Policy for Team Sponsorships

Updated August 2008

The league has adopted the following policy regarding sponsorships designated for a specific team. 

  • Any team can freely solicit sponsorships from any person, business or organization. All team sponsorship money must be used for the equipment, uniforms, tournaments, player registrations, clinics, camps, team parties or travel expenses for tournaments.
  • Sponsorship money may not be used to hire professional trainers for the team. 
  • In order to receive tax benefits from the sponsorship, the sponsorship must be made to the Santa Clara Youth Soccer League and identified as a team sponsorship. A percentage of all team sponsorship will be retained at the league level as stated in the SCYSL by-laws. 
  • The League will send a thank you letter to the donor which includes the League’s Tax Identification Number. 
  • Prior to receiving a check from the League, the sponsored team must provide a written signed statement listing the intended expenditures for the money. 
  • Once the written statement is received, the League Treasurer will write a check to the designated team representative. In the event that all the money is not used for the listed approved expenses, the remaining money is to be redirected back to the League.
