Why We Need Your Help:

Our league is in trouble and dangerously close to losing our home. Due to the harsh economic climate and waning ticket sales across sports venues city-wide, we have been having a harder and harder time making ends meet. Our practice space in Shoreline serves the entire local skating community; but our rent is high. Our training programs meet the needs of skaters, from youth to adult; but our dues and drop-in fees alone cannot keep up with the costs of running our business. We have been working hard to evaluate our structure and take steps towards maintaining our community contributions while becoming financially stable in this new environment.

Our Long Term Plans:
We’ve transitioned back to a fully volunteer-run league, bringing the finances, marketing, and business back to the hands of the skaters. We are also continuing our community partnerships by renting out our home to many other local leagues for both practices and games. We’ve scaled back our Key Arena productions and are focusing time and energy on making the Rat’s Nest a home for most of our season bouts. We are also refocusing our marketing, sponsorships and fundraising to successful and repeatable campaigns that allow for consistent and year-round support.

How You Can Help:
While we have plans to help our league thrive in the long term, we still need a short term jump start to turn our strategies into reality. We are reaching out to our communities, our friends, and our families to ask for help. As an organization, we have learned a lot from these difficult times. But in order to implement change, and to keep improving and expanding our incredible athletic program, we need short-term financial assistance.  No donation is too big or too small.

Your Contributions:
By helping us out, we want to make you a part of our family. With each donation, we have some special gifts that you can receive, including a limited edition Save Rat City t-shirt!
