Everyone involved in sports, and in particular the horse industry, knows how time consuming and expensive it is to just stay involved at a hobby level. Once you start adding in lessons, competitions, travel and more the level is raised. And to become competitive in international play, the stakes and the related expenses are even higher. The APA has worked hard to maintain its 501c3 non profit status which allows sponsors to see not only tax advantages, but a chance to promote themselves to a growing and exciting new sport and the folks who are passionate about it. Please support the Sponsors who have so generously supported the APA. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Contact us.
Triple Crown Nutrition Now Sponsoring APA Clubs
We have exciting news to share about our newest APA sponsor, Triple Crown Nutrition, Inc.! Triple Crown is now a corporate sponsor of the Minnesota Polocrosse Club and the APA.
Triple Crown has made a large investment in polocrosse this year and has created an APA special program available to all current 2017 APA members to help your club’s fundraising and promotional efforts. Simply by feeding your horse Triple Crown foods, you can raise money for your club to fund polocrosse growth in your community!
Triple Crown is a performance equine feed company that has been supplying its specialized feeds to the top horses across equine disciplines for over 25 years. Triple Crown feeds are unlike any other product line and are designed to address your concerns about proper equine nutrition and its benefits. Triple Crown feeds will maintain your horse’s high performance level and keep your horse healthy and in supreme condition. www.triplecrownfeed.com
Goal of the Program
The goal of the program is to increase trial and consumption of Triple Crown feeds and, at the same time, increase the amount of funds individual polocrosse clubs have to promote the sport. Funds can be used to purchased equipment, fund tournaments, awards, events, clinics, etc. No rebate money will be issued to individuals. Funds only go to established and recognized clubs or sanctioned APA tournaments. This is a great way to fund the development and promotion of our sport.
How can we have an impact on our new sponsor Triple Crown? By purchasing their 50lb feed products and telling great stories about our polocrosse horses being on their feed on their social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). “Before” and “After” pictures are great! Based upon 2017 rebate results and social media impressions, Triple Crown will consider more investment in polocrosse in 2018. It’s up to us to make this a success for the APA, polocrosse and Triple Crown.
In addition you will see the Minnesota Club offering various promotions by Triple Crown at targeted tournaments this summer. This is a 2017 pilot program exclusive to Minnesota Club. Based upon results we hope Triple Crown will expand the pilot in 2018.
Triple Crown Nutrition is a growing national company with over 4,000 distributors and retailers across the country. If it’s not in your local feed store, don’t hesitate to ask because Triple Crown is always looking to add new customers to their distribution system.
