We are coming to you on behalf of the Pontiac Firebirds ABA (American Basketball Association) Professional Basketball Team. We are diligently working on building our coaching staff, securing a venue, and selecting players who will be representing Oakland County and Pontiac, Michigan. We are a professional organization that is dedicated to building solid community relationships while providing family entertainment. Our goal is to create a warm and friendly environment where friends and families may experience an enjoyable and affordable entertaining event. We believe a local inexpensive professional basketball team will be a great asset to the entire Tri - County area. Our team will give our community another positive outlet and boost the local economy. With a playing venue that seats over two thousand enthusiastic fans, we look forward to embracing local businesses and community organizations with anti-bullying, literacy and sportsmanship campaigns that will foster student achievement and character building within the viewing area.
We are reaching out to our community businesses for sponsorships and donations. No amount is too great or small. All funds go toward team expenses (administrative cost, coaches, trainers and player salaries, travel expenses, venues and security, insurance, day to day operational expenses, uniforms, etc.) and great community services events such as visiting community schools and making appearances to support charitable organizations. For those young and upcoming basketball superstars, we also sponsor youth camps and coaching clinics. Again, any amount of support is welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Please visit our website, Facebook and Twitter pages (facebook.com/FirebirdBasketball and twitter.com/FirebirdBasketball), and also learn more about the ABA at abalive.com. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (313) 215-2550 or at info@FirebirdBasketball.com.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
