It has been my pleasure and honor to have served the youth sports community for over 20 years. The D1 Nation has given exposure and recognition to thousands of young people. Time has flown by and we've been blessed to have over 300 Division One Alumni, 700 more at the D2, D3, NAIA, and Junior College levels as well as 12 NBA players and countless overseas pros. That's strictly through our club system, the D1 Ambassadors.
The impressive list grows much longer when you include those who have attended our camps or who've been the beneficiaries of notoriety they've received from our coverage of youth sports on www.d1nation.com Our site is recognized by college coaches as having expert insight into available, qualified players seeking a scholarship.
I've closed in on 60 years old now and I would like some help in endowing this program for years to come. If you, your child, your community or your alma mater have benefited from being a member of the D1 Ambassadors we'd greatly appreciate you giving back.
The D1 Ambassadors are a 501 (c) (3) organization which allows for your contribution to be deducted from your taxes. Any amount from $500 and upwards will be issued a tax deductible receipt.
The funds will be used to offset the costs of those who need financial help. Running a club program is prohibitive with travel costs to necessary events really putting a strain on people's pockets. My first priority is for everyone to be able to attend one of our camps, offset the cost of uniforms and registration fees, administrative costs to operating our web site, as well as coach's expenses and travel.
As I now spend most of my time overseas it is important that my travel costs be covered so I can be n hand to evaluate our prospects. I will continue to donate my time of 20-30 hours a week assisting with recruiting and putting up content on our web site, www.d1nation.com
There are different levels of gifting, but all will be recognized on our web site. For people wishing to receive recognition for their business and for corporate givers we have a great program to showcase our sponsors as well.
I humbly ask for your support. You can click on the links below. If you choose to use Paypal, it's easy. If you'd prefer to pay with a credit or debit card we can also accommodate as well. Either way, I'll provide you with a link.
