Sponsorship Opportunities

Last year, the Pickering Soccer club applied for the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund, as a way to generate new programs that could expand our club and our facility. Our application was accepted, and the In Motion program was implemented. In Motion is a FREE Active Living Program for Adults 55+ that incorporates Health & Wellness Education, Recreational Activities and Social Interaction.  Our members have been meeting once a week since January – and this program has steadily grown from 18 participants the first week to over 100 regular participants and over 200 members.

As we enter into the final stages of our grant funding, we are now planning for the program’s sustainability. Our In Motion participants have been very vocal about their hopes that this program continues once the funding is complete. We would like to ensure that happens, because  the educational, recreational and social opportunities this program has created, has had such a positive impact on our members.

If you are interested in expanding your brand, or exploring sponsorship opportunities, please contact Tammy Lyle-Gravlev at communityprograms@pickeringsoccer.ca.
