1. Finalize your goal
Finalize your fundraising goal by tallying up the cost to update uniforms, purchase equipment and travel throughout the season. Once you have determined the amount, share it with your coaching staff and prepare an execution plan.

Calculate how long it will take to customize and receive your team’s athleticwear, order equipment, and book travel accommodations. After determining when down payments are expected, you can solidify a deadline to hit your fundraising goal.
3. Create or update your store
After finalizing your fundraising plans, contact a Champion Teamwear rep to create your TeamStore and customize Champion products to sell with your team’s exclusive art and colors.
