Sponsorship Notes

At De Hood, there are several individuals who have the desire and the ability to become future sporting professionals. In fact, we are not exaggerating when we say that some of them will most definitely become champions in their area of expertise.

Two and a half years ago, De Hood started as a boxing training club with the sole intention of using boxing exercises to improve fitness and use up excess energy. It is no coincidence therefore that out of the hundreds of youngsters who have taken part in the training programs, some have emerged with excellent potential. At this stage therefore, our list of potential champions is restricted to boxers but as we venture into other sports, we anticipate getting the same kind of results as we have achieved with boxing. For now though we are looking at obtaining individual sponsorship for boxers.

There are five basic requirements to become a champion boxer. The first is to be born with a natural sporting ability that all top sports people possess. Amongst other things, this includes endurance, fast reactions, good balance and the ability to focus. Secondly, you have to start training whilst you are young, when your natural ability to learn and adapt is at its peak. Thirdly, you have to have the desire and the determination to become the best. Fourthly, you need ongoing guidance to ensure you undertake the correct training course whilst building a solid and dependable character. Finally, you need the resource that will enable you to follow the prescribed training regime.

Most of the De Hood members who have been training under Reagan Denton for over two years have all adopted the ‘Hood’ ethos and meet the prerequisites as described above. Out of these, Reagan has selected those who he honestly believes have what it takes to compete at a higher level. In order to achieve this, funding is required for equipment, travelling expenses and additional training and we are therefore looking for sponsors.

Details of the individuals are included herein. The sponsorships we are seeking are as follows:-

  1. Company sponsorship where the boxer will promote the sponsors company by agreed advertising methods. The cost of this is negotiable and dependent on the boxer’s age and pedigree.
  2. Private sponsorship whereby an individual agrees to pay the necessary fees to enable the boxer to maximise his/her training regime and compete in competitions. Such an agreement would be open ended with the sponsor having the rights to terminate the agreement at any time. In most cases, the only reward the sponsor will get is to know that he has helped a young person navigate his/her way through their teenage years whilst retaining the ‘Hood’ ethos by staying out of trouble and keeping fit and healthy. By default, it will also give the sponsor first refusal to sponsor as per item 3 below.
  3. Dedicated sponsorship to enable a potential champion to train full time. This would only apply if
    1. The boxer’s individual record meets specified criteria.
    2. Reagan Denton vouches for the boxer’s long-term ability.
    3. The boxer agrees to comply with a list of constraints.
