Advertising in the Community
Community advertising is another effective way to spread the word about your Challenger Division. Challenger Division flyers are available to be downloaded online at http://www.littleleague.org/Assets/forms_pubs/divisions/Challenger_PlayerRegistrationFlyer.pdf. These posters can be customized to contain your league’s contact information as well as registration dates and locations. Most community businesses such as grocery stores, community centers, post offices, doctor’s offices, etc. will allow you to hang the flyers at no cost.
Additionally, you may want to consider reaching out to your local media, especially if you are getting ready to offer the Challenger Division for the first time. Many newspapers, radio stations, and even local TV media will be interested in picking up a story about your league’s new offering and the positive impact that the Challenger Division can have on the community. You can reach out to the local media through a press release, or even a phone call.
