We are always open to partnering with individuals, businesses, and other organizations in the Durham community and beyond. Read more about our membership and sponsorship opportunities below, and if you have an idea for an event or partnership that you don’t see captured here, we are eager to hear more about it!
You can make a general donation, or purchase a membership or sponsorship package via Paypal (be sure to add a note with relevant details so we know what it’s for and where we should send any incentives). Please feel welcome to email us to ask questions or start a conversation about other ways we may be able to work together.
And remember, your contribution is tax-deductible— we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit!
All memberships are valid for one season (fall or spring) and are eligible for renewal the following season.

These sponsorship levels are designed for friends and family members to support particular players, or the club as a whole. Sponsorships and associated incentives are offered for a period of one calendar year.

Only two available per year, so act fast!
