The Lowcountry Highrollers have a variety of sponsorship packages to fit your needs. We are also always looking for unique new ways for our sponsors to get involved. If your company would like to offer service or merchandise in exchange for all / part of the cost of sponsorship, we will work with you to negotiate a deal that helps maximize your exposure and our appreciation.
While the our bouting season is 9 months long, the league stays active year round on behalf of local charities, sponsors and community affiliations.
Roller derby is an expensive sport that requires the purchase of skates and accessories, protective equipment, league dues and insurance. Our rollergirls can always use a helping hand, so we are proud to introduce the Lowcountry Highrollers’ Adopt-A-Rollergirl program!
This program enables companies, businesses, bands and private individuals to contribute directly to a Lowcountry Highroller’s derby career. Along with your donation easing the financial strain of participating in this growing sport, it will also provide your adopted rollergirl with the important knowledge that her hometown fans support her.
How Does It Work?
Donors may contribute any dollar amount between $25 and $1,000, which will directly help your rollergirl meet the financial requirements for the league and the sport. The benefits of adopting a rollergirl don’t end with the satisfaction of knowing you’re making a difference in her life. Donors who contribute $25-$149 will receive a signed photograph of their sponsored skater. Donors who contribute $150-$1,000 will receive a signed photograph, an LCHR t-shirt, and a thank-you mention on our website.
If you know a Lowcountry Highroller you would like to adopt, or for a list of available adoptees, please send an email to our treasurer, Wicked Intentions.
SPONSOR OUR JR. DERBY LEAGUE:
