youíve got talent and have set your sights high, then you should be able
to get sponsorship to help you reach your goals.
Gymnastics awe many people as they flip and leap through the air.
And while gymnasts donít need much as far as uniforms go, gym fees can
be expensive and coaches often charge a lot of money in order to help
you. If you can get a sponsor, you can help ease the cost of following
your dreams. Below you can find three ideas on how to get sponsorship
1. Hit the gym. Go to a gym, whether a local high school that offers
classes for its students or a gym dedicated to
training gymnastics and
apply for a position. The majority of gyms will offer free or discounted
use of their gym for their employees. So in addition to being paid to
coach others, you can use their gym for free. Since gym membership is
often a big portion of a gymnastís budget, your costs will be cut
dramatically if you can get access to a gym for free.
2. Find a good coach. The amount of money a
good gymnastic coach can charge
per hour is often astronomical, but this doesnít mean that you should
look for the cheapest coach out there. Some coaches will lower their
prices if you book more hours. So consider booking more hours at a time
in order to save in the long run. If your coach owns or operates their
own gym, ask them if they would give you a discount if you found others
to sign up for gym memberships. As your sponsor, your coach would
benefit with this agreement as well and therefore be more likely to help
3. Win events. If practice makes perfect, than competing in events is
the perfect opportunity to show off what youíve learned after your long
hours at the gym. Winning events might not just give you cash and
prizes, but it will also get you recognized by many of the
top coaches and gyms in your
area. So look around and find when the next competitions are and sign
up. If there is an enrollment fee, consider asking your coach or gym to
help pay all or a portion of it.
