twitter, instead of going door-to-door, tracking commitments, and handling checks.  Additionally, donors can donate to support with a simple and secure online transaction.

Players receive an email from "99Pledges" where players will be invited to in the 2022 Hit-A-Thon for Countryside Little League.  The website will allow players to easily solicit pledges and donations. Some donors may sponsor a pledge “per foot” payable after     the team participates in “Hit-a-Thon” day. The League also strongly encourages donations of a flat amount to be paid at the time of the solicitation.
