Not because the book is so heavy it can be used as a dumbbell but because they exercise the mind which are increasingly becoming part of elite athletes’s everyday training.
We believe there is a positive correlation between reading and sports performance, here is why:
Since reading is educational in nature, every book offers new and different learning opportunities. Some may apply directly to life as an athlete, others may not. No matter what, the lessons learned and the knowledge gained from being a reader are invaluable, because unlike athletics, reading lasts forever, so its benefits continue to serve in the game of life, the most important of them all, long after the ball stops bouncing or the hockey puck stops gliding.
BENEFITS OF READING
BENEFITS OF PLAYING SPORTS
That being said, we have a great proposition for you!
Looking to help offset certain costs (tournament entry fees, new jerseys, etc.) related to your sport team? If you didn’t know already, we have a great fundraising program for you:
A U8 Co-Ed Hockey Team on Vancouver Island hosted a “Read-A-Thon Scratch Card” Fundraiser to help offset the cost of tournament fees.Below, you will find out why our “Read-A-Thon Scratch Card” fundraising program is the perfect solution to team fundraising – “Who Knew Sports and Reading Went Together!”
- By identifying 24+ supporters, players typically raised $115-$230.
- The team was invoiced after their fundraiser was over to pay for the cost of the cards ($10 per card), so no upfront costs!
- The Fundraising Coordinator printed off our incentive “Bookworms” card and gave each participant (player) a little reward to start off their fundraising campaign on the right foot!
- Many older siblings also wanted their own card to support their younger sibling (therefore, an additional $115 was put in those player’s accounts).
- Families even got in touch with their out-of-town family members via FaceTime to pick a circle and then would be sent the money via e-transfer.
- Once the other teams in their association found out about this fundraiser, 5 more teams signed up!
In collaboration with StickerCanada, the next 100 teams to sign up to do a “Read-A-Thon Scratch Card” will receive this free custom vinyl sticker to give to the first player on their team that returns their completed Read-A-Thon Scratch Card before the due date!
